Search engine crawler —– ever heard of it

This is called indexing. That means if any page is indexed in Google’s database then only that page will be shown by Google.
How often Google indexes( crawls) our website?
After every 24 hrs, it does this depending upon how frequent data has been updated to the website.
If no new content is found then this crawling is delayed.
This means as frequent you are uploading data to your website more often it is to be indexed by GOOGLE.
