Crawl Demand Definition & Meaning

What Is Crawl Demand?

Crawl demand is how much demand a search engine crawler specifies for a website’s URLs based on the popularity and staleness of the pages in the index. Crawl demand is also known as crawl scheduling.

Crawl demand impacts the crawl budget for a website, which is the number of URLs a search engine will crawl on a website on any given day. You can improve crawl demand by publishing fresh content, updating old content, and keeping sitemaps up to date.
