Question: Does revamping your web design negatively impact your ranking?
Question: What is the difference between indexing and caching and crawling?
Answer: Changing your website is generally a good thing, but you do not want to roll out all your SEO changes at once in a massive way. This can trigger you being pulled out of the index at least temporarily as Google processes your changes. Be gradual with changes!
Caching is the last time Google took a ‘snapshot’ of your page, and is visible on the Google index by clicking on Cache. Indexing refers to whether it is in the index at all and you can find this out by using the syntax site:jm-seo.net (to locate pages for the JM Internet).
Crawling is the process by which the Googlebot first digests your page, as it were.
So the steps are 1) Crawling, 2) indexing, and 3) showing up on the Google page which includes a ‘cache snapshot’ of the last time you were visited.
