    Not an expect but I guess and stand to be corrected:

    Crawling: when a robot such as googlebot goes searching for information on web sites.
    Indexing: creating a database of crawled web sites.
    Caching: Creating a copy of crawled web site

  3. Thanks given for this post:

    Sound like a sensible answer.

    Sums it up pretty well, actually
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    almost.... Indexing is (also?) when a search engine indexes all the pages on your website, for easier search of a given term of topic on any particular website.

    Crawling- Search engine sends its spiders to your website.
    Indexing- Search engine visited your website and has added you to its database.
    Caching- Search engine took a snapshot of your website when it last visited and stored the data in case your website went down or if there are some any other issues.
