following all the links and so on okay it all automatically knows what it can do and what it cannot do in terms of index right crawling right so then within that document you can say okay Google you know what I also have an XML sitemap and here's the location so knowing that because it fetched this document knowing that it will then go and look at your sitemap to see if there are any new URLs you included since last time it visit your website so therefore automatically to documents you know Google's crawling it much efficiently now okay this is why you need to use them so then let's say it's going to request this URL your landing page for example okay then let's say it's an HTML document so therefore this is how it

reads your web page okay now it will from top to bottom as in start of HTML document to the end of HTML document from top it looks surely it looks at the URL but it also attaches a timestamp to that crawl process so that it doesn't you know it doesn't recrawl it every day or it tries to guess when it should crawl it next and so on so that timestamp is important it does this for every single web document that is in essence right so then it looks at the head portion of a web document head portion are visible to search engines like Google okay and within it you can better guide Google to understand what your website is all about what your landing page is all about because remember what Google is trying to do
