What is a Crawl Budget?

A crawl budget, in the context of technical SEO, a term used by marketers to describe the concept that a certain amount of time is assigned to a search engine bot to crawl and index a website placing greater emphasis on onsite optimization.

Crawl budget refers to the number of URLs a search engine’s spider will crawl during one session. A website’s crawl budget is influenced by the crawl rate that Googlebot has determined is optimal for the site and crawl demand which is determined by the website’s popularity and the need to keep Google’s SERP fresh for a particular search query.
