Now, first, understand indexing and crawling –
Crawling – It is a process to follow all the links and discover new content.
Indexing – It is a process of storing all the web pages or web data in a big database system.

But since there are millions of pages that will fit your search, Google makes its ranking algorithm work to sort and arrange all the pages for you so that you can have the best answers for your query.
