Google’s John Mueller said on Twitter that if he had to simplify crawling priority, how Google prioritizes how it crawls the web, it would not do so by the size of a site. Instead, he would prioritizes how it crawls the web based on “the additional unique & important value provided by the pages.”
He said this on Twitter after a bunch of back and forth around questions from some SEOs on why larger sites seem to get crawled faster.
If I had to simplify crawling priority, I wouldn’t do it by size, but rather by the additional unique & important value provided by the pages.
