Inefficient Crawling

Search engine bots can waste valuable crawl budget on your low value pages and pages you may not even want crawled. Search engine time should be used to find and index more valuable pages on your site, otherwise important pages don’t get indexed.

Inefficient crawling also leads to important and/or time sensitive changes taking too long to show up in search results.
