Bigger Crawl Budget
No More Wasted Crawl Budgets
Manage your own crawl budget before Google does.
If Googlebot struggles to read your content, some pages will have missing text, links, or images (or be left out entirely). This means you won’t compete with fully-rendered pages.
Work Smarter with Resources
Use Your Crawl Budget Wisely
Gain a competitive advantage with a bigger crawl budget.
Search engines dish out resources according to the size of your website, popularity in SERPs, quality of content, industry niche, health status, and more when compared to competitors. Regardless of your budget, bots will continue to crawl—even if it means using up your whole budget on a page that doesn’t add value to your bottom line. That’s where optimization comes into play.

Bigger Crawl Budget FAQs
A crawl budget is a calculated number of pages search engine bots can crawl within a certain period of time. Once your dedicated budget is exhausted, bots can no longer crawl or index the pages until the next crawl. If a page is half-indexed or unindexed after this process, your content is invisible from any search query. This blog will tell you more about optimizing your crawl budget for better results, including how to calculate your limit.
Googlebot uses a crawl budget to index a page. [Note: you cannot be indexed if your content isn’t crawled.] Once indexed, search engines will determine the page rank based on its technical SEO qualities and other related factors. If you do not get indexed due to JS SEO issues, your content won’t appear in SERPs.
You can’t ask search engines like Google to increase your crawl budget—but you can configure your website and use a web optimization tool like Prerender to distribute your crawl budget more efficiently. This can also be achieved by alleviating the amount of rendering that Google needs to do on a JS-heavy web page before crawling it. Below are some optimization ideas that you can implement on your site. For the step-by-step guide, find it here.
