Googlebot crawls websites in an ascending order of URL length to ensure that it can discover the site's important pages first, such as the homepage and key category pages, before it moves on to less important pages. This crawling strategy helps Google to quickly build a complete and accurate picture of a website's structure and content, so that it can better understand how the site is organized and how its pages are related to each other. By crawling the important pages first, Googlebot can also identify and prioritize which pages should be indexed and displayed in search results.

This approach allows Google to efficiently crawl a website and gather the most relevant and important information about it. Additionally, crawling in ascending order of URL length also helps to prevent the crawler from getting stuck in infinite loops or spending excessive time crawling deeply nested and less important pages. Overall, this crawling strategy allows Googlebot to effectively discover, understand, and index websites in a systematic manner.

Exactly! By crawling in ascending order of URL length, Googlebot can navigate through a website in a logical and efficient way, prioritizing the pages that are most likely to contain valuable and relevant content. This helps Google provide users with more accurate search results and ensures that websites are properly indexed and represented in the search engine.
