Google: No Such Thing As Two Waves Of Indexing Or Crawling

Wave Google

We have heard Google talk about two waves of indexing or crawling, espesially when it comes to processing JavaScript. But now Martin Splitt from Google says there is no such thing.

He did hint a while back that it is going away but now says there was really no such thing.

Martin said in a JavaScript SEO hangout at the 16:31 mark "First things first, there's no such thing as the second wave of crawling-ish." He added that by calling it that originally, it caused some issues. He said "The wave is an oversimplification that is coming back to us with interesting implications every now and then."

Here is the video embed where he said this:

So there you have it.

Forum discussion at YouTube Community.

Update: Some folks are doubting what Martin said, but Martin just commented on Facebook saying "It's all an oversimplification of what happens in the pipeline. There definitely isn't two waves of crawling. Indexing is a lovely can of worms, but yeah... not exactly two waves of indexing either."

Update 2: More questions answered on Twitter about this:
