    What do you mean by "request indexing"? I've never heard of that before May 6 '17 at 2:17
  • "request indexing" - I assume you mean the the "Request indexing" option in GSC after having used the "Fetch as Google" tool. (?)

You have included few things in the question, the following should clarify.

XML Sitemap: When you submit XML sitemap, Google algorithm reviews it and it will index pages based on its algorithm. There is no guarantee that it will index all submitted URLs.

XML Sitemap Priority: It only lets the search engines know which pages you want for the crawlers understand in terms of priority. The priority you assign doesn't influence ranking.

Re-Indexing: Google algorithm re-crawls pages in certain interval regardless you submit xml sitemap or not.

How to get crawled fast: There are several factors you can consider like:

  • Have HTML sitemap, still very handy search engines.
  • Do internal linking from important pages based on your priority.
  • Submit XML sitemap
  • Share pages on social media sites, G+ is an important to place to start.
  • Build authority in general which can also influence fast crawling.
  • Sitemaps are generally only used to audit that Google can effectively crawl a site. Where a sitemaps have a real benefit is for extremely huge sites and sites that have content behind a login or pay wall.
