I have a relatively large website. Each page has several images. Google indexes my website very slowly, but it actively crawls my pictures. Does changing the Google Crawl Rate have an impact on Google's Image Bot? In other words, does Google's Crawl Rate only affect the Google Bot or does it affect the Google Image Bot as well?

1 Answer 1


You can setup crawl rate for certain bot in your robots.txt, like

User-agent: Googlebot-Image/1.0
Crawl-delay: 10
