I recently came across a few articles that said that using the Google Indexing API will make Google Bot instantly crawl and index all my website's pages. As I have a large number of pages on my site, it would help it tremendously as the normal Google Bot is only crawling about 500 pages a day.
I was wondering if using this API would really make Google Bot crawl all my pages instantly and have them show up on Google Search as an alternative to using a sitemap? Also, I heard from a friend that using the Google Custom Search API on my site would automatically make Google Bot crawl my site also. Is this true?
