This question on Meta Stack Exchange asks whether crawler visits count towards the 'number of views' of a Stack Exchange question (that determines the 'people reached' statistic on your profile).
Google returns a lot of results about indexing URLs but they apply (solely?) when you're the administrator of the website. As a consumer, can I ask Google Search to index/crawl a specific URL, for instance a specific Stack Exchange question?
I'm looking for something like the Wayback Machine homepage where you can just submit a URL in a form.
