What is indexing?

Indexing is a systematic arrangement of entries that is designed to help users to location information in documents, databases and other data files.

Indexing is basically the process of creating an index and it is extremely important, especially as a dataset increases in size and it becomes more difficult to locate specific data.

Typically indexing is done automatically as data is stored on disk based storage devices in blocks.
