Does Google Prioritize Crawling For US Sites?

Many webmasters and SEOs believe that Google prioritize the crawling & indexing of websites hosted in the USA as Googlebot starts from the USA.

But, is it true?

When asked about this, Google’s John Mueller replied that our crawlers are very fast and we don’t prioritize crawling of sites in the USA. He also added that crawling internationally works fine, and the difference for search is minimal. He also instructed everyone to host their websites wherever they want to host.

So, irrespective of trying to host websites in the USA, webmasters should focus on a hosting provider that is fast, safe and reliable.
