If you are updating a pre-existing database, it will go through all of the
URLs it has in the database and check if they have been changed. If they
are changed, they will be indexed and any new links will be followed.

If you have created new pages but haven't linked them from anywhere, it
wouldn't find them anyway. If you added links to the new pages, then the
changed files will be re-indexed and it will follow the links (and index
the new files).

Do you have links to these new files?
