Small doc update, so that users of the documentation can easier understand what are database indexes.
Issue link https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/21986
I'm not too familiar with django, so there could be a better link that wiki.

To test out my change, perform following steps:

  1. Checkout my change
  2. go to docs folder && run make html
  3. Open file _build/html/topics/db/optimization.html in a browser

Cavet: This is my first pull request, let me know if I've missed something.

The Wikipedia article for database indexing is a little dense on technical details. While a valuable resource for those looking for more detail, a passing hint that you should index fields you do lookups against often would serve most people reading this page as good as is Priam probably necessary.

Agreed, please send a new PR if you can expand this a bit as noted above and on the ticket, thanks!
