I know spiders like to see new content on pages this encourages them to return to your page. being my company has over 40 pages id there anything I can add to the page that is automted that will update so whgen the spider somes back to the page he wil see something different. Is a time and date tag good? Banner rotation? or are these to small of a change?
Please advice

I wish we could all make spiders come back when we want them to. Unfortunately, one just has to wait. What you can do is re-submit your page to different search engines, that will usually cause the spider to crawl your page. You don't want to do that all the time though, you could be condsidered a spammer.

I ~have~ heard that you could "call" spiders much like you call hogs.

Like all things, it does take practice.

Like Grnidone said, it is a waiting game. You can also try resubmitting the pages again.
