Googlebot Timeout?
Is Googlebot impatient when retrieving pages?

 4:08 pm on Apr 10, 2003 (gmt 0)

I have a slow connection to my server (384K), and I'm concerned that Google has not indexed a couple of my long pages. I'm thinking that perhaps Google gives up while waiting for the whole page to load, so it skips the page.

Is this possible? The page should load in under a half second, but maybe googlebot is not that patient?

Has anyone experienced half of a page in Google's cache? (Like it cached what it found before a timeout.)

Googlebot stops indexing after 101k per page, so if your page is longer that that GGbot will not index the rest.

Timona: GGbot

You think it's GG's personal bot?

Is that 101K of HTML page, or 101K total? For instance, do images figure into that total?

nope, the images are not included in the 101kb, only your plain html file.
