Freshbot Paranoia

 3:43 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

I normally see freshie about 1000 times a day but today (may 1st) nothing at all. Is this just me, has google banned my ip bank, am I being too paranoid - help...

Yes, you're being paranoid. I haven't seen freshbot in three days.


 4:00 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

I might not be as I've just seen my page count with (www-sj) go down from 43,000 to 18,000


 4:05 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

no fresh dates as of now also...


 4:08 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

i got one freshbot hit a hour ago.


 4:13 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

Freshbot is around today, I've seen it in logs. Only a handful of entries, but it is around.


 4:17 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

Just checked my logs freshbot has four hits in 12 minutes. It's out.


 4:17 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

if u did get hit by freshie are the hit count lower/higher or normal?


 4:24 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

I don't really track freshbot. I just notice it.


 6:15 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

Haven't seen freshie for a few days either.

Normally just about every day.

Just what is the "Crawling power" of google? I see a lot people posting questions like this, saying "I haven't seen Freshbot in 14 hours!"

I run a very small, very new site, and it's not unusual for Freshbot to take a 2 day hiatus from our site. I just assumed the Net was a really huge place and he had other places to go, and he got back around to be when I reached the top of the pile again...

Other people seem to expect daily multiple FreshCrawls.

a)Am I niave about by abyssmal crawling schedule

b)Are they unrealistic about their assumed daily crawling

c)Are the expectations of a 100 page, 2 month old site and a multiple tens-of-thousand page, decade old site so totally different that I should shut up and go back to lurking?

<don't be afraid to answer "c">

LOL - Dont go back to Lurking and if no-one else has said it Welcome to WebmasterWorld it is great!

Not sure that anyone can predict the schedule of Freshbot - on my personal site it comes about once every other day and fetches 100 pages. (This is the entire site)

On my works website - it rarely visits and fetches 1-10 pages.

Thing is when you get used to it coming once every 2 days or whatever and then there is a gap you start to worry that it may not come back.

Whew!, Freshie stopped by my site overnight, only took robots.txt and the root / though.

I was starting to get a bit concerned it's been nearly 5 days since the last visit, that's the longest absence of a googlebot on my site for months.

Haven't seen the little bugger for more than a week now. Not stressed though as it has happened before. Then again last time my pr dropped when he came back.
