Whither Freshbot?
Haven't seen Freshbot in some time

 7:05 pm on Jan 13, 2004 (gmt 0)

I used to get Fresh all the time. I haven't seen it in a few weeks. No freshtags either. Where has my little freshie gone? Hopefully not hiding in a spidered hole.

You're not alone. I'm also waiting on a few sites.

Google's Got Them, They have all those missing backlinks, PR info, fresh pages, Disappeared Titles, and lost sites, and the all important SERPs. They are playing with all this on those datacenters we cannot get to. And WAM! We will get another surprise here soon!

Pure Speculation On My Part!

I see googlebot almost every day but no fresh tags even though I have new content on the pages spidered

freshie still lives. just one example:

[Title of index page]
Description: ******....
Category: ************
www.********.org/ - **k - Jan 12, 2004 - Cached - Similar pages

(info is *** over to avoid site promotion within thread.)

While I figured it out.
Turns out Freshbot went on a binge around new years, only refreshing sites that sold online liquor and prescription medication. Then ms. minty fresh went off and visited thousands of porno sites and online gambling venues. It would have been the end, but eventually freshie spidered a few hundred pages from the Betty Ford Clinic. Now freshie is in counseling with a support group of other washed up ex-celebs, including A Tandy TRS-80, Texas Instruments and a couple of colecovisions. Rumors of nightly visits to an al-qaeda website and a newfound commitment to Jihad are totally untrue. Rumors of a wild affair with Chelsea Clinton are mostly untrue. Rumors that Freshbot is part of a vast government conspiracy to control the minds of webmasters and bring about armageddon as well as the return of "Wings" to primetime TV are totally true.

Personally, I think freshbot is staying at the Paris Hilton right now. ;)

It's still around. I have freshtags for Jan 12 showing on the main pages right now. Prior to that was Jan 8. Lately, there haven't been tags showing as often as at other times, but the bot has been fairly active.

Yes I have been a bit troubled. Most of my sites get a fresh tag every few days but my main big site with over 5000 pages in google has seen nothing for nigh on 2 weeks.

I can see fresh tags for Jan 12 showing now.

OK, Now one of my blogs that links to my site has freshtags, but my site does not. What gives? The Bog hasn't had fresh for several weeks either? The site has PR6 shouldn't fresh be around soon?


 7:19 am on Jan 17, 2004 (gmt 0)

Seems to me like its taking longer than it has in some time to get new pages added to the index.

LOL - don't you mean IN Paris Hilton?
