Googlebot Visits - What to make of this (and that)
If Googlebot visits can any inferences or predictions be made?

This morning I took a look at my stats and noticed that I had 7,977 hits from Googlebot month-to-date. That was an increase of 2,200 from just a couple of days ago. About 20 minutes ago I was looking up some visitor data and saw that since this morning my total for the month from Googlebot is up to 15,397. I have never had anywhere near this much GBot activity.

Here's my question. I only look at GBot stats to see if Google has found a new site or new pages. Can anyone tell me if there is anything that can be learned or predicted from the volume of GBot activity?
Is there a correlation between robot visits and indexing and or ranking? Does anyone notice any patterns?

I guess the bottom line is, besides getting found, does this mean anything?

The simple answer is: "No, this doesn't means anything, except your bills for bandwidth will grow"

Isn't possible to look at the ip addresses and then find out what data center it is from. I'm sure there is information around about the datacenters. You could then bump that up against the google architecture and the different bots and their rolls. This may show a certain pattern, and allow somene to surmise that is was a quick check or a the start of a deep crawl.

comments, ideas!
