The traffic dropped, for a while I thought there was something wrong with the server.
I had a domain mysite1.com and then did 301 redirect to a new domain mysite2.com and then (after google got about 5 pages from mysite2.com) - I did another 301 from mysite2.com to mysite3.com and set mysite1.com to also do a redirect to mysite3.com.
So all pages from mysite1.com dropped, and I have a few pages from mysite2.com and none from mysite3.com.
The site is about 1400 pages, how much time would it take to index under a new domain (right now PR is grey) ?
Do we have an official start date? I hoping to see it continue through the 3rd or 4th.
Google finished up on all my domains yesterday. Googlebot usually comes back at the end of a crawl to make sure everything still there.
Bwahahahaha! (Maniacal laughter 'caused by all his extended url's being crawled and indexed, even with ? and & in them) Thousands I tell you, thousands!
2868 pages on Sunday
2152 pages yesterday
1361 page already this morning and still going.
a few thousand to go.
Caught me off-guard. I didn't think it would start as soon as it did. Had to hurry with my updates and I'm afraid I got many in too late. Oh well, I won't miss next month's!
Will probably have mixed results this crawl. Suffered a hard drive failure (and no redundancy which was part of host's contract) in the middle of googlebot's deep crawl session and was down for 48 hours.
Good old "Murphy's Law" - what can go wrong, will!
