Hey sup guys

Someone please help me. <snip> i see the fresh tags of 15th and 14th january on google but not next to mine. What should i do to make freshbot visit my website? <snip> I mean i make changes to my website everyday.

Freshbot seems to have been visiting all sites with a minimum PR a tad under 5 and updating about every other day since the last update. A little less than last month, but still fresh enough for most of us.

darkroom, If she has fallen out with you, maybe your PR has slipped?

I'm not sure whether it is the PR value that attracts her or the number of backlinks to a site. Difficult to tell as often the two go hand in hand. Anyone got a PR5+ site with only one backlink that freshbot doesn't visit? Or a PR 3 site with 5+ backlinks that she does visit?

It would be nice to try to establish exactly what the Freshbot visit criteria maybe ;)

I had freshbot coming by often also when my site was mostly PR3 and PR4. I think the visit frequency also depends on how fresh your content are on the average. The more often freshbot finds something fresh, the more often it will come by again.

I leave some milk and cookies on a low lvl directory page - freshy loves them! :)

Do you really think PR / back links make a difference?

It would seem logical that "freshness" was only based on "freshness"! ;)

Unless of course, the big G was limting the sites that freshy visits in order to save resources?


Have you made any changes to your site that may reduce crawlability?

Was your site newly listed in December? May have recieved an above average attention for the whole site being new?
