Big Googlebot Crawling Spike - Update Soon?

Noticed a huge spike in Googlebot activity, even higher than early July when the last Panda update came.

Anyone else seeing this? IMHO this is a pretty good early warning signal that a significant update is in the works as every time we've seen this spike it has been followed by a big update.

Something happened around the 8th of September. Traffic is holding steady, but Zombies out in full force since then... I even lowered my price to almost free and these so called "visitors" won't bite.

I'd call this one the Skunk update.

hmm another big crawl a few days ago, Pages crawled per day almost 10.000, normal 3000, thats the second big crawl in a week. So I had 1 big crawl and 2 very big crawls in 2-3 weeks.

[webmasterworld.com...] this could be the reason for the spike?

kheadley - nah I dont think so, to make such a change I would not think they have to spider a site fully, I think its more a turn on the algo system.

Fair enough was just a thought, quick question all what do you use to track the amount of crawling google has done? I have seen mozcast but would love to see better data.

so the stats you are referencing are only on sites that you control? I was assuming that they were general Google stats.

That's right. Only sites that you control.

Well im not sure what I can say to this, but once again I see HUGE peak in pages crawled, my average is 3000, today 11300, so can I look at this as a good thing for the future, well im not sure, but it is unusual, to get such peaks in crawled pages. I hope its a Panda thing, that they crawl the whole site a few times before its released out of Panda, but that is speculations.

I'm seeing a giant spike this past week too. My average is normally 147K, this week 363K.

I'm a Panda 1.0 hit site.

Just an observation - this thread is nearly a month long now, so we're definitely not talking about the same crawling spike that began the thread. In fact, we have seen a Panda Update in between the first post and the most recent.

Well I think this thread is more about those huge crawling hits once a week, first was before update and the last was also before or at update 2, its just unusual for my site. It can also be that those peaks are be cause so many changes is going on, on the site
