Here are a few things I've noticed on a couple of new sites (less than a year old). The past few months as those sites (index pages) have increased in PR, Googlebot has gone deeper and deeper into their pages. Also, after PR updates, there isn't an immediate increase in traffic to those sites, but as Googlebot makes it rounds over the next few weeks, the pages that are hit again or for the first time in these domains start to show improved rankings. This didn't use to happend (pre six months ago) this is something new and I don't think I would have noticed it if we didn't have new domains within Google.
If anyone else has seen this happening and/or has additional information, please post. Thanks.
