Massive crawl here also. For about the past week 2-3 pages per second from 10 or more ip addresses. I want to believe all the attention is a good thing, but of the over 16,000 pages indexed by google none are rankng for anything including distinct company name. Very little traffic from G and intestingly more traffic from google.br than google.com (seems odd to be since it is .com and located in US). The not ranking may be in part due to a major rewrite of all URLs. Only a handful of pages have PR at this point. Hopefully a bigger better update is coming. As much as I have read about Allegra I don't quite understand exactly what it did other than make some happy and some sad. I can't help but to believe if Google feels my site is important enough to crawl and index that many pages it must be important enough to rank somewhere. Does anyone have any relative data to manage ranking expectations. What is reasonable? If on page one MSN page three Yahoo where would be realistic expectations for Google? page 10? 20? 1000? I would be curious to know if anyone has any data on this.
