Can you tell what googlebot did while it was there? Search engines can get caught up in image maps and other spider traps and go nowhere.
googlebot has been mostly hitting my homepage index.html. My theory about this is it might be attempting to respider a large number of doorway pages I recently deleted from my site. I also use a custom 404 redirect in .htaccess
ErrorDocument 404 [.......]
that takes a visitor back to my homepage if they click to a non-existant page, instead of the usual "404 Not Found" page. I am assuming googlebot might be deindexing the missing pages.
