---- Number of pages indexed drops - a lot and very fast.

>>How many visits daily do you get from Mozilla Googlebot? I am curious what is "normal" for one day.
For my site, Googlbot is more a hit and run bot. It appears, pulls a lot of pages then goes away for a bit. So I'm not sure what an average day looks like.
Earlier today I had Mozilla Googlebot grab 350 page (35% of the site) over a 3 hour period. After seeing this thread I just checked my logs and Googlebot 2.1 has grabbed about 300 pages over the last hour or so. Up until today:
Googlebot 2.1 = 3,043 pages Mozilla Googlebot = 2,559 pages
Despite all this spidering, I continue to lose pages in BD's index. From a high of 1,020 pages I'm now down to 312 (with about 100 of those being supplemental) - an all time low for the last two years.
