hi first of all
it seems like GOOGLEBOT IS BACK - please confirm. today 17th June 2010 at 01:00am (+/- 1 hour for the different domans) CET (central european time) googlebot showed up again.
crawling in the same rate before the outage as before, verified over 12 domains.
only strange thing is the IP of some (only some) of these requests is 18.104.22.168 which does not verify with this method [google.com...] as googlebot. - which could scrappers.
also we found out that the remaining one percent on googlebot rewquests during the downtime were in fact either googlebot mobile, googlebot image and googlebot which fetches the simtemap.xml and googlebot on the home page request. every normal googlebot activity was actually 0.
but hey, googlebot is now back - i like.
this was the first webmaster world thread i actually posted actively - nice experience, but
- i don't think it makes sense to mix up crawling with indexing with caching with search refereed traffic with ranking with caffeine discussions - these are all interesting aspects of the google economy, but as they are measured differently (or not at all like caffeine) and so should be discussed separately. just my 2 c.
does anybody else see 22.214.171.124 requests (a few hundred per hour) with googlebot headers?
