Also, just to provide some more info, our site has about 1500 or so pages, but in WMT, it's showing that it crawls average 2300 pages per day, with high of 5000+ pages/day and low of 500pg/day. Isn't that kind of excessive considering that we only have about 1500 pages? I did an "allinurl" and it shows 1500 pgs indexed, and that's pretty close to what we have. We did have a forum with a lot of pages, but all the forum pages have been noindexed many months ago.
Also, with 1500 pages in our site, what's an optimal number of pages googlebot should crawl each day? 300, 500, 800? I don't know.... what should I set the crawl rate to be? It's currently on default rate as set by google.
