Is this just my sites or somebody else is also seeing this?
Gbot crawling rate started faltering around Aug 28-29th and since Sept. 1st it only goes down on all my sites (as seen via WMT). Some sites are affected more than others but there isn't a single site in the account that has that graph pointing up, and some are down to 20% and less of what was the summer 2012 average.
Traffic hasn't been affected yet but I'm sure it will if the crawling rate keeps dropping like that. Sites are spread across different servers, so it's not a localized network access issue.
Anyone has an opinion on what's going on here?
