It's getting slower still. Pretty much every site in the account is now at the lowest crawl per day since the visible part of the chart began (June 1st 2012)
What's unnerving about these swings is that there isn't a lot that ties the sites in the account together - different types of site, templates, link profiles, ages, niches etc. Just about the only thing that ties them together is me through this one WMT account. Do they dole out crawl budget per WMT account now?
