It seems that google bots aren't indexing pages of my sites (blogs) as fast as usual.

I checked for my competitors and other sites: not all site concerned, but i believe my sites are not alone to be under-indexed (not ignored) by google bots since a few days becqause some competiors are affected too.

To check this: i use google search for the last 24 hours and just pick up the update dates shown in serps like:


Doe anyone have more information about this problem? Am I dreaming or are there others plagued with the same issue?

Googlebot traffic, for us, has been up lately.

the issue seems to be limited to blogger/blogspot and does not affect all the blogs hosted by the service.

It would more likely affect blogs hosted by blogger using a custom domain.

does anyone know how to fix this problem?
