Googlebot out walking again?

Or am I just special?

Cool! So it's seems I'm not the only one who's started to see the Googlebot in his dreams after all... :)

Just joking. In fact, the mighty G'bot was wandering across my web site again yesterday and today.

Ahhh she's here, crawling around like some sort of sexy minx. Going in a bit deeper now..... Ahem, so to speak.

Of course, by the end of the month the GoogleEmpire will probably forget all about me again - after all, they have over 10,000 e-mail messages a week to cope with.

:( (and cue sad music, rain, tears etc)

The rate at which some sites are being updated within Google is pretty impressive. We had some pages spidered here a little after 12am saturday and were pulling referrals before the super bowl (about 39hrs).

The GoogleBot did a deep crawl on my site last night.

I hope it kicks the PR 0 issue I have been having for 2 months. Last month I did not see a deep crawl in the logs.

The Googlebot has been crawling hundreds of pages a day at my site for close to a week, I'd guess. Which sounds about right, since the deep crawl usually begins soon after the monthly update.

I can see the feature now...

Include only pages that 
( ) are minty fresh
( ) are lemony fresh
( ) are pine woods fresh
( ) are musky
( ) taste like chicken
( ) contain no preservatives
( ) have that new car smell

I suppose if Google decided to read CSS it would be possible to bring up pages with the same color schemes, font styles, etc. An amusing way to waste bandwidth, perhaps. :)

freshness would be a great way to get rid of dead wood, and pages that have outlived their usefulness, and increase relevance for all.

Also SEO crafted pages that never change because they are proven SERP winners and can't be changed...

Thats as long as Google knows the difference between real new content and not just a rotating javascript quote of the day or rotating SSI include...!

Freshness - now add that to the increasingly long but effective equation of text analysis + pagerank/linking + spam detection - and Google may place themselves a further step away from their competitors...

I think so, judging from Dr. Eric Schmidt [cnn.com]

As a rule, we don't preannounce new features. But the most important one coming up is more recency added to the search index. When I started at Google, the company was out of date, on average, every two weeks because the crawl was a monthly cycle. We want to get to the point where Google is updated on a daily basis.

We are working on algorithms to detect which sites are having high traffic or high page rank or high change rates. We want to make sure those pages are as current as possible.

Not exaclty new, but it looks to me like an indicator of Google having more than just "Fresh" and "Maybe Stale" listings. Once a week would be good for a lot of sites.

True, True.

Plus it will help people who need their pagerank back and cannot wait a month ;)

Good 'ol Googlebot is all over our site as well....keep 'em coming.

The cache that hadn't been updated for many, now seems to finally be updated.

Google bot comes to my site on the 4th or 5th of every month for a lite crawl, and then I get wacked with a deep crawl on or about the 27th.
Anyone else have the same pattern?

We are working on algorithms to detect which sites are having high traffic or high page rank or high change rates.

As we talked about back in november(?), make sure your server supports "last modified" or you might not taste minty fresh to GoogleBot.
