I rebuilt a site a month and a half ago (completly rebuilt) and it got crawled by Googlebot at the beginning of the month during 6 days in a row. Since then, nothing, no Googlebot.
Well, in the SERPs, I could find the old pages, but since the past 10 days, it came down from 20 pages to 2 pages only available today.
Would that mean that I will get all my new pages in the SERPs soon?
Thanks for the feedback.
Another site, first online at the beginning of May, and indexed on 2003-06-16 was freshed on every page, every single day from 2003-07-07 to 2003-07-19, but hasn't been freshed since then. [Exception: a newer page was freshed once on 2003-07-21 and just that page].
I would agree I monitor a few sites. Most get hit every day but a few don't.
Yeah, I run quite a lot of sites and I see quite a variation in the frequency of Googlebot accesses...
I run a script to check the last bot access for each site and order the list by date to see which sites were most recently indexed.
Here are the current results...

Oh... don't start me! It's been an absolute and total nightmare.
You know the feeling... distress, frustration and anger all rolled into one. Knowing that there is nothing you can personally do about it, and cursing everything that moves. Praying that Googlebot will stay away for a few days, but knowing it won't.
When it is back up tomorrow, the next phase kicks in. Worrying about the implications. Checking Google every 5 minutes for signs of impending disaster.
Someone tell me it will be OK... or you'll see a grown man cry!
The small nfp site I agreed to service 18 months back, when I was absolutely greener than popeye's spinach, survived near on 3 weeks worth of dead time in April '02.
The prior hosting arrangment went dark sans warning, but they were sending word to the nfp org everything would be straightened out. Being both a newbie webhead and a volunteer, I had little choice but to defer to those who accepted the explanations. I did begin to start hunting alternatives just in case, a wise course of action as it turned out. All was well again in short order.
Excluding a couple of self-inflicted newbie hiccups, the general pattern over the past 15 months has been steadily improving visibility and traffic for our regularly expanding content base.
I'm sure it helped some that for our most common 2 word phrase the typical number of results returned are a tad over 1.4 million. It likely would have played differently in a field where the returns total 2, 4 or 6 fold that level.
