Since then, only those two have been hit, though this last week they've been hit almost daily. And I'm seeing the fresh date updated every day or two in search results.
Can't wait for the deep crawl!
I have probably 50 pages of good content, but only three show up as indexed. I believe the problem is that my site map was completed without commenting out the links to pages that are not yet complete. Since the site is designed from a template every page that is not complete is the same with the exception of the URL. (Major duplicate content)
I have fixed that, but I still can't understand why only 3 of the 50 completed pages show up as indexed, but not any others.
Maybe I set off a flag of some sort?
Is it possible they are re-building their index from scratch? (on a data centre not visible) Producing a new map initially with index pages; then a deep crawl?
There's certainly been some strange behaviour recently: not just in the SERPs and data centres, but in the crawling patterns. And GG has essentially admitted the Directory was bust for a period. It's abundantly clear that some sites are going up and down like yo-yos.
