Googlebot not crawling

Seeks index page, then leaves

Googlebot visits often. It requests the index page, but doesn't crawl any deeper. This happens two or three times a day.

The MediaBot crawls deeper into the site without issue. The site runs AdSense.

Could there be anything in the server config that is causing this? It isn't robots.txt. The index page is lo-fi and xenu crawls it fine, as does the searchengineworld sim spider.

Any ideas?

@steve40, can phpAdsNew be a problem? it runs since 3 years on my page without any problems with G. G dont try to spider the AdsNew directory. my page is based on php with "any" static html-files and i see _never_ a problem like this. i think that was not the problem. you are back in serps, but not while u remove some php-scripts.

I am not sure what the problem was to be honest just what i did and what worked for me but the one interesting thing was that as i removed linktracking of each page they came back
so who knows
