I know that they have some PR4 plus backlinks but non showing also no related:domain results.
I don't think I would crawl one of the sites if I was a self respecting robot but the other one has some merits and is very clean both codewise and link structurewise.
Google is in the process of testing several scoring system until they are sure of it then they will unleash googlebot to update the database.
Meanwhile, I think everybody is experiencing the same thing, just googlebot checking if your site was refreshed from your side and perhaps just checking if the domain is still online. But, not going deep beyond the index or the first level of the directory.
My thought of G testing on various scoring system is based on the flactuating traffic I get from Google. Like, weekends are historically low for me, but the past couple weekends I got weekends that are higher than my weekdays.
Or Mondays whichs are historically high for me, I've seen it goes down than any of the 6 days.
This bring to thought that it's kind of useless to do any tweaking right now.
Google mentioned at PubCon that they had been focusing on depth for the past while, but are now focused on improving relevance scoring. This will explain the lack of deep spidering for the past few weeks.
Patience is a virtue. It will happen soon enough.
Exactly what i was thinking. They are experimenting with new algos now
and will unleash googleboot for a full update only once they feel the new algo is satisfactory.
Should happen soon! get ready for some major SERPs movement.
Current Googleboot visits are just to make sure your domain(site) is still online.
My 2 cents.
It isn't. People are groping for easy answers that don't relate to the status quo.
Googlebot has been hitting all my sites like crazy for weeks now. Hundreds of pages, half or more of the domains.
This hyperactive googlebot activity is also obvious to observe in the Google Directory, dmoz and other higher PR sites that get fresh pages daily.
Better seek other explainations for your situations because Googlebot has been more active than it ever has been.
But, it will come soon(ish) no doubt - in the meantime we should be all adding content, links etc to make sure we are ready.
A Webmasters job is never done - ever :).
But, I say the deep crawling have started yesterday and I mean...DEEP including dynamic URLS.
For the full day yesterday, it's just 2.1 Googlebot all day long. Not sure this morning I haven't check my log yet.
I'll check again and check my other site as well.
We might be in for a huge update.
