Google starts crawling the higher pr sites first in the dance. Mine is a pr5, so I am guessing I fall in the middle of the dance
somewhere. Are these small bites I am seeing prior to our deep crawl the effect of google crawling higher pr sites with
inbound links to us, and after our crawl from inbound links of lower pr sites? -correct me if I am wrong.
Also for 4 months running now I have noticed an unknown bot in the logs exactly a day before google shows up. Is this a
coincidence, or has anyone else noticed this? I gave it up as coincidence until this past dance...thought there may be more to
it. Now when I see the unknown bot show, I set out the snacks for google.
more details about unknown bot? Maybe a rudimentary cloak checker?Not sure about that one, we don't use any sort of cloaking or .asp files, just good ol' fashion html. It has occured to me that this may be the old log software, but i doubt it. I'll know more next dance.
Maybe a rudimentary cloak checker?
I think Savvy was saying that it might be a check to see if you are using a cloak of some sort. Cloaking relies on the software being able to recognise a particular search engine and depending on who requests the page different versions are presented
SE = optimised content, keyword rich
User = flash version or similar
Engines know what goes on so they look for sites that serve different pages to different IP addresses, so by using new IP's SE can hopefull (they think) tell the difference.
