I've done a bunch of searches this morning--not a fresh date to be found. I think the Googlebot fell asleep.

edited: the last visit in my logs was on 31/Jan/2003:23:23:03 but it only got robots.txt, no real crawling.

I'm pretty sure this could mean the deep crawl is about to begin. To me, the beginning of the deep crawl is as big of an event as is the update...I'm surprised more of a 'deal' isn't made of it on this forum :)

Nothing here since:

64.68.82.58 - - [01/Feb/2003:19:46:32 -0600]

No deepcrawler - at least I've had an extra week to do more optimisation on my site. One of my competitors has suddenly woken up and done some SEO, so I need to beat him back into his place. ;)

wow. i thought it was just me. Almost went off the deep-end with my hosting co. for them tring to tell me that there's been no bot in like 2 day(for lots of high ranked sites). I "guess" i feel somewhat better now knowing that it's the bot, not my logs that are MIA. Thanks all.

I haven't seen her yet but I've cleaned up my place and shoved the laundry into a back closet.

I'm with you, big_softie, Miss Gbot visiting is the real deal. The update is nothing without a nice long visit from her.

I appear to have been indexed by the freshbot several days ago. Feb 1 tags disappeared, but the Jan 29 - Feb 1 freshbot hits, hitting my site like crazy, picked up a lot of changes that seem to be in the non-fresh index. I never saw 216.239 the entire time.

As a follow up to my last post because it's a bit vague...

I watch my logs like a hawk when I'm near the internet. My site is PR6 and has been getting freshbotted regularly for several months. I'm used to watching fresh results come and go and seeing the deepcrawl. This is different. I'm sure that 64.68.82.xx has moved me into the permanent index somehow since Feb 1.

Hello,

How can you tell that Googlebot has visited other than running a report on your log file? Is there an alternative way?

Thanks!

I just looked and I have 64.68.82.xx coming through again right now but no 216.239

<added> palmal, usually the log files can be opened with a text editor like Wordpad, along with all the log analyzer programs. If you can just ftp dl the raw files and look at them in Wordpad, then search for 64.68, you'll find if freshie's been there. You'll see something that says googlebot somewhere in it. 216.239.xx.xx is the deepcrawlbot, if we ever see it again, and you can do the same thing for that</added>

This is true, but you can also open your log files in Excel as a tab deliminated file which will allow you to sort them by what ever you're looking for.

Also, I'm on a Mac and use Fetch as my ftp program and it allows me to view the file on the server without downloading it. Maybe your ftp program will allow this also. I can take a peek anytime and just scroll down to look for the 216 or 64 ip numbers.

Freshbot hangs out at my site, but no deep crawler. Give deepcrawler a chance, it's only Feb 4. Remember that the last serp update came a little early.

The freshbot's come back to me, only about 50 or so requests, but better than a kick in the behind. :)

Hey EasyCall, I've just been playing with the log files with Excel, very cool. It never occured to me to open them that way before. Thanks.

So much for my theory of having been put in the index by freshie... it's back to the last update now. Still no 216.239.xx.xx
