If this follows the same pattern as the last couple of months, this means we might be several days off (Wednesday perhaps) away from a change in SERPs.
This far, today, 44 out of 56 googlebot visits are by the Mozilla/5.0 type.
For the record: I have implemented the nofollow link attribute on most of my affiliate links.
Edited some spelling
Where is the significance in thos Mozilla-bot-thing?
Sorry for the post-and-run.
There has been speculation about the Mozilla 5 bot beeing used for picking up duplicate content and being java enabled.
I've been trying to follow it around today, and cannot see any particular pattern. I'm not positively sure, but it looks as if the Moz kind haven't visited any new pages at all. It has however been onto quite a lot of orphaned pages (not actively linked from the site any more).
I would really love to know though.
I hope they are smart enough to do a fast deep crawl outside of my prime traffic hours or this could be brutal!
Since it is impossible to crawl the whole net at once, I keep on wondering WHAT bandwidth do those guys at Google have?
This is certainly a big advance in Google indexing technology if this proves to be the case...
