Just curious if anyone is seeing the following phenomenon:

A single Google Freshbot ( spiders my site daily taking thousands of pages however, the the pages are spidered based on the length of the URI (ie. [example.com...] where the keyword-phrase is the URI.

This particular bot is spidering the shorter URI's FIRST, then sequentially coming back for the longer mulit-phrase URI's. ie.


Has anyone else seen this behavior?
