Googlebot getting tired?

I found an interesting new service from Google called Google sitemaps (I haven't seen this mentioned elsewhere. Seems you can give Googlebot a helping hand if some pages are not getting indexed?

Seems strange that Google are introducing this service now and not try to improve googlebot when following links.

I'm so disappointed. I submitted my sitemap 5 days ago. Googlebot has crawled over 6 megs of my site and STILL no appearance in the index. *sigh* By comparison MSN has practically crawled the entire site in the first week of me being online. But it's almost a month and Google still hasn't bothered to index me. Grr. What's it going to take?

Maybe a real inbound link?

>> first week of me being online

doesn't matter how fast they crawl you; it's not like you will rank high anyway.

I have plenty of inbound links from high-ranking sites.

Hi,

the Sitemap doesn´t work at my project.

I have this sitemap:

<url>
<loc>http://www.meinedomain.de/url1.html</loc>
<lastmod>2005-06-28</lastmod>
<changefreq>daily</changefreq>
<priority>0.9</priority>
</url>
...
...
...
etc.....

Ist this correct or has anybody suggestions for improvement? Thanks!

Seems to be ok. Don't forget to wrap that into

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84">
....
</urlset>

Remember that priority is only an instrument to weighten a page within your site. You wouldn't gain pageranks with that.

webyfro, I did a allinurl for the domain in your profile if that is the domain in question then Google returns exactly two mentions of that domain.

And according to Google it hasn't indexed the pages those "links are on", in fact one of those pages Google will never get a response from.

If it is another site then I can't help you without some additional information.

Has G sitemap slowed down?

At first, they were reading my sitemap every few hours. I just checked and it has been four days since my last download.
