As this one got "drowned" in the Burbon Update Thread... :)

Some people were talking about spider activity:

I noticed that on my domains the last Googlebot activity has been on June 5th. Since then, no more Googlebot. Up to June 5th 2 sites got crawled completely each day, on the other one g-bot took a few pages and on the third it took only the index page.

Since June 5th nothing... nada... zilch...

Anybody else experiencing this?

SERPs have not changed much but Cache-data has been revoked to May 31 even though the cache had been up-to-date. Weird if you ask me.

Do I have to worry? Usually patience pays ... but ... as you all know it leaves you with a bad feeling when the "normal" situation changes :)

Dawg, we've been hit hard by Bourbon, but Googlebot continues to hammer us daily.

Hi lorenzinho2,

thanks for your note. So far my ranking is good. Only the non-appearing Googlebot makes me worry a bit.

I have read on other forums that this is usually not a bad sign. On the other hand you find comments where there were problems accociated with the non-appearance of Googlebot.

Just prior to Bourbon I made a huge amount of file-renaming. This was probably not a clever idea ... I probably would not have done it, if I had knew that Bourbon was on the horizon.
