how long will it take google to index all these thousands of pages? can i tell google somehow that its okay to eat as much bandwidth as it wants? that I care about SEO so much?
great nobody takes me seriously as always great...
You might want to go back and reread #2 and #6. Deep links and a sitemap is all that you can really do to speed things up.
You could also take the question in #6 more seriously if you want to be taken seriously. Not the money part, but the explanation of why you've gone and done such a damn fool thing when you seem to care about the traffic and being indexed.
There is no way to *make* google crawl your site faster or add it to the index faster. There are only ways to encourage this, and there are damn few ways to do that. Deep links from external sites, good on-site navigation and a google sitemap are the only ways that I know of.
Here is my rule of thumb: You can expect to have every page that has a decent incoming link in the index the first month. Every page that is one click away from those pages the next month. Go one more click farther every month after that.
But you need to have enough PR on any given page for google to consider it worth their time to go an addional level. Internal links from a PR0-1 page seem to have a pretty low priority when it comes time to schedule Googlebot.
For four million pages I would want to have at lest a PR7 homepage and a serious number of deep links. and I would figure on it taking google most of a year to index most of it.
nobody links to me......
Uh, how did all those users find you to generate that content?
If you don't have links, google will not care about you anyway. Even if you get in because of the sitemap, there is a really good chance that they will drop you after a few months.
Stop hanging out in the google search forum and head over to the link development forum. Then start following the advice in the archives.
