OHHH, ATW PLEASE COME BACK TO ME! I AM YOURS!
too bad wake up today buy Fast didn't pay a visit the whole night? :(
Looks like I will need to wait for the next update before it come back to take the more valuable pages.
What is ATW update cycle? 2 weeks?
Happens on a ongoing basis - smaller chunks at a time, around 25% I think. Sometimes we see a major update though.
Been a while since I really dug into it though. Anybody with more specific numbers?
Google's excessive weighting of inbound link anchor text
Hmm, this might be a good news or bad news. Since we know 'how it works' and after we do some 'keyword research', we have the ability to raise the ranking by using the correct anchor text. :)
But it is quite frustrated that google don't really care on the theme where the link is file. Google should check the title of the page with the link and compare it to its link to make them more relevant.
For ATW, sometimes I do see funny results appearing #2 and #3. It is better to be irrevalant so that people will still checking other sites below until they reach mine. haha. What's good on ATW is we don't need to wait so long to see the results appearing.
Same story with a site here. Had initially PFI'ed a couple of selling pages from the site. Now the main crawler has hit the site, took links from a secondary bottom navbar.
An interesting tidbit here is the free pages already appear in the db, but without the usual title and snippet.
Instead ATW gives the filename as title, and the linktext as snippet.
One reason could be the clustering/collapsing [webmasterworld.com] of pages from the same site that we've seen FAST do.
My site is new, so ATW come step by step, the 1st update takes only the main page, 2 weeks later it follows all the links in the main page but in the main directory, I believe on the next update, it will reach all.
For the root index lost page bug, it happend to one of my site and friendly sole from ATW has help me to solve it.
