I find it all a bit discouraging that when you bother to tune your seo to play by all the rules, you end up not being found. On Google this is not a problem and I have managed to get to number 1 for a few phrases because they spider me twice a week.
Thanks for your advice.
What do you mean by dropping out - they are not in the index anymore, or they don't rank as well as before?
Did you check your logfiles for Fast Crawlers?
The pages are just one by one not being listed anymore on ATW. If I check every few weeks another couple are gone.
The ones that are there haven't been updated for about 3- 6 months, except the Index page. The FAST crawler only spiders the index page of my site now (I can see this from the logs).
As for Googlebot, I don't pay anything for it to come regularly - it just does. It doesn't always spider all the pages when it comes - it does this about once a month or so, but it usually spiders the main pages when it comes.
It never used to come that often.
I do have a Google Search box on my site, and I do use adwords, but don't they claim that it doesn't make any difference?
I have no idea why it comes that often, but I am glad it does as it makes seo much easier!
