How long does it take to get crawled by the AdSense Mediabot?

I'm hoping being crawled will help

I'm new to adsense and am wondering how long it typically takes Google to crawl my site? I just downloaded the Preview tool, and believe I can't see the site because my site hasn't been crawled.

Also, does anyone know if getting crawled will help with profits?

Your help is appreciated.

Generall it only takes a couple of days for the site to be crawled, then It will happen countinously depending on how often you add new content make changes etc.

It normally happens within a few secs of an ad getting clicked.

I always thought that a page was crawled as soon as an ad was placed on it. I have been adding sites over the last few months and the ads seem to be on target from the get go.

I think initially they are based on either the rest of the site by broadly matching that content, and / or by url and filename. Once refreshed or clicked a few times (NOT BY YOURSELF!) then they get a more thorough looking at! And after some time depending on performance etc the best ads eventually "settle" on that page.

As far as I can tell...

Looks like my site must have already been crawled. I guess I still have lots to learn. Luckily, all of you nice folks are here to help.

It seems to me that it is like Nitrous said. I've put up a few new pages, and initially, the ads are either off-target, or more often, on-target to other pages in my site, but after a day or two, the ads seem more targeted to the specific page.

It's fun to watch this stuff from day to day and try to figure this stuff out.

I just studied it at a new report from me.

Just seconds after a visitors comes to a new page, the mediabot comes to.
