Any thoughts? Anything we can do to increase the crawl rate?
I speak from experience here. A couple of years ago I changed a site from static pages to dynamically-generated pages so I could automate it. Between the host's poor mySQL performance and my own sloppy programming, it was a dog of a performer and Google slowed down to crawling a handful of pages per day. Retooling my software brought the response times back down to something reasonable (<500ms) and Google restored its crawl rate to "normal" in a couple of weeks.
