I've numerous sites and one of them took a major hit late last year, presumably with the latest update so many have been up in arms about.

Admittedly I'd long ignored that one site although I had intended to revisit it this year with major updates of my own. It's not a scraper site, everything within is original with thousands of original photos.

But what with the major drop in visits and ranking(s) I felt like simply putting it to the side. I've no qualms about doing that. This way I can attend to my other sites.

Here's the twist though. Googlebots are constantly there. I'd say once almost every hour and sometimes twice an hour.

Should I read into that? Or should I merrily go on my way?

Thank you in advance for any feedback. :-)

Google minor updates,I have some of the site's ranking dropped,Traffic declined by a third.I think it might be Google EMD update.
