This is weird. At 6:27am PST googlebot - mobile completely stopped crawling our site. We are mobile friendly and had a usual rate of approximately 400 hits a minute. Nothing changed on our end.

Has anyone else noticed in their logs that googlebot - mobile has stopped pinging? All other bots including Google are hitting their normal rate.

Update: @ 2pm PST mobile began crawling again. Very strange. If you noticed something similar please let me know.

Do you mean Googlebot-Mobile by that name, or all three (iPhone, Samsung, DoCoMo) generically? I ask because the iPhone version dropped "Mobile" from its name over a year ago*, and that's been their most widely used UA for ages.


* Notes say February 2014. I'd forgotten it was that long.
