Hi,

By curiosity ( :"> ) , on the Google Search console ( Crawl > Crawl Stats), how long does it take for GoogleBot to download your pages?

For my site (a forum, so all pages are dynamically generated), stats are :
High: 290 ms
Average: 190 ms
Low: 125 ms

I don't know if GoogleBot operates exclusively from the USA, my site is hosted in Canada.

edit: after posting, I realized that in fact, most of you manage plenty of sites, so my question doesn't really make sense in that case. So it's more for those with a "main" site, like me :">

High 222
Average 76
Low 48

I never put much weight on these stats because it doesn't give enough data: What files? What day? What time? From what geolocation?

I have some extremely large files for download. Is Googlebot including these? Is Googlebot crawling during peak hours or at 3am?

I'm with ^

Some of these stats are just a bit nutty nerdy. In reality who cares how long it takes G to crawl a page when the real number is how long does it take to SERVE a page to a USER?

Yes, you are both right, sorry for the silliness of the question.

@Peter_S ... there are no silly questions, only silly answers.

In this uncertain world of g (as that is the world most of us live in) there's many questions. And we do try. Answering that is. Sometimes right, sometimes wrong, but all of us in the same boat trying to get from here to there.

Always ask. Never hurts!
