Here is the scenario: 10 year old authority site; almost 600 backlinks; very good pagerank and serps for popular words.

I am afraid that because my pages are so long that I am missing the boat regarding getting all of my content spidered.

Currently the page is getting crawled by normal rate.

When I saw the "time spent downloading a page" I became concerned.

Number of pages crawled per day
Maximum 6
Average 2

Number of kilobytes downloaded per day
Maximum 387
Average 96
Minimum 0

Time spent downloading a page (in milliseconds)
Maximum 3511
Average 375
Minimum 0

Do I have a problem? Is it a non-issue - I am thinking that all of the pages will get spidered just that it will take a montnh f or a complete crawl as opposed to 12 days. Please help me :)

Time downloading - the average of 375 ms looks OK.

Look at the graph, have you just got one or two days that spike high?

If so, then that's not really an issue.

If it is most days (and it obviously isn't, from the average) then there is a problem.
