i just ran a check and my site had a lrage number of time outs.

Is this a cause for concern?

ok 79 URLs 9.50%
timeout 720 URLs 86.54%
skip type 33 URLs 3.97%

Total 832 URLs 100.00%

i have a php /mysql site with htaccess rules that make the urls se friendly

If the crawl happened to occur during a once-in-a-lifetime event that had your server down/overloaded for a while, it shouldn't be a problem. If your server is frequently unavailable to Google (or users), then yes, it is certainly cause for concern!

Yes.

Either you have a connection or browser problem yourself.

OR

Your site is not as user friendly as you think

or

You have server problems.

could that mean that each time google tries to map my site, a lot of pages go missing.

my reply was edited- i ran a tool on the site that was recommeneded elsewhere on this same forum to check for dead links. does that tool reflect the same thing google's bot does.

What do you mean exactly by "timed out"?

You should check your logs and see what responses Googlebot gets. That's far more reliable than relying on third party analysis tools
