I monitor about 14 sites daily. About two months ago I noticed that
Google crawled the web sites much less frequently, from every second
day to every second week. This happened at about the same time as I
started bi-weekly Google SiteMaps refreshes. So, I figured the change
in crawling frequency was affected by how often I refreshed the Google
SiteMaps on the servers. Google seemed to pick up every page, every
image, everything I gave it.
Suddenly, an ancient web site that I had been trying to resurrect over
the past year sprang back into life. Keyphrases began appearing in top
results; their improvent and presence sustained.
Where are all those powerful mega-paged competitors gone? I thought
that surely they had only stepped out of their throned positions for
but a brief moment. No. They seem to have been evicted permanently,
much to my chagrin.
