Sitemap Crawling (cont'd)

by Andrew Kagan 30. April 2009 08:59

Following up on yesterday's post about Googlebot and crawlers, I see that Googlebot is coming back to read the sitemap on a regular basis without needing to submit it...probably based on the update-frequency parameter specified in the sitemap...a good thing I hope, although Google is not adding more pages to the index yet.

Registering the sitemap with MSN/Live and Yahoo resulted in immediate crawls by the MSNbot and Slurp crawlers, which of course is a good thing...will see what the indexing rate is in a future post.
