Why Google is Crawling very high from last few days
I recently noticed that last few days myÂ companiesÂ Â site is crawling very high by Google. This lead to a failure of our systems in the week end for few minutes. Â TheÂ increaseÂ of Google crawl traffic wasÂ unprecedentÂ and went up to 4 times of the normall rate. Before it was 1 to 2 lac URL per day .The sameÂ increasedÂ to almost 8Lac per day now.
I checked with some of my friends in the SEO industry and came to know that thisÂ phenomenaÂ Â is common forÂ almostÂ all the sites. What is the reason behind this sudden surge of the crawl rate by Google.
The one reason i came to know is that Google isÂ competingÂ with Bing. Bing had changed some of its settings andÂ increasedÂ crawl rate on every site because of lack of content in the BingÂ SearchÂ engine. Â So Google as well as changed and want to update contents from every site.
