    Google Bot Going Deep Via Sitemap
    I'm posting this observation here as stats people might be interested.

    I have reworked a site and am seeing the G Bot hit pages 4 levels down with out hitting the pages above. It appears that they are really using my site map and getting the pages that I want. This is the first time that I've noticed the behavior. If this is really happening then it's a good reason to have a current sitemap.

    Good point John. I think Google wants, and rightly so, to index deep content in order to enhance their own users experiences. In helping them do their "job", I think we are rewarded.
