    I'm sure (s)he'll get to you. Google always seems to get me early - just after the update - but I've seen others here post few about seeing Google in their site logs just a few days before the dance starts.

    If I had a choice I'd rather be one of the last ones crawled.

    Google be not man nor woman, nor childe, nor beaste, nor plante.

    Google is the ball in a football game and we are the players. American Football, or "real" Football, it makes no matter; it is every bit as exciting.

    Just as we leave cookies and milk for Santa, it is imperative that we leave a few tasty crumbs for googlebot to nibble on.

    Here, google google, have a tasty treat!

    I usually get a burst of activity from the bot when I add pages, and I know I can be enthusiastic when I find the right product or merchant, but 8000 pages :eek:

    Yaeh that threw me for a loop too.

    I hear Mike talking about 600 pages and figure that's what happens over the course of a few years. But 8000? In one month? That just freaked me out. Who builds all those pages? Don't tell me you trained pigeons to do it [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    David Cusimano's AllPosters script can make 8000+ pages in less than an hour! David's got a few other pagemaker scripts, too. It takes longer to upload them at 56k (even with zip files) than it does to make them!

    It is also possible to make lots of pages with very little typing if you know how to use databases. Learning more about DBs is something that's been on my list for a while...

    And yes, it'll take Googlebot quite a while to eat such a large amount of pages. It's normal for him to keep coming back day after day when confronted with huge new sections. When I put my posters section on, it took days for most of it to be spidered. But everything came out okay...

    That's essentially what I do. I write my own scripts in Coldfusion to take the data from the datafeeds, then either upload the database and dynamic page to one of my Coldfusion accounts, or compile them locally to html and upload them to one of my non-Coldfusion account. So it essentially works on the same principle. In either case I'm only typing out a couple of pages for each merchant and the rest create themselves.

    There are some drawbacks. It's not always as easy as it sounds because not all the merchants who have datafeeds know what they are doing as far as good database design and you have to plan for that in the script or you will end up with a lot of bad pages or weird results. It means having a good working knowledge of regular expressions; which is the toughest part of the whole process. Also, there are some feeds that have over a million products, making them tough to work with and they require a powerful computer to process.

    It's also a one-size-must-fit all approach. This is really a quantity vs quality method. I'm not yet convinced that it's any more effective than a few well-written pages of ad-spin for selected products. But I've my reasons for doing it - mainly that I want to fire my PITA web cl*ents and just do the w*rk I want. For me this seemed the quicker way since I am a little more tech-oriented than sales.

    I thought that the scripts were the cat's meow, since it is definitely gratifying to put up so many pages in the time it would take me to make a few high powered ad copy pages.

    So far I find that my use of the allposters.pl script from David is best as adjunct sections themed to a site that primarily markets something else. That way my theme is taken into the poster section as well, and my conversion rate seems much better that way. Also, it's easier to push the framing or mounting for certain shoppers that way.

    My larger sites I seem to have missed something in my templates to get them to really catch niche phrases, and I'm not seeing much conversion so far. Need to tweek.

    I use David's amazon.pl script for my amazon pages, besides the allposters.pl produced pages. I must say, that script is the cat's meow for me. Since it doesn't write to HTML, I must hand finesse a page, and my conversion is great on these pages. With amazon.pl I pull fresh results from Amazon, and using the javascript display that David built into it, presto product links. Took our monthly average from about $100 to about $400 dollars at Amazon by finding niches and being able to put together a hand made optimized page with specific ad copy in a fraction of the time of any other.

    So, I hear you eaglefire. I am still not convinced of the quantity vs. quality method. I'm willing to keep giving it a chance, though!

    If I'm not mistaken, you can compile Dave's scripts to html locally and upload the pages as .html. You need Active Perl locally installed, but the method is essentially the same as what I am doing with using Cold Fusion locally to compile pages to .html for my big Linux account.

    LOL! Yeah, Googlebot does find everything you forget to put in your robots.txt. I recently wrote a log viewer script for one of my NT accounts since all the host provides is LiveStats (ugh!). Imagine my surprise one day when a PR of 3 started showing in my Google toolbar whenever I accessed the page ... (oops).
