    Got crawled by google a lot but..
    Got like 40s-60s megs daily crawled by the Google bots, yet how come Google barely send traffic ?

    The last time Google was the top traffic sender was back in Feb 04, and after that it dramatically reduced. Now Yahoo tops the list followed by MSN.

    Anyone experiencing the same thing ?

    read that hijacking thread. Heavy crawling is often a sign of hijacked websites.

    Why would that be? If google was taking the redirect site as the correct one (which I doubt), why would it scan the other one? And what proof do you have this is a sympton? And that this even happens.

    Before you jump in on every thread with this "theory", I suggest you pick the thread you started and back up your claims.

    I would say the most likely cause are a)recent scans do not mean you are instantly in the main index, it still takes a bit. b)you don't have content people are searching for or your content is not presented in a manner that allows google to decipher what are the correct keywords for the pages (according to you).

    I had that (massive crawling without much human traffic) going on with one of my sites for a long time.

    Strangely, when I updated a big part of it, the g-bot crawling of the updated sections slowed a lot and now some real hits are coming! So maybe it's just desperately hoping to find something new... *shrugs*

    Whether that's what it was looking for or not, it's going to find a lot of new stuff since I usually do a thorough update of all my sites at the beginning of a new year. "Out with the old and in with the new" and all that!

    I noticed (on my DMOZ clone website) that if Googlebot is crawling heavily but it finds duplicate content you won't show up in results.
