How many pages is your site? If it's big enough, Googlebot can take a while to crawl.
Also check which bot. If you're running AdSense the mediapartner bot will hit your site pretty often - daily in some cases.
If neither of those are true, look over the requests. Make sure you've not accidently sent the bot into a loop. I've seen a server brought to its knees like this...Eathan Mertz

no we are not running any kind of adsense, or the likes,
the site has about 60 pages.
though we do have around 650 links running in and out.
does that make a difference ?

One of my sites as 1400 pages & about 75,000 outbound links and google was going bonkers for a while trying all of the outbound links until I banned it in robots.txt. If your links go out through a masking script, maybe that's what's happening?
Google does usually hit my sites every day though, but not always crawling deep.Tim

I think Google has a problem lately. I'm not sure what it is exactly, but it started on December 17th. Lots of quality sites have dropped in the SERPs, and some speculate that Google has a corrupt database. Not sure how that could be, since they do backups on backups on backups, but things have been pretty strange in the Google SERPs lately.
One of my sites has been hit by this phenomenon, and I'm seeing daily Gbot activity on it, sometimes really ripping through it. Seems like it may be trying to respider a lot of pages quickly, for some reason.
Whatever it is, I wish Google would get it fixed.
So, I would say almost anything is normal for Google right now. What was considered the norm in the past just doesn't seem to apply any longer.
