That could be the most likely possible answer.runawayhorses wrote:Could it be that I used to have my forum open for members only but now it is open to guests to read? I changed it for Guests to read also a bout 1 month ago. I'm thinking that maybe now they are catching up to scanning all the pages because before they wouldn't because the forum was closed to guests. I have thousands of topics and pages, and my forum has been verified by both google and bing.
I'm happy about the bots are scanning the forum, that is the reason I have my site verified by google and bing, I just think 25 hours is a long time and was wondering if anyone else was getting this too.
I can tell you that Google and Bing have done a lot of updates to there sites and as some one else has said this is to put more of your site on the net. As most of you should know by now yahoo and Bing are now one so when Bing comes up on your site that is also yahoo some of us still get yahoo come up on our sites that is down to the update's not changing there logo on all the sites yet.
Most of all if your site has been hid to guests for a long time Google has to find the post that have not been read by them so yes it will take longer to do so.
I know for sure that Google and Bing read the post 3 or 4 times a day and if there is a lot to read it will take forever.
I think you should not Worry about it it's a good thing there coming on your site and the more there come the better as this will keep your site up to date on the world wide web (internet)
Hope this is to some help to you.
As more google or another search engines stay on your site as better. But, it depends of how many pages your forum have. As more forum pages you have as more time crawlers will stay on your forum.
And yes, APE's really right. They read the same pages more times, because if you edited some content from that page google will update & index it.
P.S. pages = all links from your forum, this meant categoryes, forums, topics, who is online page, pages from navbar and other more.
So, you should do your best for keeping google (or another engines) crawlers on your forum. It will help you with improving froum SEO. Also note that, crawlers behave almost like a simple guest. So, if you'll disable acces for guests, crawlers also, will not index your pages that can't see guests.
Hope I was clear.
Be sure, there is no to worry about. This is great.
And thanks to everyone, APE, Sanket, acaelusthorne, for your input..
