Googlebot Wont Go Home
I have 'Googlebot' crawl my site every day like a dispossessed spirit that can't leave.
It was not always like this, I would go for a month or more before he came to my site and then would only crawl a few pages and leave again.
This has been going on now for two months or more, I've been watching the stats on my server everyday seeing just where he goes. He will crawl a few pages one day, and the next some other pages, and then finally leave until the morrow. After just three or four weeks, I noticed I got an infestation of lesser bots calling as well, some I have never heard of before, they seem to follow 'Googlebot' as though he is the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
What caused this infestation of bots?
Well, I got interested in rss feeds, I thought "What a good tool for drawing traffic to my site."
So I studied up on rss feeds until I understood what was involved. Now I am no 'techie', and the most programming I do is html in 'Notepad', making my own web pages.
Rss feeds use a similar language called xml, so it was easy to understand for me, and I was able to quickly make up an rss feed page in 'Notepad', placed it on my server, downloaded a 'feed reader' software, opened it up, placed the address of my feed in the 'feed reader', and up came my rss feed in the reader. It was so easy I wrote an ebook to tell everyone how to do it, it's called "Really Simple RSS".
There are many rss directories and syndication services that I submitted the address of my rss feed to, so other people can look at the feed in their 'feed reader' and see what articles I am posting.
Some of the 'subscribers' to the feed actually come and visit my site to see what it's all about, which happened almost straight away after I submitted my feed.
In less than 36 hours, 'Googlebot' found my feed!
In a little over two days later Yahoo's 'Slurp' bot found my feed, and from there on they have both been crawling my site with the lesser bots every single day.
They crawl everything, they crawl all my pdf ebooks, they look at a few pages in 'Webmasters Corner', they even look at my 'Bonus Reports', and even descend the staircase into my 'Secret Vault'!
When will they go home and stop prying into my little secrets?
I know I encourage them like leaving cheese for a mouse, by putting more pdf files, software and ebooks on my site every day, so I suppose the poor bots can't ever keep up!
I found out that like mice like cheese, that 'Googlebot' likes my pdf files, he has been fitted with digital spectacles so he is now able to actually read keyword rich pdf files all the way through to the end! So he likes pdf files.
So I have obliged him!
I put 85 pdf files up on my server one night just to keep him happily reading! I have put many more up on the server since, and will continue to create more pdf files of classic authors for free download, just to keep him calling with his 'friends'.
Isn't this a laugh?
It's like taking in a stray dog, feeding him, housing him, and the dog loosing the ability to wander off again and finding you have got a lodger for life.
My site's ranking has risen considerably both in Yahoo and Google, but for some reason that escapes me for the time being, my ranking rose more quickly in Yahoo and they rank it much higher than Google. I may well find the reason for this before long and put it in another article.
So if you are a web site owner struggling to get noticed by the web bots, don't put it off much longer, put up an rss feed with articles about your products or service and not only will 'Googlebot' call with his 'friends', but actual live people will call too.

Not Ranking High Enough on Search Engines? Here's Some Help!
Search engines are frugal things. (Froogle, too, haha! Sorry, lame joke) They take many, many things into consideration when ranking your pages.
Linking for Traffic not Positioning!
With more and more experts and search engine enthusiastsclaiming the right way and the wrong way to handle linkswapping, link exchanging or reciprocal linking! You can tell something is important when there is more thanone name for it! GRIN! There are also two schools of thought on the reasons linkswapping. The first reason for link swapping has always been to carryfavour with Search engine rankings.
Find Best Keywords For Your Site
Keyword optimisation is probably the most important thing that you want to concentrate on with regards to search engine optimisation (SEO). Unfortunately, not many people know this, or do enough to optimise their sites' keywords.
Google Rankings -- Achieve Top 10 Rankings with Free Tools
In order to get a top 10 google ranking it is imperative to not only know how to use the resources that are available to us, but to also know what to do with them. The key is always to find out what tools are the ones to use.
The Search Doesnt End at Your Homepage
In a recent report for a new client, I wrote: "Remember, a visitor's search doesn't end when they leave Google. Their search and the phrases associated with it continue right through to the completion of the task they have in mind.
The Fundamentals of Inbound Links
We have all heard that adding quality content to your web site will give the search engines a good idea of how to index your web site, it's a topic we covered in "Content, Content, Content" back in November 2004. But the secret to luring the search engines to your web site, and in part to improving your position within those listings is your inbound links.
Playing in Googlebots Sandbox with Slurp, Teoma, & MSNbot - Spiders Display Differing Personalities
There has been endless webmaster speculation and worry about the so-called "Google Sandbox" - the indexing time delay for new domain names - rumored to last for at least 45 days from the date of first "discovery" by Googlebot. This recognized listing delay came to be called the "Google Sandbox effect.
Simple Way to Get High Pagerank
Everyone knows that if your website has a high Google Pagerank, you have all chances to reach good search engine positions, to get serious partners, or simply get more money selling text links.But how to get a high Pagerank? (Let's clarify: saying 'high Pagerank', we mean at least PR6)Of course there are many different ways.
Absolute & Relative Links How Do They Rank?
The question for this article is whether or not you should use "absolute url's" or "relative url's"? Not only that, this article researches whether or not Google ranks these methods differently.Absolute: You use the entire url pointing to the designated page.
Boost Your Search Engine Ranking And Generate Free Traffic With Reciprocal Links
Reciprocal links are an important step in your overall plan to get site visitors.What are they? Reciprocal links are mutual links you and some other web site owner agree to post on your respective sites.
Over Optimization and the OOP - Does a Penalty Exist?
If you have questions about whether or not the Over-Optimization Penalty (OOP) exists or not, then you obviously haven't pushed the limits enough with your own website optimization or organic SEO efforts to have experienced the joys of running into the OOP (Over-Optimization Penalty).I'm sure you're probably thinking: "prove it".
SEO Deadly Sins - Mistakes That Hurt Web Page Ranking
The following are a list of mistakes can ensure that your site maintains a low ranking with the search engines. Avoid at all costs.
Submit Your WebSite: Add Your URL to Web Directories & Search Engines
Why get into Search engines and directories?Increase backlinks of your webiste. If your website is listed in Directories then your website can get traffic from directries and search engines counting that backlinks for ranking of your website.
How to REALLY Profit from SEO
I want to give you a few more things to think about as you excel and grow in the craft of search engine marketing. If you are anything like me, you were hooked the first time you really made a difference to someone else's success.
How Real SEO Analysis Works
If you're serious about SEO, you need to know how to analyze the information you uncover.A decade ago, businesses were wondering whether they need to be part of the Internet.
The Need of Popularity
In very simple words, the link popularity of your site means the amount of links coming to you from another sites. Every major search engine heavily weighs the link popularity of sites when ranking sites.
Stay In The Know With Google SMS
The Short Messaging Service (SMS) from Google sends short, quick, text answers in response to your queries from an SMS-enabled mobile device, such as a cell phone. For example, you can look up phone numbers and addresses of local restaurants, do local phone book searches, compare prices from online merchants in Froogle to those you find in local stores, even look up definitions of words from the dictionary.
How to Succeed with the Search Engines
The Cold Hard Facts?..
Google Zombies Need To Wake Up
Over the last couple of weeks, I've received more e-mails in response to my article, "Google's Trap, DMOZ's Nap, And Yahoo!'s Crap," than any other article I've ever written. And that's saying a lot because, I've written close to forty articles.
How and When Should I Submit My Website to Google?
As soon as you register your domain name, submit it to Google! Even if you haven't built your site, or written an copy, or even thought about your content, submit your domain name to Google. In fact, even if you haven't fully articulated your business plan and marketing plan, submit your domain name to Google.
