Google Webmaster Tools Crawl Stats

August 25, 2009

Switching from a WordPress subdomain to my own domain has proved to be much more expensive than the $10 annual domain mapping fee I pay WordPress.

I went from having hundreds of visitors daily to less than one hundred visitors a day.

Being in the business of traffic generation primarily through Google Adwords pay per click, the drop in “orgnanic” traffic proved to be quite frustrating.

I installed Google Webmaster Tools on this blog and verified the site as directed.

Several months passed and nothing changed.

I then decided to submit a reconsideration request which in turn got my domain mapping WordPress redirect resolved.

Yet, SearchMarketingCommunications.com continued to languish in Google’s search results barely registering 200 of my nearly 600 pages.

Yesterday,  I spent some time in my Google Webmaster Tools account and today I noticed my “Crawl Stats” jumped significantly from their average page crawl rate.

I am hoping this new average page crawl high will soon lead to a greater presence of my web site’s pages within Google’s search engine results pages.

Time will tell and so will my Google Webmaster Tools dashboard.
