GoogleBot Crawling From Different Locations At Same Time

Aug 24, 2010 - 8:47 am 3 by

The obsessed SEOs at WebmasterWorld have noticed that for the first time in watching how GoogleBot (Google's search crawler) spiders their sites, they are now crawling from a few different IP addresses at the same time.

Long time WebmasterWorld members said this is the first time they have seen GoogleBot crawl their site at the same time from multiple IPs. Several have noticed GoogleBots crawling from three different IPs at the same time. One member said:

We had lots of crawler activity today on a newer site, google hit the site from 3 different ip addresses throughout the day. Hoping it's a good sign, never seen them use different ip addresses in the same day before.

Another senior member added:

Yea they went berzerk on our big site last thursday and friday. their fast activity notified me so I took a peek to see who was scraping the site... I've never seen Google spider so fast and from so many IP addresses, they were all valid Google ip's but there was like 10-20 of them running at once.

Have you noticed this behavior?
