Can I request that Google re-spider a site, because some information has
changed? How?

how about...
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...spider+refresh

which leads to (on the 1st results page)
http://answers.google.com/answers/th...id/204332.html
http://www.ditii.com/2007/07/19/goog...-walk-through/
http://forums.searchenginewatch.com/...hp/t-4347.html

or...
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...e+spider+index

which results in even more, slightly different, results

Yes, I have a Google site map, and it's been many days since it's been
spidered. :-(

Um, John, I do know how to put words into a search engine. I was looking for
advice from a human who knows how it should be done.

If the site is already spidered and properly indexed, Mr. Googlebot
should come around every few days to say "Hello" without invitation.
In my own stats he appears almost every day, looking for something.

But just because a page is spidered again doesn't mean that it will
appear immediately in the search index. This may take some more days.

Isn't there a button or link in the webmaster tools to tell the bot that
something was changed and he should come around ASAP? I think I've seen
that some while ago, but have never used it.

Thanks Michael, I'll have a look.

Patty,

I have an account with Google webmaster tools etc etc

It allows me to update sitemaps etc etc.

If I change the site - I can delete my existing sitemap and submit a
new one. It is normally scanned within a few hours, and then the site
respidered within a day or so.

http://www.google.co.uk/intl/en/webmasters/
Ok - I have all of that too. I was hoping for something a little simpler
than re-creating the site map - I'll look under webmaster tools. Thanks, I
appreciate the help!

Hi Patty,

You probably have this in your sitemap, but for those interested I think it
helps to include a frequency line.
Of course, in the "maybe it does, maybe it doesn't" world of search engines,
the increased bot visits may be due to something else entirely :-)

<url>
<loc>http:// your URL</loc>
<lastmod>2008-07-11T00:39:25+00:00</lastmod>
<changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
<priority>.90</priority>
</url>

Variables for freq: always (dynamic content that changes on every page
load), hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, never

Take care,
Tim

By the way, WA has a new extension - Surveyor - that does very nice Google
sitemaps, as well as submitting them, and then reminding you that you need
to revise them!

I rather thought you would have that already. :-)

I haven't found a way to persuade Google to spider a particular page /
set of pages but as Tim says - I ensure that the more important pages
have <changefreq>daily
or weekly depending on how important they are

I find google visits some pages almost every day
