"It visits websites that change frequently, according to how frequently they change."
To me this sentence is very confusing. How about something like:
"It visits websites that change frequently, starting with the most frequently changed pages."

the german external link is broken
Warning: GoogleBot will try to index FTP sites too - especially if there's a HTML link to an FTP resource. It is said that in FTP mode, it will respect a "/robots.txt" file, but such a resource is only defined for web servers. Server admins be warned.... 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:43, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

GoogleBot and IFramesEdit
There are discussions inquiring about how GoogleBots handle IFrames.
I've been told that IFrames cause errors in the Bots 'readings', but I've read (from uncertain sources) that the Bots are fine with IFrames. Does anyone have compelling evidence as to one or the other?

I'm thinking of adding a sub topic Indexing Limits, to googlebot are there any references or research done by any good webmasters and also I guess there should be a relation between the indexing and the Google Pagerank. If there are any, kindly refer the same.Ganesh J. Acharya 06:06, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
How often does Googlebot update?Edit
I've been curious to know how often Googlebot caches a website and once caches does it later on update previous versions. I ask this because I've found a few websites with personal information cached on older versions of the page, yet the most recent is without said information. Some people worry that their info will be made public and curiosity has me wondering how often Googlebot updates a cached page. Thanks 22.214.171.124 17:41, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
I was browsing the net on the ole' Google.com search engine when I found a peculiar message stating: "Your IP is: 126.96.36.199" Obviously, this was not my IP. Of course, I had to look up the possessor of this IP; thus, I used Network-tools.com. From here, I simply copy and pasted the IP and voila! I had found the IP to a GoogleBot.
The following message was presented as the entire web domain and sub-domain (host name):
IP address: 188.8.131.52 Host name: crawl-66-249-73-186.googlebot.com 184.108.40.206 is from United States(US) in region North America
I performed a WHOIS trace for further investigation:
Domain Name: GOOGLEBOT.COM Registrar: MARKMONITOR INC. Whois Server: whois.markmonitor.com Referral URL: http://www.markmonitor.com Name Server: NS1.GOOGLE.COM Name Server: NS2.GOOGLE.COM Name Server: NS3.GOOGLE.COM Name Server: NS4.GOOGLE.COM Status: clientDeleteProhibited Status: clientTransferProhibited Status: clientUpdateProhibited Updated Date: 06-nov-2006 Creation Date: 21-oct-1998 Expiration Date: 20-oct-2011
--It was quite strange to find on MarkMonitor.com's "Strategic Alliances" page they had not listed Google.
