Expected Behavior

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) crawlers do not adhere to a fixed visitation schedule for websites. The frequency of visits varies widely based on several factors, including the search keywords it ranks for, and how many other websites link to it.


Activity on Your Website

Half of your website's traffic probably comes from artificial agents, and they're becoming more intelligent every day.
