    google stopped crawling: can be a dns issue?


    Hi all,

    I have a PR 5 website and or about a year, and the homepage used to be crawled every 1-3 days. For about 10 days, google stopped crawling the homepage and put an older cache (a cache about a month old).

    a link to search in Google returns 127 links. And there are many links (about 1000) that are PR 3 and lower. Also, i checked the PR5 sites that link to my site and their homepages are being crawled regularly. So I don't understand why my site is not being crawled.

    Anyone experiencing such a thing? May it be a spam penalty? I have no spam like activity on my site, but I'm not sure about. I have text navigation which are optmized, and also SEO is applied in all pages but a *clean* SEO. What may be the case?

    The only change i have made is purchasing a DNS service from another company and adjusting nameservers accordingly. May it be the case? MAybe Google cannot reach my site and crawl it. How can i make sure that Google is able to reach my site to crawl?

    Any idea/help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time in advance.

    if it's too early for some visitors to reach the site normally (because of DNS problems), the same may be the case with google. apart from that I don't see how it'd prevent google from crawling and indexing you.

    I purchased dns hosting from my registrar, which means the DNS server for the domain and the web server are totally different machines. Even though I can telnet to the web server by using the ip number, i cannot by using the domain name. This is the reason why I suspect the fact that googlebot does not crawl my domain might have something to do with the new dns settings.

    [to disgust]
    The domain is accessible through internet explorer at all (our number of visitors is the same, so i don't think anybody has difficulty in reaching it)

    Thanks for your ideas.
