    To what extend does page-speed affect crawler?


    I'm curious since my website is not always that fast... ;-)

    Does a crawler such as google offer a day/week time slot? Or is there a num pages slot?

    In the first case the page speed heavily affects the number of pages/updates getting indexes while obviously when there is a fixed #pages slot it does not do much.

    I have shared the above image a few times now.
    But the big spikes and the big dips are directly related to the site speed at the time. As you can see when the site is fast google crawl a lot more pages than when its slow so yes it appears google set a maximum of time per site for gathering data.
