There’s a lot of forum chatter about Big Daddy crawling issues.
I’m not going to link to any of the debates, especially one I spotted in a leading SEO forum which, in my humble opinion, contained nothing but utter b**shit. No, I’m not going to mention it.
I guess my point is: “be careful what we believe”. If there’s something odd happening, it’s amazing the conclusions some so-called SEO experts jump to, and the speed with which they do it. Before you know it, mere conjecture becomes undisputed fact, and it’s no wonder most people don’t have a clue how to rank in Google any more.
Personally, I believe in testing. And reading research papers (pick out the pieces of data a huge search engine could actually process in a cost-effective manner). And not reading seo forums (much)
