Google recently posted an update about its newest crawl stats report. According to the company, the report increased its reporting coverage for additional types of crawls. Users can now get an increased number of crawls reported for your site. There isn’t any direct impact on search itself, it’s just a change to reporting.
Even with this new update, it’s not clear about what “type of crawls” Google is talking about.
Google wrote “The crawl stats report has increased its reporting coverage for additional types of crawls. As a result, you may see a jump in the number of crawls reported for your site. This does not reflect additional crawling of your site, only improved reporting.”
