    There are plenty of reasons why you'd want Googlebot to recrawl your website ahead of schedule. Maybe you've cleaned up a malware attack that damaged your organic visibility and want a clean bill of health so rankings recover faster; or maybe you've implemented site-wide canonical tags to eliminate duplicate content and want these updates sorted out quickly; or you want to accelerate indexing for that brand new resources section on your site.

    To force recrawls, SEOs typically use tactics like resubmitting XML sitemaps, or using a free ping service like Seesmic Ping (formerly or Ping-O-Matic to try and coax a crawl, or firing a bunch of social bookmarking links at the site. Trouble is, these tactics are pretty much hit or miss.

    Good news is, there's a better, more reliable way to get Googlebot to recrawl your site ahead of your standard crawl rate, and it's 100 percent Google-endorsed.

    Nice. I did the sitemap thing with the vBulletin move and seem to be doing okay referrer-wise from Google. I don't remember my numbers from pre-XF but I'm sure Google will fully catch up sooner or later.
