    Site slow down - SE spiders

    Something I've noticed tonight while sat here doing a last minute post, this site makes a lot of DB calls on every page is really slowing it down whenever a search engine spider decides to run its eyes over every topic.

    If nothing else it would be well worth researching ways to reduce the amount of data a SE spider sees to the bare minimum thus reducing the load times on the site and improving response times. It wouldn't hurt the sites page-ranking either

    There are mods for this in phpBB2 and I'd guess that even this ported version has a mod somewhere that would help.

    Just something to bear in mind..

    Hi

    The slow down not really down to the spiders as we looked at it before slow down due to hosts.

    As for page-rank to be honest we don't need to worry too much as every public page in the site ends up in google.

    Main thing is we are working on getting rid of cms which sorts issue out as you said cpg makes heck of lot sql calls.

    Russ.
