Googlebot Can't Access Your Site1 Recommended Answer
I have had 0% Connection Timeout errors for as long as I can remember. Then, suddenly, on 4/23 I see that Googlebot can't access 6% of my pages (167 of 2,828) and on 4/24 Googlebot can't access 57% of my pages (1,530 of 2,693) because of Connection Timeout errors. Site is on a LAMP stack. No MySQL errors. No Apache errors. I contacted my host (Rackspace) and spent an hour reviewing server logs with a Linux support person. He says everything looks great. The server has low CPU usage and low memory usage. The server has not exceeded max connections in the past three days. The server is up and does not appear to be overloaded. There have been no changes to site content or sitemaps in the past two weeks.
I am left with the question, "What changed?"
