Over the last few days, developers and eCommerce professionals have noticed that the crawl rates for Shopify websites are significantly lower than average. Users have expressed their thoughts on the same by tweeting to John Muller, to which he replied that there were some technical difficulties calculating the crawl rates. Nevertheless, these issues were not particular to Shopify websites only. Such technical glitches are perfectly normal. The drop rate in the crawl rate is temporary, and it automatically catches up a few days later on. There’s nothing that can be changed or done by the engineers at Google. The search engine understands that low crawl rates can be troublesome for your website. It’s recommended that you keep track of Google Search Console to know more about the crawl stats.
