As I mentioned a few days ago, some people are seeing some DNS/URL timeout issues show up in the Google Webmaster Tools, where it seems Googlebot is having some problems crawling some of our homepages and other site pages. Susan Moskwa promised to check it out on the 10th, but she's made no further post since then. The last post in that thread was on the 11th by a user. Surely it doesn't take more than a couple of days to track down a DNS error? I'm not trying to be bitchy, but I am interested in seeing an answer. I'd post in the Google Groups thread itself, but for some reason my posts in that thread always error out, but that's a whole separate issue.
If anyone has heard anything about a resolution for the Googlebot DNS/URL timeout problem, please share.
