Here is your answer, and also a possible explanation for the reduced organic search. I'm not sure exactly how Google processes transitional URL's while the new ones are being re-indexed. The old URL's all function but are 301 permanent redirects. But there may be a small gap or delay due to re-index, it isn't clear. Anyway it looks like it may take about a month for Google to completely re-index everything...

Close to 100%. It's just a time issue. This indicates 80k pages per day, so lets see.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Google does not reindex with the same speed if you change hosting, 301 redirects, etc. A month sounds right, but do not be alert if it takes a bit more. We have been through the same, but content is content and as long you do not have TXT errors all will return to.....New Highs!

agreed. It's maddening at times because you think that Google just forgot you when changes do not occur. Our blog used to index in seconds new articles, then we changed hosting, and it took days, now it's hours.
As you add more and more content, Google will index you faster.
In that regards, BMT will index in minutes once all propagates to the new site.

Did your site speed change with your new hosting? I have found site speed to have a high impact on how often google crawls...

No changes in hosting, it's the same server which we co-lo with Steadfast. Our beta site is twin hardware in same rack, on a separate note.

The speed indicator seems to be a fluke, the site itself hasn't changed. Needs more data.

Load speed matters, yes, but it has nothing to do with crawling in my opinion. Sites that are easy to load will rank higher.

Yes, but I have found Google preferencing how often they crawl and the amount of pages indexed based on load speed. I had a few clients that had really bad load speeds and their indexation was 30%. After cleaning up their code and reducing http request we got their load speed increased and their indexation rose to almost 80%.

Just thinking about this, it could be the post cache which I cleared. Tomorrow I'll look at repopulating the cache forcefully.
