Hazywazy,

Changes to a website does trigger a revisit. On my site google and yahoo bots visit daily, msn visits every third day. I took alook of your source code and found this

<meta NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="INDEX, FOLLOW">
<meta NAME="RATING" CONTENT="GENERAL">
<meta name="revisit-after" content="14 Days">


What you are basically telling the bot is to revisit every 14 days. Not a bad thing, when you first submitted on the 15th the bots visisted your site. I wouldn't expect them back for 14 days as per your instructions in your robot text. Now this does not quarantee they will come back in 14 days.


<meta NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="INDEX, FOLLOW">
<meta name="revisit-after" content="14 Days">
<meta NAME="RATING" CONTENT="GENERAL">

This is the way I would layout by bot text, but entirely up to you.pet121
