Hi, thanks for your fast reply.
The errors in Google sitemaps are:
General HTTP error: HTTP 403 error (Forbidden)
We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.... it then goes on to say:
The server is refusing the request. If you see that Googlebot received this status code when trying to crawl valid pages of your site (you can see this on the Web crawl page under Diagnostics in Google Webmaster Tools), it's possible that your server or host is blocking Googlebot's access.
HTTP errors /4xx error:
"Likely reasons for this error are that the webserver didn't understand or couldn't process the request, the request was forbidden, or the request timed out. If the page has moved and requests for it return a status code of 410, you might consider changing the response to return a status code of 301 and permanently redirect the request."
Its very suspicious they complained about my CPU usage etc then shortly after my hits from google die off and I get this reported in sitemaps
Yeah, I have told Google to behave and wait a few seconds between hits, but Google isnt coming anymore
