I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: Yes

My site's URL (web address) is:

Our sitemap is being managed by GWTS i.e. we have set GWTS to look at /sitemap/sitemap.xml and it has uploaded 3,535,113 pages for indexing.

Yesterday at 1530 it had index 1,713,806 pages and by 0900 this morning it had indexed 1,736,848 which is an increase of 23,042.

At that rate (circa 1,300 an hour, which is down from the 1,600 from two days ago) it will take a further 58 days to fully index the site.

I have turned the crawl rate up to full i.e. 10 requests per second but that seemed to drop the speed from 1600 to 1300 per hour.

Is there anything I can do to get the site fully indexed quicker?

Thanks in advance.
