    Is there any information on time frame for how often Google will crawl an updated XML export file?
    We're working on a cron job for updating the XML export file and are looking for some information on how often we should run it.

    A scheduled weekly cron job of the XML Google Scholar export file would be ideal, because Google crawls the server about once a week, to the best of our knowledge.
