'c'mon goog, crawl me!

I'm guessing some of you might be privy to the secret of how google schedules its crawls, I'm hoping that once you get crawled you don't have to wait while the whole of the rest of the web has a go before you get your next turn.
I submitted a whacking great sitemap yesterday morning for www.shop.bench.co.uk but no activity yet.
So in a shameless attempt to hijack the fact the this blog is crawled more frequently than every other day I thought I'd use it to speculate about whether or not the bot will follow this link to www.shop.bench.co.uk from which you can, should you choose to do so, buy Bench clothing, e.g. t shirts, online. :-) The last time that site was crawled coincided with the last time I posted a link in this blog, so fingers x'ed.
Oh, and I'll let you know if it did any good... Update Yeah it worked, within less than an hour of this post my blog and www.shop.bench.co.uk were both crawled, thank you big G. :-)
P.S. if *you* want to follow the link please arrange amongst yourselves for at least 1.2% of you to actually buy something, I don't want to be held responsible for lowering conversion rates!
