    I have a 120-page site that only gets about 10 page crawls a day.

    That feels kinda low.

    Anyone have experience in this area?

    Thanks!

    Is it a new website? New websites aren't crawled that much because then people would start abusing that. The only think that can help you is a lot of backlinks. That way bots get referred a lot to your website through backlinks and then your crawl rate will improve.

    Make sure your sitemap is dialed in and check crawl rate in WMT. Then keep adding content / building links & social signals.

    1: Submit your sitemap on Google
    2: Use cache plugin
    3: submit your site on alltop.com
    4: create few good backlinks to make your domain powerful

    That's it.

    It's helping me for fast indexing.

    Go into GWT and "crawl as google". You can request 120 crawls easily. New sites gotta suffer you know.

    It is a similar issue on new sites, use unique and user engaging content to get it crawled soon.Use the GWT to crawl the links, but don't use it often.

    I doubt your content is not that good, which is backing up Google to crawl your site more often.Though more content is good way to increase Google crawl there are other ways tohttp://johnnybaskin.com/what-is-google-crawler/increase the crawl rate and I think you should try applying other tricks also
