Enterprise Search Crawl Not Working

Configured Enterprise Search 2010 accoring to article I found online (http://sharepointgeorge.com/2010/configuring-enterprise-search-sharepoint-2010/).  Great article and was able to get search to work for admin login only.  Delayed issue until I could come back to it.  Deleted service account and service application and tried again.  

Now I am getting error: This item could not be crawled because the repository did not respond within the specified timeout period. Try to crawl the repository at a later time, or increase the timeout value on the Proxy and Timeout page in search administration. You might also want to crawl this repository during off-peak usage times.

Looked online - some users said DisableLoopbackCheck. DONE.  Some users say check all permissions for crawl user. DONE.  Some users say make sure password is correct. DONE.

I am out of ideas and I need Search to work.  Anyone have resolution to this problem?

Is everything in one domain?  Does your crawl account have Read access to all Active Directory objects?

all SP sites are on sharepoint domain.  I followed the permissions directions according to website i mentioned above.  I will double check.  meanwhile, why is AD read access important?

Follow-up: Search was working when I logged in with SP Farm Account.  I had to recreate the Search Service.  Rebooted server.  Followed directions from SharePoint George link above.  I think I missed an IISRESET somewhere because it started working.  I had someone else watch every step, so maybe I missed something on my previous attempts.

This did help in addition to the SharePoint George article.
