Super Fast One Hour or Less Google Indexing
Posted on 5th October, 2007
After I published my previous post, I noticed from my user’s online page Googlebot came munching the content almost immediately.
If you Google the term “latest google pagerank update Sabahan” you will notice that the post appears first on the list, but that’s besides my point.
When I did the search at 9:30PM, I noticed the post was indexed 7 hours ago as shown in the screenshot below. That’s about an hour after I published the post at 1:30PM. It appears that now it takes Google about an hour or less to index my post.
While I’m not certain whether a blog’s PageRank and update frequency have any influence over the Google indexing speed, I tend to think they do and this shouldn’t be confined to blogs alone. Can you imagine the potential traffic you could drive to you blog if you are the first to break an important story?
Have you experienced the same effect in your blog? If you haven’t, I suggest you create a sitemap for your blog and see what happens.
