Thoughts please on my analysis and how to determine if this is indeed a change in the way Google is handling smaller blogs that don’t meet a certain "authority score"

Just curious, are you pinging Google Blog Search when you post?

I’d ping both Google blogsearch as well as weblogs.

Hi DannyYes, as I said, I have been pinging Google no bother for six months.Instant into blog search, minutes into the Web index. Now, nothing....Quite a significant change from what I was used to.....

@Hobo Tested a site over the weekend after your last post. Minty fresh within minutes but results were checked in organic search and not blog search. 10 year old site.

I think the answer is throw some links at it Shaun to speed up the indexing - minty freshness ain’t that minted.

Paul - Do you see who’s been linking to me recently? I don’t think that’s the answer at all.

As I asked on the blog, I noticed a change, but only after my hosting company insisted I add the WP-Cache Plugin to my blog. Anyone else notice this?
