Armed with these tools I published the post, pinged Feedburner, Feedburner pinged Google and I sat back, waited a few seconds and started refreshing Google Blog Search to see how long it would take to get indexed. This is the cool part, the blog post was indexed in Google in about a minute. I don’t know exactly how long but it was less than a minute. Pretty cool, huh?

I like the testing and and timing approach. Yep, Google feed search is fast! http://sphinn.com/story/651 covers a related story from Lee at Online Marketing Blog: http://www.toprankblog.com/2007/07/indexed-by-google/ It talks generally about seeing how material hitting blog or feed search then flows quickly into regular results.

Yup! It’s nuts how fast Google is getting these days. I’m waiting for the day when its indexing and displaying SERPs in realtime.

Pretty close to editable SERPs. And faster than Infoseek IIRC.

For some years now (since 2004), I’ve found that when I publish new articles to my blogs (which ping a number of services), search engines appear pretty quickly. I didn’t time this through Google Blog Search, but articles I wrote yesterday are listed today. This is great, except when you’re first installing a blog; in particular, WordPress upon install has a generic first post (something along the lines of "This is your first post. Edit it or delete it."). Still, that may not be as fast as pinging Google’s API. Say, Danny: is there any chance of making the Comment box a little taller? That would make it easier to see what one has already typed.

Wow that’s fast. How will Mahalo, InfoCream, ChaCha and the like keep up with that? Only with b12 and extra expresso.

"I’m waiting for the day when its indexing and displaying SERPs in realtime." Nah - I want Google to tell me what I’m going to write, before I write it...

Yup, worked for me too - 210 seconds. I guess I’m not as important as SOME folks out there.

Yeah, we’re getting pretty fast. I like the minty freshness. :)

Watch the rankings of pages you link from turbo-indexed posts, yesterday I got Matt to #1 in Web search for my (somewhat unique) anchor text in no time.
