Google Indexing My Blog in 30 seconds!

This morning I made a post about Google’s upcoming privacy policy changes.  Google found it and cached it within 30 seconds of posting.  That’s incredible when you think of how many websites and pages they have to keep up with!  Check out the screenshots below that show WordPress’ timestamp on my entry, a screenshot of when I chatted the link to someone so they could read it, and a screenshot of Google’s cache time.

I usually chat my new blog posts to my friends and employees. This image shows when I chatted the link to someone using Google chat.

  1. I noticed a few years ago. Yes It’s amazing. On the other hand. Did you took the time to have a look in your WordPress Backoffice ?
    Settings -> Writing -> Update Services “rpc.pingomatic.com”
    You Blog / Pingomatic is pinging Google that your blog has new content.

    If it looks good to google they is no reason not to take directly into the index 🙂

  2. Yes – I do know about that function. I’ve tested it extensively and on it’s own it doesn’t seem to attract Google that quickly. If I make a post and don’t talk about it anywhere online, Google gets to it in a couple days. If I make some noise, Google comes-a-running.
