I’m kind of surprised this feature exists. I stumbled across this in my twitter feed today. It was written about on SEL yesterday. If you have a URL to submit to Google, head over and search “submit URL to Google” and the box you see below will be displayed.
Before I submitted the URL I checked Google’s cache to see if they’d already found my brand new blog post that was just posted. There was no cache in Google yet. I clicked submit, went and looked at another page for about 10 seconds and thought that I should refresh my cache query. Bam. Page cached. My new blog post was cached within 15 seconds of submitting the request to Google. Awesome.
Now people – be nice. Let’s not break this thing. Spamming is why we can’t have nice things.
