Google is indexing our posts faster over the last few weeks. I noticed earlier that Google reader is instantly indexing our articles in seconds, and now Googlebot is indexing our articles in a few minutes… are you noticing a similar trend?
Get indexed by Google in Minutes!
To record my observations, I kept searching Google and refreshing for the last article I posted, and truly within 2 minutes it was added in the Google index.
I guess the Google pagerank 6 has a lot to do with faster indexing, however, the site has been PR6 for over a year now (unless you count the PR3 penalty and the PR6 rebound) and I have never witnessed such fast indexing by Google. I guess they are tweaking the Google algorithms and somehow integrating it to get latest links with the Google blogsearch engine which is usually pinged when a blog post goes live.
I checked and other search engines like Yahoo! still have not indexed the post. Also note that in Google Webmaster tools, Googlebot is set at normal crawling speed since the last month (after I had slowed Googlebot down) and is not set on the faster crawling mode (will that mean instant indexing by Google!).
Getting a backlink from a high PR site is a SEO tip often suggested to webmasters for getting a new site indexed by Google within a day. Check how fast Google is indexing your site by pasting the latest article permalink url in Google search. Are you getting Google indexed in minutes?
