Google Indexed in 16 Minutes
Been reading about the so-called lightning fast Google search indexes lately but never really encountered one myself. Google Search Quality Team lead Matt Cutts also discussed how they’ve dramatically improved on the incremental search indexing front and even documented a search index for just under an hour.
Now, here’s one for the record — 16 minutes from publishing to getting indexed.
I wrote an entry earlier this morning about Apple iLife and Google AdSense. I did a search query for the exact title of the post just now and it showed me this:
I am using a Time Since plugin so the page does not show when it was published but how long it has been published from the time you view it.
The screenshot from the search index shows “posted: 16 minutes ago“. So far, that the fastest record from time of publishing to indexing by Google.
