How long does it take for google to index an article?


Even though an article I published over the weekend is featured and has been crawled, I can't find it anywhere in the search, even if I take text directly from the article and put it in search.

    Yes, I did try putting the URL into google and it still didn't know what it was. I edited a couple of things. I'll give it a couple more days and then check.

    Thanks for this. Some of mine was hitting search engines very quickly but this just seems to be taking longer.

    It wasn't that it wasn't located on the search. Google didn't recognize it at all even if you put the title in the search box. I took GoldenThread's advice and put the URL in webmaster tools and it is now indexed this morning! Yay!
