Just had a post indexed by Google in twenty minutes - a record?

    A few weeks ago I put an SEO optimised version of wordpress on a couple of my websites. Tonight, writing about an incident with my chickens and a visiting fox last Thursday I added a post, twenty five minutes later I was in iGoogle checking some statistics and lo and behold the post was there and had been for four minutes.

    Well I was impressed! Now I just have to figure out how to put adsense on the page.

    I have been impressed when I found hubs on google in 24 hours, but this must be approaching a record isn't it?

      Thank you, Ken Devonald, for sharing this useful information.

      It is true that being indexed by Google can take twenty minutes. Sometimes this can take just a few seconds and sometimes it may take up to 72 hours.

      But just try this: Post your hub, write something small on Google’s blogspot with an outbound link back to your hub. Then go to google search and search for your hub. It will be there. This is a sure way to ensure that your hubs are CONSISTENTLY indexed by Google at between five seconds and six hours rather than having to wait for 72 hours.

      Maybe, Mr. Mark Knowles can help you.

    You're about four times slower than the fastest "hey Google found it" report I've ever read.

    But yeah, they do sometimes find things very quickly.
