Google Indexing Speed

I’ve been noticing this a lot more recently – Google seems to be indexing web pages in near-realtime. I posted a blog entry at about quarter past two on Windows Script Host 5.7, and less than 45 minutes later that post showed in Google’s results for “Windows Script Host 5.7” This is impressive when you consider that in the “old days” Google and other search engines used to index once a month or longer.

And if you’re wondering how I noticed that it had turned up in Google’s index so quick… I have to confess – I’m an Egosurfer and have set up alerts on Google so that I know when my name is mentioned!
