Topic: How often does google bots update their index? (Read 805 times) previous topic - next topic


I'm amazed at the speed. I just posted something on siftables and googled it with a combination of arduino in like 20 minutes and google throws up the same post back!
Be The Change...




I remember back in the early days of search engines, google would often take several days to index new content, now its usually a few minutes.

The average for most of my sites is about once a week.  Active sites, such as blogs and forums get scanned a lot more frequently.  Also there are several site sending live feeds to google so they are searchable instantly.  Some examples are facebook and twitter

Well there seems to permenantly be a googlebot patrolling this site so I suppose it only takes it a few minutes to read the post and get the search updated.

You can google "site:whatever.foo" then in the tools on the left you can select latest - it'll show you the most recent posts it has indexed the forum at the domain you've just googled.

It's frequent for pages with rapidly changing content.
