    Talking Google indexing time shocker

    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to say that I'm amazed at how quickly Google seems to index (some) WordPress blogs.

    In the past, I've made several websites "manually" (i.e., all hand-coded .php and .css files, starting from scratch), and it takes days for Google to notice when I add new content to those sites. But with my latest, WordPress-based sites, new content (posts) appears in the Google index (as discovered using the site: search) within a few hours (certainly the same day)!

    Perhaps it's something to do with this pinging malarkey. In any case, I'm now a bit reluctant to go back to hand-coding sites; WordPress-based sites seem to have a real advantage in this sense.

    That's why I like WordPress. But it has definately a lot to do with the ping services WordPress is using and normal sites aren't

    Pinging really helps a lot IMO.

    Google might have some special algorithms for WordPress blogs/sites

    Some of my Wordpress sites take less than 30 seconds to get crawled and indexed.
