Now before I tell you the answer that made me drop my jaw to the floor, let me give you a tad bit of history.
Just a few months ago during a weekend event, I made a bet with my mother.
I told her it would take less than an hour for my new blog posting to show up in Google.
I was sweating - it took 58 minutes.
You see, I get a sweet little Google Alert every time 1 Choice 4 Your Store is mentioned. It's a nice way to do your reputation management as well as learn when Google picks up your new pages.
So yesterday I created a new post New Webinar - Create a Holiday Twitter Background.
I published this post at 4:09 PM.
I received my email alert from Google.... 8 MINUTES later!!!
Take a look at the Google alert. It is marked at 4:17pm
I sat there in shock for quite some time. I mean come on... really? Can Google really pick up that blog post in 8 MINUTES!!
So then I thought, well surely it is just in the blogs area. There is no way it is in the main search.
I was wrong.
That was the only word I could come up with. 8 minutes to reach the web.
Then I started looking closer.
If you take a look at the image above, it is marked with the time of 4:27 PM and it states that the page was from 16 minutes ago.
Which means Google came and grabbed that page after 2 MINUTES!!
So how long did it take Google to index our new post?
Want to know our secret sauce for getting Google to index us in 2 minutes flat?
Well my friends... I will give you that recipe tomorrow in Part 2 of How Long Did it Take Google to Index Our New Post :)
