Quick Google

December 7th, 2009 at 7:00 am by David Farrar

must have its bots hovering constantly. Last night I blogged something, then thought I’d seek more info on the topic so googled it. My own blog post came up as a hit, less than 60 seconds after I had made it.

    Nah: it is just that the CIA watches DPF, and as their tool Google automatically reflects this interest :-)

    Comes with your blog’s PR6 – not so fast for lower PR sites.

    I guess that they subscribe to your RSS feed. Makes a lot of sense – they get notification as soon as you post.

    Neither does it work for hackergate, which is a more accurate description.

    Maybe it’s just that they aren’t real words, they are just scandal of the month constructs.

    Just use Bing, Microsoft are part of the other conspiracy.

    Pete,
    looking more like a whistle blower every day. Be interesting what the UK Police find. Keep on with the “Nothing to see here, move on” though.

    What’s the dirt looking like from below today Pete George?

    Pray tell, with your head that deep in the sand all day, which orifice do they use to give you your dose of leftist propaganda?

    Ahh….thought so.

    Rod is correct. It’s the PR 6 rating.

    I have a PR6 site that get crawled and indexed within seconds, too, and lower PR sites that take longer.

    Last year (or the year before) their PageRank algorithm was computed every hour or so. This means that once someone posted a new document on the net it would appear on Google search after an hour or so. I am not sure how often the PageRank is computed these days, but I am sure that it must be every half hour or even less, so searches can appear sooner, once the document is put on the net. It is not the bot that makes the search results appear sooner on the net, but the PageRank computation (ie, how often) itself, then after that, web pages are ranked and available for searches. Of course, bots are there to capture new documents, but capturing them instantly, doesn’t mean that they will appear in Google searches instantly, since PageRank must run first in order to rank pages.

    I am not aware, if Google had developed an on-line version of PageRank or not, but I wouldn’t surprised if they had done that already. PageRank is an off-line (batch) computation algorithm, ie, everytime the PageRank computation is run, everything thing (old data plus recently arrived data collected by bots) is recomputed again. This makes it compute intensive and also slow to index web pages. If it is on-line, then only the newly arrived data is computed (ie, almost real-time), which then update the old result (old data plus old rankings), and this makes it fast.

    They also have a recency algorithm, which applies mostly to news pages.

    That’s why you’ll see near instant indexing, and the pages drop away, in terms of rank, a few days later.

    Actually most blogging software is configured to “ping” google (and a few other sites) when a post is made. The fact that Google deems your site important (high pagerank) probably means that they act on it immediately, where for lesser sites it’s probably queued.

    PageRank is irrelevant now – it was removed from the Google Webmaster Dashboard a couple of months back. The three major factors in having a search term feature on page one of Google (about 40% of searchers will click on the first result), are inbound relative links, relevant content on the site and timeliness (i.e. frequent addition to relevant site content).
