It seems like I've seen this discussed several times, but the only thread I find right off is this one: [webmasterworld.com...]
In essence, many people believe that Google automatically crawls new blogs on wordpress.com and blogger, even without inbound links. My experience is that eventually Google finds you via your whois info. Now that Google is a registrar, they usually swing by to see if there's something on the domain within a few days in my experience.
