How often does Google Index.

 9:16 am on Aug 29, 2000 (gmt 0)

Hello all,

I tried to search for this topic but I wasn't able to find
a clear answer.

I was wondering if anyone had a rough idea of how often
Google update it's index and how soon does google bot visit after you have submited a page.

Thanks in advance for everyones comments.

Update times vary a great deal at Google. They go through these huge crawls and reindexes. Other times they slowly update. Lately it is running about 30days from submission to the time you can find your self in searches. However, they are going through some changes right now and I expect them to do something new very shortly.

It appears that a reindex has taken place very recently. Yesterday I did a search on my topic and found 219,000 results and today I ran the same search and found google report "around 308,000 sites". Rankings were also shuffled a bit between the original 219,000 and the 308,000, but they seem to have settled down now. I guess I caught them reindexing at that particular moment. BTW, I am 11 hours ahead of the east coast and so I tend to spot these changes when most of you are sleeping.

>found 219,000 results and today I ran the same search and found google report "around 308,000 sites".

I agree that many new sites have been added, but the fall from 2,100,000 to 1,190,000 for link:www.yahoo.com/ troubles me somewhat.

Any thoughts?

That may be due to the ink. links dropping out.
I could be wrong but that may be a small part of that

I doubt yahoo lost a million links in a month :)

Looking closer, I can see they have done a weed of some type on the database. Almost all the the major keyword results (top 100) are off 10% in link numbers compared to July 5-15 spiderings.

Aren't those numbers... 2,***,*** and 1,190,000
the number of pages in the yahoo dir. ?

What i mean is when you do a link:yahoo.com you get
the number of yahoo dir. pages that are in google.

Or am I just way off topic here?
