Time to Index?
How long does it take to be found in a SE Database?

 4:14 pm on Jul 20, 2000 (gmt 0)

Is there any good source for finding how long it actually takes for the major search engines to add a site to their database after submission?

I would like some info on:

How long does a page sit in the queue before spidered after submitting?

How long from the time they spider a page until the site would be available to someone searching?

jaz..... you ask a very general question to which there is NO answer.

All engines are different. ALL engines change their indexing constantly. Some spider immediately, and index later, some spider on regular 2-3-4 week intervals, and index later. Some spider on regular intervals and NEVER index you(Google)- you might be indexed or you might not be depending on many things.

There is no correct or exact answer for you.

Thanks for the input ihelpyou

"you ask a very general question to which there is NO answer"

I realize this is a tough question, but I have seen some post what they feel is the answer to my question. WPG software after submiting urls returns their expected time for indexing on various SE's. I've seen other references that suggested times for indexing that were different from WPG's estimates by weeks to months.

Just wondering if there is a reliable source or if it really is just a crap shoot?

yes..... this is why you see many different answers to the question.... there is no answer.

You should not be submitting thru an automated submitter to the major engines. Submit to them by hand or use Brett's "Collective" or use DUMPtruck.

Um.... isn't dump truck the epitome of automated submitters?

I try to only submit by hand. If I have lots of Urls, I will use DT. It does seem to be fine as to the automated programs.
