I add the new pages (sort of 'what's new') to my index page and they are almost picked up within 4-5 hours. 28 minutes is the earliest I have caught :)
Matt Cutts said that if CNN links to you, within seconds we will pick it up, so link it from a trusted page and it's done.
Happens all the time - I just searched for the title of this thread and the first result reads:

Blogs seem to be getting fast crawling for the Minty Fresh index, regardless of their underlying strength. All it seems to take is hooking up to Feedburner.
Thanks for the replies. I think I understand it now.
Cheers for the help.
Having the XML-RPC Ping Services enabled on your blog usually results in google listing your updates within hours, or minutes if it is a news or busy blog.
See explanation here: [codex.wordpress.org...]
if you install the googlemap script from Google will do the same for non-blog sites
Minutes seems normal for my site.
I already see this for about 6 months.
Google maps forcing a ping, this is new to me.
Could it be that the script you refer to is Google SITE map script?
Thanks - Rhys
This is what I use for a few years and I remember getting it from Google Code. You need a url list in text format and then you can run this in many ways, for example I use webmin and run it as a command. Lately G get picked them up in as little as one minute after pinging. To be sure, you might want to add a "What's new" section in your homepage so Google sees the articles.
@Walkman thanks for the clue I think I can apply this system to my non blogs
