New image indexed in only 2 hrs - and showing in Universal Search

 7:44 pm on Nov 18, 2011 (gmt 0)

Today I noticed for the first time, that a new indexed image is shown in the images Onebox of the Google serps (universal serach). This is extremly fast.
I found it when searching for the actual Google Doodle "Louis Daguerre".
If you switch to google images I see 20 (!) new indexed pictures in the Top 35. Amazing - I call this "freshness" :-)

That is fast. It looks like the new freshness algorithm has a long reach!

I think images work on a completely different system, from the bottom up. You know how they keep double-checking redirects and 404's for years and years? With images, they seem much more prepared to take your word for it. They've rarely asked for the same (re)moved image more than once, and almost never more than twice. (I know because I'm currently tracking redirects in order to whittle away at the huge sector of htaccess that is purely for the benefit of robots. Sigh.)

We know this because a picture is worth a 1,000 words... and that would be 1,000 less the SEs have to deal with. :)
