The only conclusion I can draw from this is that Google uses their registrar status to find and index new sites the minute they're posted the first time.
A more likely conclusion: There are dozens of fairly spammy sites that report new domain name registrations. The spam sites hope to rank well for whatever your domain name is at least temporarily. They are of low value in the food chain but if someone is looking for your domain name online they show up... for a while. It's worse with phone numbers or IP address lists but new domain registrations has become spam fodder too. It is impossible NOT to have your site mentioned online when you register it.
Bing and Yahoo - nothing.
They're crawl and index speed is much slower.
I checked Google's index a couple of days later and VOILA! it's already in the index and Google claims ZERO inbound links
Spammy sites don't count as inbound links, you will rarely see them even in Yahoo! but they are crawled anyway.
just register a new domain! ;)
and pray the spam finds you! :-)
if it doesn't just head over to a site metrics SEO ranking reporting site or three and look up your own domain... that should give you just enough spam power to get on radar. There is value in spam sites afterall... too bad you can't shake them when you're done using them.
