Why a new source is not in Google serps yet pages linking back do?

I have a strange Google situation that I do not understand nor know how to go about fixing. My site deals with computer help and spyware removal. Being very active in the anti-malware community and due to automated tools that submit samples to my site, it's not uncommon for myself or others at the site to find new malware before other companies or sites.

Recently we discovered a new rogue-antispyware application (deceptive scammy program) and did a blog entry about it and a removal guide for it. This blog entry was picked up by quite a few sites all which linked back to the blog entry and the removal guide.

At the time of the writing there were only 2 serp listings for the term and now, a few days later, there 43,000 results for that term. Now what I find confusing is that there are no Goole serps for my removal guide or blog entry, yet 7 out of the first 10 Google entries are summaries of my information with links back to my blog and removal guide. Yahoo and MSN show me as first and I would think since all the other sites are linking back to me Google would think I am the source of the news and therefore the most relevant. At least that was how I assumed Google worked? Maybe I am wrong.

Last but not least, I see that GoogleBot visited the link about 5 minutes after I posted the blog entry.

Does this make sense? The logic does not make sense to me.

Link love to the summary sites have included them and not you.
However, that could change if they are directly linking to you without out the nofollow within the link.

Paste FULL the url of your post directly into the Google search to see if Google has the page/s in the Main or Supplemental index.

If it doesn't show up, this doesn't mean Google has not crawled and capture your page/s data, it just means that it hasn't released it to the Main or Supplemental index.

I often find pages that appear with cached dates that are a few months old, that haven't appeared in the two indexes before.

Once the cached dates update, the page/s then have a chance to rank on a search.

Is your software from your site also sold on Amazon or Ebay?

I'm finding many scraper sites using software to grab all bid items and keeping up to the minute on the auction and also scraping all new items from Ebay and these sites are really taking over in Gooogle results. Guess what? The sites I'm finding have adsense all over.
