Is anyone else getting the same problem from the control freak?
I never, ever expect Google or any other search engine to index my entire new site in less than 3 months. it happens, but I don't expect it.
But to answer your question, a new site that had its first content posted on 12/26 along with its first link, received 3 referrals from Google today. Google has caught up with indexing most of the pages posted before the 28th.
I had another site a year ago with one page after a month, 6 pages after two, and finally a deep crawl at around 3.5 months.
It varies and I don't worry about it.
However some research into the domain (which most other major search engines now have indexed) revealed that it had been registered before with deregisatration about 12 months ago. Guessing that it may be a Google banned domain, I have since registered a replacement (3 days ago) which was promptly indexed by Google.
Nice of the Google to apparently not lift a ban on a deregistered domain, or have a system of checking on such things. Just one reason I call it a control freak, as it gets into a superior market position where everybody relies on it and then acts unconscionably, then conveniently lays the blame for its control fantasies on complicated algorithms.
I am just waiting for the day when someone gets really damaged by this sort of conduct in Australia when I believe that we are likely to see Australian consumer / fair trading laws get tested out.
