Hi all

I am conducting an experiment which involves trying to force the re-indexing of an edited image from a post back in march 2010.
The image is located on a third party blog (without Google Webmaster Tools) on the wordpress.com platform.

If I wanted to speed up the rate at which this old page and in fact the image was crawled, and therefore re-indexed), how would you suggest I do that?

I have thought about new links, visits to page, clicks on webpage search results etc...
What's my best shot?

I would imagine a new link from more authoritative site may help with page recrawl. If the image is physically located on the third party domain (not hotlinked) then this *should* help.

That method works. I'm often use such way but with backlinks, not with images.

You can't submit a url for a site you don't own but you can create a link on a page you do own and fetch it as googlebot. Check the box marked 'crawl this page and all links on it' or something like that. Google will fetch the page and any page leading from it. They allow 10 such searches per month.

I suggest you try the link i posted. It submits 3rd party sites/pages directly to Google just fine. I use it regularly. You do need a Google account however.

^ best way if time sensitive and you just gotta do it NOW. Otherwise, just wait. g's mission is to crawl the web---and they do. That said (grins) it doesn't mean their crawl will be available in the next 10 seconds, minutes, hours, days, or even weeks. (Though we are usually talking hours/days).
