    How fast is google?


    OK I have been out of the SEO game for a little while and im since back google seems to be responding slower than before.

    Is this the case or is just perception and lack of patience that developes after a year off?

    Its taken over a week for google to index anythign of a new site thats juts gone live, and its only indexed the new hompage. Registering new xml siteamps, removal requests for old pages and signicant new links inclduing deeper links havent helped yet (3 days).

    Am I just being impatient or should I be looking for a problem?

    Getting in-links to a new site will decrease indexing time.

    However, SEO is still half work and half patience. You may have gotten used to a faster paced life since you've been gone.

    Even pages on low pagerank sites seem to be cached at least once a week, or at max every two weeks. High PR stuff is daily or multiple times per day.

    I did not notice any slowing down in indexing and caching. My own content get indexed and cached quite immediately (between 9 seconds and 30 minutes), each time I publish a new post.

    I haven't seen a slowdown either. I have started some new websites recently and all are doing well.

    It always feels kind of slow, but i think ive noticed that adding or updating frequently crawled directory listings helps, and forum and blog comments . Could just be my imagination though. Comments?

    Hey Noj.... Welcome back.

    Google is moderately slow or moderately fast... Take your pick. Not like the old days, but you have to calculate in that the Internet is now HUGE. Google still out shines the others as to speed and relevance. A bit more patience is required today.

    Lightbulb Indexing at Google


    I say that the makers of Google algorithms would be able to tell you why your new pages are not indexed yet. They would tell you that your site is not at the quality required to have fast indexing. They'd say that your site first needs to build trust with your url. The kind of trust that comes with proving that your indexed pages are useful to users of Google search engine.

    I think it has nothing to do with Google about the slowdown. The thing is in your site on what are you doing about your site and how you do some methods on speeding up your site in Google algorithm.

    An interesting footnote here,

    On three words terms we are seeing a serious over performance and shooting in top 10 for terma which imho we should of been arrive 20 -30 for.

    On two words terms we seriously under performing and are arrving at 90 and sub 100 for terms I would expect to been pitchin up 50 - 60 for.

    I would surmize from these results that Google has a false distinction between two and three words terms, and this is brought into the mix with age and link history of the site (this was a poorly linked 2 year old site not ranking top 500 for any term bar brand).

    Either that or I dont know what I'm doing
