Google’s Indexing DelayLeave a Reply
I created a new blog about Mordheim on the 10th of November. I worked on the design of the blog for about a day, and then linked to it for the first time on the 11th. I linked to it from a couple different sites: Websites in a Flash on the 11th, my Website Design Blog on the 17th, and Board Game Geek on the 17th.
By adding this new blog to my Google Webmaster Tools account, I could tell that Google Accessed my new blog on the 11th of November, 11 days ago. I have checked my site in Google’s Index everyday for the last week, and yesterday, the 21st, I got my first click through from organic search results. Today, I have 5 pages in the Google index; the same five pages that were my only pages on the 12th of November (Home Page, About the Author and the entries for the 10th, 11th and 12th).
From this, it seems that it takes 10 days from the time that the Google-bot sees your page/site till the time that it gets entered into Google’s search index.
I’ll keep my eye on how Google reacts to my blog, and will keep you posted.
Update: This blog shows up at #23 for the keyword term “Mordheim”
