How long does it take for google to see changes on my website?

11 replies
I have made a lot of changes on my wordpress site about 4 days ago and when I search my keyword on google my site is on page 3 but it still says: just another wordpress site as the tagline...
When will this be changed?

    It all depends on Google's crawl rate for your website. The more often Google sees it changing, the more frequently the googlebot will visit your website.

    The best way to get it re-indexed quickly is to point a few social bookmark links at it. That'll usually get it re-indexed within 24 hours or so.

      Dave's right (above).

      And you get also get Google's spiders over to crawl your page by going over to Pingler.net and submitting your site to get pinged again. Then ping with Ping-o-matic.

      You can see if Google has crawled your site and has updated the changes by searching site:yoururl.com and then click on the "Cached" link next to your site that google displays.

      It will show you the latest image of your site that Google has indexed.

        Agreed - Dave's right.

        In the long run, Tom, the more regularly you update the content, the more regularly Google will learn to index it. This forum seems to be re-indexed every 5 minutes or so: whatever you look at, when it's been posted here, it's already in Google. You can see how continually updated the content is, and that's why it's indexed so quickly.

        I have niche blogs on which I update some sort of stuff at least once a week, and they're almost always re-indexed within 24 hours (usually less), if that "indication" helps. But you have to "establish a pattern" first, I think.

    Yes as Dave states it all depends on when Google go back to your site. You can improve the likelihood of this by pinging your blog and social bookmarking your posts.

    As well as writing a few articles that link back to the post. It will update though so don't worry too much and keep on adding content.

    It all comes down to how quickly you get it indexed. Here is what I do to get any new page indexed in a matter of hours (sometimes a few minutes).

    There is a site (kind of social bookmarking site/ revenue sharing site) called Xomba.com.

    Register a free account and bookmark your new page/site. Google loves this site and constantly crawls it and as a result your page will get indexed really really fast.

    I can post something on my IM blog and it will be indexed within minutes most of the time. As Dave said, it depends on how frequently the spiders craw your site.

    Depends on how well your site is linked across the web. Usually between 1 - 7 days.

    You can look at the last time your site was cached. Do a search of your site and click the "cache" link on the search result.

    It depends on Google crawl rate.Generally Google decides this on many other factors like backlinks and manymore , I think.

    i also agree with this opinion.

    FYI, another quick way to get a page re-indexed is to submit a press release at http://www.prlog.org/. I've never seen a press release take more than an hour to get indexed there. If there's a link to your site from your press release you will get re-cached within 24 hours.
