The clock is ticking to see how long it takes hittail.typepad.com to get into Google. But first comes the blog search tools, such as Technorati and Google BlogSearch. In setting up TypePad, I turned on Technorati tags, and the pinging of both major blog ping servers, Weblog and blo.gs. My flurry of HitTail quote posts got picked up by Technorati moments after I “claimed” my blog at Technorati. Google BlogSearch wasn’t so fast. But is HAS picked up one of the posts so far. And that’s quite important. That blog DIDN’T EXIST before this morning.
And remember that these blog pings are the modern day equivalent of search engine submits from yesteryear. So, I’m confident that this is the first step of this blog’s journey into Google default search results. I think it might be measured in days.
The answer to how long it takes a new site to get into the blog search engines is hours, if not minutes.
