    How is it that I can make a post on this Forum, and click submit, and then within 5 seconds open a new window and do a Google search and get my post in the search results? How the heck does Google keep up with stuff on this site (and millions of others) so fast. They can't possibly be scanning everything on every site 24/7, so how do they do it? Must be Magic.... :cool:

    It's been about 10 minutes since your post and I just looked for this thread on google but I cannot find it.:confused:

    I thought it took a couple of days.

    if you upload a video to YouTube, include a link to your site in the description, Google will crawl it within a few hours. That's fast.. considering they can take several months to list a new site, or changes to an existing one.

    Well, it's up now. Those gnomes or monkeys are quick, man. Or maybe magic, like Brad said. :eek:

    Simple.

    Google has an app loaded onto your computer that runs in the background which reports back the mother ship on all URLs you access. :p :D

    The answer is simple: Oompa Loompas. Duh. I'm convinced the Googleplex HQ has an insane server farm and a bunch of Oompa Loompas running it.
