Remember my post with the xrays of my hand, signing the praises of my surgeon (Dr. Keith Raskin)? Well today I realized I didn’t even put his name in the post, and went to go fix it. Then I wondered if he came up first in Google, often doctors are old school and hard to find in search. But in fact, he was there alright. The first result was this. I wondered, as I put his name into Searchblog, how long it’d take for the post to show up? And at what rank will it land?
So the clock is ticking, it’s 9 am EST on the 15th of August…..
Just for fun, here’s the link to a Google search for “Dr Keith Raskin”
Holy shit, in less than 5 minutes, the post is there when you search for dr keith raskin battelle.
Those Google spiders are all over my site.

That is some pretty fast action – I have noticed considerably faster indexing on several sites over the past couple months…
I’d bet you’ll drop a bit after the freshness wears off. As I noted the other day
blog search is very quick lately as well.
The question is: “Is it a keyword/search term”.
Right on, Kameir! Who would search for something they already know about? Answer: White Pages. And once people figure out that they can find ebay at ebay.com, that they can find amazon at amazon.com, etc. then — well, then things will change. I could make some predictions about how they will change, but actually it’s already started (but yes: “it’s only just begun…” 😉 — see e.g. Donnelley: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=74700&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1031378&highlight=
