A thread at WebmasterWorld named 8 days to list new pages - impressive! got me thinking. The thread was started by WebmasterWorld moderator Caine, who wrote;
MSN took exactly eight days to list a new set off pages i banged out last saturday, and i will keep a track of whether they crawl and update this quick with other sections that i released on Tuesday and on Friday. Thought G would be first hands down - but they haven't budged - i'm impressed MSN.
In response to that, WebmasterWorld, MSN Forum moderator, Receptional wrote;
Yes, but isn't there a downside for this speed Caine (other than people moaning about bandwidth?) - the downside being that it is much easier to also spam the index - at least in the short term? Now - that's good for you ;) but is it good for them? :)
Hmmm.... I see it all the time in all the forums. MSN Rocks, We love MSN. It loves my sites! I am the most relevant. Yada yada. But who is really winning?
