A WebmasterWorld thread has two webmasters claiming Bing is getting much faster at indexing new content than in the past. One said, the speed is almost, if not, similar to Google's speed of indexing content.
Google made this big stink about Caffeine and they have every right to. Google is the best not just because of their ranking algorithm, but because of the speed of indexing and displaying indexed content in the search results. For Bing to compete with Google head on, they need to get faster - not just better. Getting faster and keeping quality intact is not easy. Any improvements are noticed and I am glad people are noticing improvements with Bing.
Unfortunately, my tests don't show that, but maybe with some sites, Bing is incredibly fast.
For example, I just posted a new blog entry minutes ago here. Searching for the title shows Google has it already, but Bing does not:
So is Bing indeed getting faster and they just dislike this incredibly useful and highly authoritative web site?
