Expedited Indexing For New Content: Google Recommends PubSubHubbub Still

Google has been recommending for years and years to use RSS feeds and PubSubHubbub to help Google index new content quickly, in addition to using XML Sitemaps.

Truth is, I am a bit surprised they still recommend it but they do.

John Mueller from Google said on Twitter, "RSS + PubSubHubbub & Search Console submission of the feed will get it indexed quickly too."

He said this in response to a question about indexing was asked on Twitter:

So it can't hurt to support it being that Google has been recommending it for at least 3-4 years, probably longer, and it still is recommended.
