  • <FONT size=2>

    Refering to this forum (http://www.arcon5.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=161), how is it a thread was indexed so quickly but when I used to run a website it took about 10-12 days to even update my Page Title?

    I dont understand. I no longer run a website, but have been reading alot about optimising websites, and I know it takes time, but how can my website eer acheive such quick results?

    Im hoping to setup another website soon once i have time, ive been looking around ebay and seen a few interesting ones.

    Any1 know much about this area of optimisation that can assist me ?


  • You're at the mercy of the search engine.  I think this particular guy just "got lucky" - he probably posted just before the Google spider indexed his site, so it appeared immediately.  In general it could take anywhere from a day or two up to a couple weeks, depending upon the search engine and their spider algorithm.

  • But you can optimize by writing clean code.
