Update to Google’s Site Indexing Functionality

Rob Young at Search Engine Watch reports on a new feature that Google released that speeds up your ability to have Google index your site. This is especially important in two key scenarios:

  1. If you have time sensitive content you needed indexed.
  2. If you need to clear the cached version of your site.
