I don't know, Google is very fast these days.
For example, I tweeted something yesterday (on Twitter, doh!), and then I
did a Google search on a keyword that was also in my tweet, and it
appeared in the search results. Only 9 seconds later.

And that's not the first time that this has happened for me. I post a
message on a forumm or a mailing list, and a few minutes later I google
for some keywords that were in my message, and my own message appears as
the top result. It's like a snake that bites its own tail. Very
frustrating, sometimes.
