    What modules do you use to get the thread posts to show up so quickly on Google searches!

    I am totally amazed at how fast Google updates it's search engine for hottoforge.org.

    I've seen my own posts show up when Googling for solutions as quickly as a minute!

    Google does the indexing on its own. The only thing we do is submitting a sitemap once a day.

    Google & Sitemap

    I thought sitemaps only needed to be sent to Google when the overall layout of the site changed.

    Thanks for the info.

    Google must have figured out there is a lot of activity on How To Forge and Google likes such things!

    For google this is a high quality site with lots of original content so the spider indexes stuff a lot more often than on other sites. Same goes fore news sites... as they constantly add stuff, they also get indexed a lot more :)
