Well I am giving a rough estimate.

Some claim here that indexing is within 24 hours but doubt that because the I/O of information
is so great that that's the reason you see search engines not allowing the submit process
every once in a while. THis insures that the vast database is the same across
the many servers. But I always like people to prove me wrong.

When they don't then they tend to erase a message like this one.
I have delt with support issues with missing data on a database that
span across several servers. Most of the time it is because the agents
sometimes do not run at a specified time or that the agents have programming bugs.

But anyway when it comes to search engines yes you are right I have seen it take
very long sometimes.

I am still figuring what technologies are used together to store/retrieve database information on Altavista.


>You're joking right? They haven't updated in 6 months! Altavista updated almost every sunday night.
