Here’s something that may not be common knowledge to a lot of people: having Google Adsense ads on your page gets you indexed faster. Here’s why:
I made a post the other night about the PHP templating language Smarty. I published it in Movable Type, then viewed the permalink page. I’m quite sure I was the first one to view the permalink page.
The AdSense ads took longer than normal to pop-up — perhaps five full seconds. When they did show up, they were for ColdFusion hosting providers. This fits since I mentioned ColdFusion in several places in the text of the entry.
Getting a benefit from this assumes, of course, that the AdSense subsystem in Google then “hands off” the results of its page processing to the main Google index. But why wouldn’t it?
