    Google Re-Index?

    Is there any way to get Google to re-spider a website?

    We've just completely changed ours but all the Google links are pointing to the old one e.g.

    redbridge institute contact - Google Search

    The first result has the sub links but they're all wrong

    Speeking of Google...

    I friend of mine brought this up a little while back, have they invented a time machine without telling anyone?

    Case in point - Search for anything, at random, however complex the query, how quick does it come back with the result? 0.17sec? 789,000,000 results in 0.17 sec! And not just for me but for the millions of people who all pushed the search button at the same time as me.

    I put it to you that google cache your query, travel back in time, run the query and then display the result so that to you it looks like it too only 0.17 sec?

    If you don't believe me try it for yourself. Think of the most complex google query imaginable. You'll get millions of results in a time impossible to search through that many records!

    When you see how big Googles data-centres are, you'll soon understand why its so fast.

    800 million results for say half a million people, thats what 400,000,000,000,000 results in 0.17sec, every 0.17sec. Of course logically they have a very powerful cluster setup and it's not impossible - but still, if 1 million people hit search at the same time and all got 800 million results then that figure doubles to 800,000,000,000,000 result in 0.17sec. I tell you time travel, they've invented it and kept it quiet! (or quantum computing and kept it quiet).

    Google have 41 datacentres spanning the globe, the likelyhood of all those users hitting the same datacentre is unlikely.

    Added your query, surely if everyone asks for the same information the search query is cached, thus the same information comes back.

    They spent $2.7billion in 2007 alone on Data Centers, they mean business, serious business. Their main US datacenter is fed via hydro-power as its consumption completly drains its local grid.
