Getting spidered is one thing. Appearing in the indices across all
datacentres is another. While you could lower the latency on the former
(e.g. XML site maps, pinging services), you could rarely ever affect the
latter factor. The only exception I can think of are news services. That is
why, whenever I seek a piece of information that was published a few days
ago, I use Google/Yahoo News without hesitance.
