I installed WordPress last night, and added a link for the blog to my main page about an hour ago. Already I’m seeing requests from blog syndication services – wow! Various user agents that I’ve spotted: Blogslive, topicblogs, BlogSearch, Technoratibot, and Feedster Crawler. I have no idea how they found it so quick!
Update: I figured out that WordPress (the blog software I am using) automatically sends an update notification out when updating a story. That’s how they are all finding it. Ah well, still cool!
