While making a search of some names on Google engine, their membership and posts on javaranch saloon were also shown. However, for some recent members, google didi not pick up the names in the search engine. Can anyone tell why?

Have patience. Google is a slow site. Someone I saw has fifty gmails and is trying to get rid of them.

Note that Google lists pages only if/when it finds other pages which link to them. So newer users may not have posted anything yet which others have linked to. Or maybe they have, but Google hasn't found it yet.

It is noticed that in Google selectivity is random. You may find pages in Yahoo and Altavista and not in Google, and vice versa. However, it is still the most comprehensive search engine for general searches.

The link up between google type search engines and the servers of ranch and the types is on flaoting points and would normally show results after a few days.
