Strange Indexing by Google

I know that it usually takes weeks/months to build traffic to a site but I put the blog on a old domain that still had a pagerank of 2. I am hoping by doing this it might help my rankings faster. The blog has been up for a little over a week now I figured that it is possible it might have seen some visits. Checking this was a simple matter as I had installed Google analytics the day I put up the blog to help track traffic (which I highly recommend to anyone). To my disappointment it doesn’t look like any real traffic besides me has been visiting the site (There were a handful of direct referrals from sites who linked to my old site, but I don’t consider these significant as the visitors were probably looking for something else).


So, if I have not yet received any traffic the site has probably not been re-indexed. To check this I did a quick search for “infobrink” on Google and I noticed something very strange. The first search engine result was the old version of my homepage (which was expected if the site had not yet been re-indexed), but right below it was one of my newer blog sub-pages that I had recently created. To me this seems awfully strange cause the only way Google could know about that sub page would be via crawling my homepage (I am fairly confident nobody has linked to my new subpages yet). If google was crawling my homepage and updated the index with my subpages why not update the index with the new homepage also? Hum..very strange…
