I would be very surprised if there were. I think they only scan their existing databases. It's not particularly accurate anyway. I typed in "rsnak" and it didn't come up with "RSnake" even though I am all over the indicies (55k results).

that's when they use the indices, if goog uses the search queries to suggest something and lots of people turn out to be looking for rsnake it may come up.
Like: myspace worm + google query for rsnake on every page...

Well try it and see. Search for my name a few thousand times across all of the data centers and see if I come up. Should be easy enough to write a quick bot that did that. If a few thousand requests over a short time period doesn't make it work there is only two answers a) that's not how they do it or b) it takes a while to seed that index (batch job).

I ran wget for a couple of hours, don't know if it has anything to do with that, I only used rsnake, not the rest.

Hm... maybe it is that easy. Bizarre. Did you at least use proxies or hit multiple datacenters?

So you can actually use wget to make a lot of traffic for a specific site?

Probably not wget, since that's pretty easy to identify, but yes, some sort of robot.
