Mirror Mirror on the wall, who caches fastest of them all?

Which search engine caches sites information the quickest?

This is a totally one-off example but a recent relaunch of a site shows that even with site maps in place Yahoo! was the quickest to crawl, index and cache the full information of a site.

Google was second and MSN last. Google did manage to pick up the title tags very quickly but Yahoo! got the entire home page information in less than 36 hours.

So well done Yahoo!, that’s nice indexing!
