V7ndotcom Elursrebmem Image Results

Is the new Windows Live image search faster to update? If you enter v7ndotcom elursrebmem (the SEO contest), Google returns 0 images. Yahoo at least has 1. Microsoft’s, on the other hand, shows 8,752 images already.

Of course, this might be coincidental. E.g. it’s possible all 3 image search engines have the same update cycle, and’s update circle just coincided better with this SEO contest. However, Google Images is not known for fast updates. If you remember, a while ago there was a “mini scandal” because people accused Google of deliberately censoring Abu Ghraib torture images – in reality, Google was just so slow to update that they didn’t have these images yet.
