SEO in stackoverflow

I have noticed that when I ask a question on Stack Overflow and I go into Google and search for the question, it comes up in Google in just a minute or so.

How do they do this? I want the secret!

I am a web developer and I know about most things that you can do for SEO, but I have no idea how these questions appear in Google this quickly!

I think it's amazing!

Google prioritises certain websites for near continuous checks (Facebook, Twitter etc). Unfortunately the only secret is to have a very large, highly ranked and useful website before Google cares enough to crawl you more often.

Google will crawl sites that have lots of new content more often than those that don't.

Since SO gets new content all the time, google pretty much crawls it constantly.

Its no secret. Google or any other search bots love new content in a website. I think Jeff wrote a blog post about it. Searching for it. Will post if I find it ;-)
