I fully agree. For any search that is fed by the latest of the Web, news
services like Yahoo News and Google News should be used. Rather than crawl,
they harvest feeds or are being delivered (push rather than pull) fresh
content that is indexed separately.

For quicker indexing, use XML sitemaps or, more generally, take advantage of
RSS feeds. For the latest of pages (as opposed to news), none of the major
search engines is at the cutting edge. They are catching up though, by
offering new services.
