Google Reader Is Great But…

It takes far too long to update feeds.
On average it’s taking about 1 to 2 hours for a new post to show up in Google Reader. When I was using Netvibes it never took more than 10 minutes.
After reading some similar complaints on the Google Reader discussion forum it would appear that Google polls feeds once every hour or so, but some people are waiting upwards of 8 hours for posts to appear.
I’m surprised Google hasn’t implemented some sort of ping functionality like Technorati has. If Technorati can have my latest post listed in under 20 minutes surely Google can do the same. Maybe I expect too much from them.
It’s just frustrating to know I could be getting my information quicker by visiting a website. It might be time to try out Bloglines.
