Jessica, it's my understanding that different search engines have different
requirements. Some ask you to manually update (essentially you're
re-registering the pages), and some update the pages automatically - after
awhile. I don't think that any of the search engine updates are fast these
days (except perhaps for some of the least used engines).

You can usually get this information on the search engine's home page - they
typically have a link that leads to a "registering" page where you can get
the info you need.
