It actually occurs to me: I wonder whether anyone at Google might be interested in enhancing it's usefulness as a Python packaging search tool by looking specifically at PyPI's own search index data. (And if they could do that for us, they might be willing to do it for CPAN, RubyGems, npm, CPAN, PEAR, etc)
(on the other hand, being a vector for influencing Google search results would mean being a higher priority target for spam, so we may not actually want that)
I'm not sure, but isn't Google doing this already? At least package updates uploaded to PyPI usually appear in Google searches quite fast (sometimes instantaneously) so I don't think this is only the result of regular crawls.
