Does +Google Drive take a while to update the search index?

I edited some old files with comment to make it easier to search later, e.g. one comment at the top of a bunch of files might say "burger recipes" and another "Barnacles!" but when I search Drive for those terms, I find nothing.

It is just because the new content is not yet indexed in my Drive search?

OMG what has +Google AdSense done to the reports? Cannot view earnings by website? Makes it a bit tricky to know how much each website has earned.... is there a secret hidden report somewhere?

Introduction
I was raised in rural Essex, close to Chelmsford, and not much happened in the first 18 years of my life. 

In 1992 I headed off to Preston to learn Astrophysics ..... in 1993 I went to Coventry where I studied Geography. This was much nicer to study, less maths and more research and writing. I spent one year working at  the Forestry Commission's Alice Holt Research Station in Farnham.

In 1997 I graduated and decided to head to the big smoke where I spent 12 years working in the investment banking and global custody industry. I worked for Lloyds, RBS, Nomura, Henderson and BNP Paribas. 

A 2009 a company restructure saw my job move to Scotland; I was made redundant in July. I decided to take the plunge and started working for myself. My initial plan was to be a web designer while building up my content website. However, the content sites grew quicker than anticipated so I focused more time on these for a while. 

I became a content specialist and suddenly found my writing work to be in demand so started writing for some web marketing agencies. After doing this for around a year I decided to start my own writing business and Wade's Words was formed.

I love my work. I spend my days researching new articles and stories - doing the things that I enjoy for the first time since I left University in 1997!

My ambition? To write something good. I mean, really good. Something that I can be proud to tell everybody about, although ideally everybody will already know about it ... stay tuned. One step towards this goal was to do a Writing Fiction course. Writing factual articles comes pretty easy - fiction is the real challenge.
Bragging rights
I work for myself and enjoy my work.

Been here a few times now and it always pleases. Fondest memories are the mini cottage pies for starters and the lamb. Nice atmosphere, a quiet and relaxed place with good food and drinks.

Went there for the first time in January 2014 and very impressed. First time in years I had my teeth cleaned and shined without any pain too. Five star service.

A very tranquil cemetery that is well maintained. Perfect place for some quiet reflection and remembrance.

Great martial arts club. Both my kids do karate here and they both absolutely love it. Friendly teachers, well equipped, clean and with changing rooms. Plenty of parking too.

Excellent venue for kids parties and hosts social and fitness clubs too. I am not a member but have used it on several occasions and it is always welcoming.

Have been going to Weymouth for my summer hols for several years now and we always visit the Spice Ship. In fact, after my last trip I found seven receipts in my wallet. Good food, good sized portions, good beer, good rear garden with play area for kids. Friendly staff.
