Google Caffeine: does it change something?

leave a comment »

Google recently announced the completion of a new web indexing system called Caffeine. According to Google, Caffeine will provide 50 percent fresher results for web searches than the company’s previous index. Also, users can now find links to relevant content much sooner after it is published than was possible before.

Google reportedly opted for a new search indexing system because content on the web is expanding significantly. It is growing not just in size and numbers but with the advent of video, images, news and real-time updates, the average webpage is richer and more complex.

In addition, people’s expectations for search are higher than they used to be. Searchers want to find the latest relevant content and publishers expect to be found the instant they publish.
