A. Where are you getting this school of thought from?
I hope not from me. As I've tried to explain, "launched" and "live" have to be DEFINED to even have a fruitful discussion.
Sorry, but "My Daddy said so" doesn't work as an explanation in politics, religion, NOR something as mathematically precise as SEO.
I've already clarified MY DEFINITION. (even given precise dates and other datasets)
Until someone else clarifies theirs, I'm simply going to assume they've done neither the research nor analysis to give an informed opinion, that i've openly done since August.
B.) Again, what's the definition? What dataset if ever LIVE 100% of the time (or announced "officially" by Google)
By this definition, NO datasets has been LIVE since Florida.
Seriously, does any critical thought go into
why 100s of OTHER SEO saw "Caffeine"-like datasets on Tuesday and Wednesday which then suddenly disappeared when G was "officially" questioned on it?
Where are those datasets NOW?
If they weren't "Caffeine" datasets, What the bleep were they?
Where's THAT explanation?!
BUT, BUT, BUT, "Daddy said so...!" Ugh!
Geez, do i "know" who she is too? lol
Let's call her Guru A, for future reference
"Mommy says so" when I don't feel like explaining....
(lol sorry to drag you into this, Donna.)
