All of this led me to expect that the number of indexed pages would be greatly expanded after Caffeine was implemented.
By index (technically the SERPs are the index) do you mean show them to people, or by index, do you mean spider them and use them as part of their indexing calculations?
I ask because I think there is a common misunderstanding of their use of the word index, which technically refers to the results not the larger underlying dataset used for computational purposes. Personally, I would think they would want more data to compute from with less but more accurate pages returned in the index (SERPs).
