I barely missed Florida
Well that was a really bad day, but a positive experience in the long run. Lots of lessons learned particularly on the "google organic traffic over reliance" front. I often wonder how many of the top notch pay per clickers of today were born from that maelstrom. Anyhow, more relevant to the point of this thread, lots of complaining around here about the fits Google is having trying to get Caffeine rolled out; starting, stopping, roll outs and roll backs. Clearly their struggling a bit to get this right.
Florida taught everyone lessons, especially Google and your seeing that now. I would rather have the delays, false starts and general Google plex disinformation on whats going on than experience the debacle Florida was. I really believe they had no clear understanding what was going to happen when they launched that.
