I am seeing something on the Caffeine datacenter that I have not really seen too often.
One way in which we have identified when were were looking at the Caffeine dataset on the Caffeine datacenter or on Google.com is by looking at the number of competitive sites that show up for a search.
Usually, the Caffeine dataset has a smaller number than the regular dataset.
Now, I am seeing more competitive websites than I am used to seeing for searches that I do on Google.com and also on the Caffeine datacenter but now the Caffeine dataset seems to have a lot more competitive sites for a search (sometimes 10 million more) than when I do the same search on Google.com.
Could this be because Caffeine is adding more datasets to its index and when Caffeine is rolled out the number of competitive sites that show up for a search will be more than what we now see on Google.com when it is showing the regular dataset?
