Five months, and now caffeine is here.
Google has cut way back on crawling, stopped updating 301s, and is often displaying the wrong URL duplicate content... but they can pile papers 3 miles high.
Wouldn't it be cool to be a near monopoly where you could just spend five months making your product worse and you don't even have to think it could be possible that you would lose market share.
LOL, and now going to check I see that in the past day Google has hurled back into the index tons of obsolete URLs and things that wer duplicates six months ago but are not duplicates now.
How good or bad this change works out years from now, you just don't intentionally do moronic things like this, which means while it might be rolled out, caffeine is seriously screwed up.
