What happens is Google will run the update on a particular day, letís say on the 4th of the month. Then Google will slowly push out that impact over 10 days or so throughout the month.
OK, how about some help for a liberal-arts type: What's the difference between "running the update" and "pushing out the impact" of the update?
Does "running the update" mean propagating the new software to the data centers, and does "pushing out the impact" meaning using that new software to digest (and, presumably, score or otherwise manipulate) data from pages that Googlebot has crawled since the last update?
