The BBC have an interview with Mr Cutts:
[news.bbc.co.uk...]

Nothing new or astounding, more of a summary.

"You are not going to see Google dances."

"Now we crawl a percentage of the web everyday," he says, "so after a relatively small time frame we hit every page."

Also, says Mr Cutts, there are quite a few Googlers, as staff are called, that keep an eye on its web index and make sure it is accurate.

Where are they looking? I dont think they are very good at that job or they are off playing hockey.

This is more like PR of the non green type. Good BBC write up. Nice positive spin.

Perhaps I am a cynic.

"The model of having a lot of machines and have them fail is a very powerful one," says Mr Cutts. "You have a small team replacing hard drives and it never affects the index."

Interesting find jpjones although most of it is "old news".

Mr Cutts is one of a team at Google who help webmasters and website creators tweak their pages to ensure they are properly indexed by the search engine.

Maybe I could receive some extra help ;)

But ironically, says Mr Cutts, he does not have an extensive personal web presence that can take advantage of this insider knowledge.

Good!

Some of them must have taken their eyes off the ball recently!

Is that what that refers to though? It almost sounds like SEO services.

That's a lot of words for saying nothing. :)

I read at the end of the article: "In some respects, running the search system is just a preparation for everything else Google wants to do."

OK, I'm glad the Webmaster community finally obtained the official communication from Google about no more dances and the beginning of a concurrent update.

Eventhough we knew about the end of the dances and new concurrent updates, we weren't certain of the start of the new system.

With datacenters upgraded to the new concurrent system, ODP data and hardware upgraded, I'm looking forward to tomorrow's SERPs.

So I'll forget about the stress of the last weeks and months and instead, I'll set my sight on tomorrow.

Google can't jump unto other endeavors if it doesn't get its search system working fairly.

I wish well to Google.

I have noticed that the gbot comes every day and randomly spiders pages. Maybe 3 times a month it will hit them all or most of them. We have thousands of pages. Any page with backlinks gets hits every day.

Yep it's world domination alright. Still it is nice to get confirmation about a few of these things.

I wonder how he defines extensive.

You really believe that?

If so, then he has succeeded in his primary aim.
