Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Today, we're announcing the completion of a new web indexing system called Caffeine. Caffeine provides 50 percent fresher results for web searches than our last index, and it's the largest collection of web content we've offered. Whether it's a news story, a blog or a forum post, you can now find links to relevant content much sooner after it is published than was possible ever before.
Am I to infer that this is primarily long tail results and by fresher Google means more recent? If so that's a spammers paradise, content like guides and how to-s don't need to be re-written but are often scraped and regurgitated and worse - mashed up.
Whether it's a news story, a blog or a forum post, you can now find links to relevant content much sooner...What if you manage a regular website (online store, brochure site, non-profit org site...) and NOT a news site, blog or forum? Sounds like the new Google emphasis is on the new ONLY, so I guess you'll have to buy Adwords to rank.
Caffeine is a disaster.... Its as if the SERPS have been nuked.
