Google Caffeine – What It Is and How It Works

Google caffeine is now live on Google’s servers. It is an entirely new web indexing system and is claimed to be the largest collection of web content Google has offered. Google declared the new system completed on June 8, 2010; it is beneficial to both searchers and websites in terms of availability of content “within seconds after it’s crawled.”

Earlier Indexing Pattern – Delay in Availability of Information

As the new search index, Caffeine empowers Google all the more, making it stay ahead in the field of search engine technology. Google has radically changed its method of indexing with Google Caffeine. Earlier, the entire web used to be analyzed. But doing that wasn’t easy; hence the updating of the main layer could be carried out only every two weeks. There was some delay between finding a page and making it available for search engine ranking. So when users entered a search phrase, they searched the web index that would not have contained current entries since it wasn’t possible to update it every single day.

Google Caffeine – Featuring a Radical Change in the Indexing Pattern

With Caffeine, users can access content that has been published relatively recently, even a few hours or minutes before. Caffeine now enables Google to examine the web in parts rather than checking the entire web as was the case with the older index. Examining in parts enables Google to find new websites, new pages and new content on existing pages continuously and update them to the search rankings as and when they are found. Millions of pages are processed every second!

Users can now trust their search results to be up-to-date and most relevant as well, thanks to localized search. It sends a clear message to businesses – frequent updating of web pages, blogs, Twitter and Facebook pages as well as press releases is what will help them stay on top of the Google search rankings.
