Word out of the Google Blog camp yesterday finally brings us word that the all-mighty Google Caffeine update, which has been in the works for almost a year, is finally live. Now live across all data centers, Google proclaim of the completion of it’s algorithm update:
“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.”
Claiming “Caffeine” was created with the future in mind. Google proclaims that it allows the major search engine to index larger amounts of relevant information more quickly and that it is a new foundation to build upon in the future. Google says it will make searching better and faster.
What I have seen over the past couple of months since it has been mostly live here in the US is that searches return more relevant websites quicker and with less spammy sites than before. Because I tend to focus on building back links through a more organic, social means, I found most of my websites that I am doing SEO for climb to the first page of results on Google now. Many of my most valuable and competitive keywords are now #1.
Kudos to Google for a job well done.
