Last month Google announced its new web indexing system Caffeine, which is developed to include fresher search results. The idea behind this new indexing system is to return fresh results against any query whether it’s a news story, a blog or a forum post.
Previously the Google search algorithms primarily focussed on returning relevant and quality search results. But with the new search indexing system caffeine, Google is now capable of delivering results that are relevant as well as fresh.
I randomly picked the first word that came into my mind and tried searching for the same word on Yahoo, Bing and Google. Here is the result:
The top 5 result has a page that was updated 16 minutes ago. Sometimes, I have seen it to be as fresh as 15-16 seconds ago.
Here are the results from other two popular search engines Yahoo and Bing
Result from Bing
Caffeine undoubtedly is enabling us to see fresher results and has been built with future in mind. With lots of content updates flowing in and across the web, with caffeine we are sure to see updated results every time we request for a query in Google.
