The Next Google — Caffeine!

Google’s Matt Cutts recently disclosed their “secret project”, behind-the-scenes updates to Google search which is now testing the next-generation architecture of web search. They call it “Caffeine.”

Though nothing is yet available for testing because of “system maintenance,” Cutts the update of this magnitude hasn’t yet happened for many years. “The new infrastructure sits ‘under the hood’ of Google’s search engine, which means that most users won’t notice a difference in search results.” The new architecture is said to include size, indexing, speed, accuracy and ranking changes and Google is asking searchers to give the pre-beta release a try it and report their feedback. The pre-beta is available at http://www2.sandbox.google.com although you can test the old Google against the new for yourselves at http://www.comparecaffeine.com.

Mashable.com calls the new update “lightning fast.” Their conclusion was that Caffeine is very fast and it often doubled the speed of the old Google, it relies more on keywords and it places “more reliance on keyword strings to produce better results”.
