Google Caffeine – Test Version

Google’s new search version better known as “Caffeine” is now open to the public for testing. Google says that they are interested in feedback but only want feedback on the differences between Google’s current search results and their new system.

“We’re also interested in higher-level feedback (“These types of sites seem to rank better or worse in the new system”) in addition to “This specific site should or shouldn’t rank for this query.” Engineers will be reading the feedback, but we won’t have the cycles to send replies”.

The new version tends to focus on size, indexing speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness and other dimensions. I haven’t had alot of time to test it just yet but the few searches that I did showed some of our pages ranking alot higher then where they rank in the current version so this is good news for us. We are not search engine testers so I will leave that up to the pros in this area. But we wanted to post this for those who may not have heard about the up coming change that will take place on the google search engine.

For those of you who want to test out the new version can do so here: http://www2.sandbox.google.com/ there is also a really cool tool where you can compare the old results vs the new results side by side, this would be the best way to test your results, check out Compare Caffeine for the side by side results.

Some say this is google’s response to the Yahoo and Microsoft deal, rightly said, Google had to make some kind of response so this was a good time to do it. The question is, is the new version really faster? Does it provide more accurate results, and more importantly, will the response be strong enough to for people to stay faithful to google search? Only time will tell, so let’s see how it plays out over the next few months.
