Google New Search Engine ‘Caffeine’ Approaches its Release

November 10, 2009

U.S. (ChattahBox) – Google is getting ready to release their new Google Caffeine, and Google fans are eager to test it out.

The release has been heavily anticipated over the last several months, ever since the project was sent out as a beta to a number of developers in August.

Now, the preview page has been removed, and a small announcement has been replaced. It thanks those developers for testing out Caffeine, and states that the first release will be going out to one of their many data centers in the next few weeks.

Caffeine is a new version of their popular search engine, which allows for a shorter time between content publishing, and search results. It also filters more effectively, and provides for a better ranking system.

“For the last several months, a large team of Googlers has been working on a secret project: a next-generation architecture for Google’s web search. It’s the first step in a process that will let us push the envelope on size, indexing speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness and other dimensions,” Google’s Matt Cutts said.

“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. But web developers and power searchers might notice a few differences, so we’re opening up a web developer preview to collect feedback.”

The new search engine is likely due to Google’s nerves over Bing, Microsoft’s search engine made to target results more directly. Their ad campaign is openly scornful of Google, as well as the other, smaller search engines on the net.
