    if you haven't heard yet, google is majorly updating how its search works --- caffeine is just the code name they are using

    it hasn't been launched officially but it can be downloaded for beta

    anyways -- it appears that

    1- it is faster
    2- brings back more relevant info
    3- will re-sort the results, which may affect people/seo and ultimately money

    what is your opinion

    Someone else posted on this earlier. My take?

    1. It is faster. I'm so happy I only have to wait .12 of a second rather than .24 of a second for my search results.

    2. It does bring back more info. I'm so happy to wade through 3,453,003 pages rather than 2,738,835.

    3. Yes. Those who neglected keyword density in their content may suffer.

    It'll all come around and change once again! Hakuna matata!

    thanks for reply - I missed other post

    I think it will be very interesting

    what I understand is that twitter posts are coming in to some searches which is new

    this should have all the scam-gurus running around for awhile --- it kinda makes me happy tongue

      LOL! I know what you mean. I've checked my sites and they all seem to be fine. Not so sure I'm happy about having Twitter results being returned so quickly -- or at all.

    Well, one of by hubs that is position 7 with a search term that supposedly gets a thousand searches per day will no longer be even in the top 50, but Google is lying out their ass about 1000 searches per day, so I guess it won't affect me...

    If it somehow managed to actually reward quality content over manipulative crap to get on page one, I'd think it was great even if I never got another page view again.

    I'm sure Hub Pages will benefit. Google only gets better at identifying quality content, so if you are posting good quality hubs, you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
