Well, it’s nearly a month old.
The new web indexing system is called Caffeine. Caffeine provides 50 percent fresher results for web searches than Google’s last index, and it’s the largest collection of web content that the search engine company has ever offered.
The new index seems to be a much more dynamic system compared to the old one, which had several layers.
“Caffeine takes up nearly 100 million gigabytes of storage in one database and adds new information at a rate of hundreds of thousands of gigabytes per day.”
