More Google Caffeine Speculation : Is It Almost Live?

Let me start off by saying this is speculation, Google has not (I repeat, NOT) confirmed this. A WebmasterWorld thread has renewed reports that Caffeine, Google's new index, is going live really soon.

Since yesterday, dozens of webmasters in the thread have been swearing that they see the new Caffeine results in Google.com. Yes, it is possible that they are hitting the single data center that has the Caffeine index but some are saying they are hitting multiple data centers and they all have Caffeine.

Here is one of the many reports:

I am seeing caffeine on all the proxies I watch. A few hours ago it was caffeine on the east coast proxies and non caffeine on the west cost. Now they are all showing caffeine. As louieramos said, let's keep our fingers crossed.

Can this be the launch of Google Caffeine? I don't know. I'd say wait until you see a blog post at one of the Google Blogs. But we did report last month that Caffeine will be launching in the upcoming months. But at the same time, we expected it to launch after last holiday season.

So right now there are rumors from a forum thread that Caffeine is going live. Google has not confirmed that this is indeed happening. So no need to panic.

There is an old saying: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

Heh heh! Matt Cutts said on his blog (March 16, 2010) that Caffeine is STILL on only one data center. Ain't no one recognizing the Caffeine thing. They're all walking in their pajamas.

Changing the google algorithm is a huge step. I think it will be many months before releasing it , im sure google will put years of testing into this , not just pull it out the bag and fire it into production. Like the author says i wouldnt worry until google announce it , hopefully worry isnt the word.
