Mixed reactions for Google Caffeine


To say that there’s two sides to the coin would be very clichéd but nonetheless, very succinct when it comes to this post. 😉

Initial reactions to Caffeine, Google’s new search engine technology, is a hodge-podge of positive and uhm – not so postive. Thankfully for the giant company, the positive comments outnumber the negative ones…so far.

In the official Google Webmaster Central Blog, users were asked to give high-level feedback on the differences they can find in the current and new search techs.

One user said he is receiving twice the number of hits for one of his Web sites while another said that there results are more relevant.

Some users shared their liking of the clustered domain names at the top of the page and on the results seeming to be more pertinent with the new search engine.

So what does users want for Google to improve on?

One user said she/he had problems accessing Caffeine in his or her Symbian phone.

Another user found that her searches with Google Caffeine was interpreted by the search engine as spam and received an error message stating that her query “looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application” and therefore, could not be processed.

How about you?
