When Google started, it would update its index only every four months. Around 2000, it started indexing every month in a process called the Google-Dance that took a week to 10 days, producing different results when searching for the same term from different Google data centres. Now, PC World reports, Google has introduced a new web indexing system called Caffeine: it delivers results that are closer to 'live' by analyzing the web in small portions and updating the index on a continuous basis.
