The August 2001 Google Update Has Begun
www2 is showing the beginnings of a new index

 5:44 am on Aug 20, 2001 (gmt 0)

I'm starting to see the dance! Anyone else noticed anything?

Its funny, though. www3 is showing more results for my search term than either wwww or www2, but www2 has more links to my domain.

Overall, it's looking better, however the all important index page has created a problem, it was listing #2 for one keyphrase and now slipped to #3, due to a slight change, which has also made it rise with other keyphrases, what a bummer !

Should i change it back or leave it.

www2 seems to have gone live on www
I'm watching and waiting..

We still see the same stuff on www and the new results on www2 have not gone live for us yet. We did notice however that one of our sites that when we looked yesterday was listed #9 on www2 is now listed #5. :) We'll take that!
Just checked my logs and our traffic has significantly increased. Looks like Yahoogle has updated. I was never sure just how many people used that portion of Yahoo! but I may find out this go-round!</update>

I also see update on google.yahoo, but not on www google yet.


 6:13 am on Aug 22, 2001 (gmt 0)

I've been waiting for yahoo google to update fro a long time and it hasnt happened as far as i can see. Does anyone know how often and when they update?? Does anyone also know how long it takes for the new Google proper update to completely pan out from every location?


 10:59 am on Aug 22, 2001 (gmt 0)

I think it has already taken place - maybe need some time to stabilize-coz I see my site 2 days ago not in is now in even in yahoogle.that makes my day-Also to enquire is My biz listing in yahoo WAS top among few good keywords now slumped to next few pages.-Has this to do with the updating into google- any insite??:)


 3:19 pm on Aug 22, 2001 (gmt 0)

I wouldn't think the update is final since none of the results that we saw changed in www2 have made it to www yet. Anyone else have any input?


 3:28 pm on Aug 22, 2001 (gmt 0)

As of right now, yahoogle is showing the new index and google is showing the old with www2 showing the same as yahoogle..... we are still dancing

Has anyone else noticed anything strange from YahooGoogle? I had a portion of my website that I deemed off topic, and so had broken off all links to it a few months ago, planning eventually to delete it.

Google has, of course, left it out of the index for the past few months. Its not now in any of the dancing indexes or the main index.

Well starting about the same time as the dance, I've started to get traffic from YahooGoogle to those pages. A quick check reveals that Yahoo is using a three month old index.

Can anyone else confirm?


 10:46 pm on Aug 22, 2001 (gmt 0)

Does anybody know which google results are the ones that will eventually stick.
At the moment I see
1. very good rankigs of my site on www2.google
2. www.google and www3.google are showing the same results but worse rankings for my site than www2.google
3. yahoo-google is sometimes showing the best rankings but sometimes it also shows preupdate results.

I also noticed that the only results that have been consistent for the last three days are www2.google.com



 10:51 pm on Aug 22, 2001 (gmt 0)

I do not believe it is possible to tell (if it were - there would be no need for the shifting).

I am more excited if I see a listing that is good that has the most amount of results AND is recent (by looking at the cache or Title if you have changed it) - or that is the same for all four.

Other than that - I think you have to wait and see.

My 2 cents


 11:29 pm on Aug 22, 2001 (gmt 0)

Does yahoogle have the same results listed for a given keyword as google??


 1:03 am on Aug 23, 2001 (gmt 0)


once results become stable they should be the same.


 2:06 am on Aug 23, 2001 (gmt 0)

They are the same with regard to sequence, but there are less pages returned for a given search on yahoogle than google proper. Same relative ranking, but they'll appear different numerically.

In either case, in my opinion it is very frustrating to see your business at one moment being #10 and ten minutes later it's nowhere to be seen. Can you imagine owning a commercial real estate property and next day you come and it is not there any more. These issues are some of the major flaws of Internet business models in general.
