I see very different serps on www and www2 for several searches, actually all searches I've done so far this sunny afternoon.

Seeing quite a few 'foo' listings in www2.

WRT irrelevant results, try this:

Casino surveillance [www3.google.com]

The top result is a blank directory index. The other results aren't much better. Perhaps they have finally seen the light and converted to the Altavista random index?

Is it just clustering off?

Same here, expected PR back got removed instead :)

The Bombing bloggers have made an impact too!

GG knocked off the #1 slot for "search engine" ;)

diddlydazz: true! I checked on one term we follow and first page has good results but second and third page etc has TOTALY strange results! totally irrelevant for search kexwords!

those who got PR back: do you see your pr back when puting link directly back in toolbar or from cache? I only see pr back for my cache (whcih is new BTW). directly puting link in toolbar still gets me pr 0! :(

Very strange results indeed. PR0 site seems to be back in but will only come up with the home page, and only for the company name. even though a site:url term search will list all the pages. So all sub-pages are buried.

when checking www2 and www3 on my site and i click on cache i have my pr back!

No you don't see your new PR, that's just the PR of the Ip that google uses to show the cashed pages on, You will see that all sites/pages have the same pr on the WWW3 and WWW2 cashes.

Maybe :)

I hope they sort this out before it goes live, it has got that Altavista feel about it.

What have you done Google ?????

Search "bvi hotels" on www2 and see all the foo listings. Makes no sense at all!

JonB, are you not just seeing the PR for the *Google* page? I don't think that the PR for the cache page has any relation to your site whatsoever.

I'm seeing huge changes on www2 and www3. One site I have went from #420 to #1 for the same keyword phrase. Sure hopes that holds! Hoping to get rid of that PR0.

Jonb,
I don't think that they have updated the PR scores yet (for the toolbar)

keep waiting jonB, it aint over yet.

i've found 2 client sites completely disappeared from the index ... all inbound links remain though ... one might have been lost due to another companies server being down, but no idea why the other one would have dropped out ... ho hum, lets see what happens now ...

Great!!! Seeing excellent new results on www2 and www3... PR on toolbar isnt updated - is there another way to get the PR via www2 or www3?

abrexa- that would be the best. But how do some know then that they have pr back and that "lots of PR removed"?

If you had PR0 before, and you see your sites for some keywords, then you don't have PR0 anymore, the sites that had the "PR0 effect" showed up last on the serp's.

Some seem normal, but one kids category is loaded at the top with sites about capitalist swine. :)

A site recently added to ODP was showing in the Google Directory, but none in that category had any Page Rank showing. Now it's gone, looks like the directory is shifting.

Well, I'm still affected by this 0 Pagerank problem (see my profile for an example)

It seems as if these buggers have to manually removed by the top sausages at Google.

Bah!

Congrats Nuts&Bolts!

A very interesting update this time - I like it.

Looks like it got pulled back into the shop?

the PR on the toolbar gets it's info from www.google.com.

So no PR (toolbar) will show until this index is totally settled into the main index.

you may see a fluctuation as the index gets switched, but it is best to wait untill the index settles.

If Google go ahead with this index I will be using FAST for a month ;) seriously

I am new here, but I assume this is the Google Dance folks are talking about. :)

They seemed to have indexed very many pages that search engine's produce, when i search for keywords i get search.evreka.passagen.se/query?q=searchterm
for example.

Whoa

I don't know what foo means. Is it the same as fubar? Because that's what I see on www3.

Totally unhelpful search results on keywords. Many results in the Top 10 that have absolutely nothing to do with the keywords I am searching for.

Seems like a major bug or work in progress. Either that or they are late in playing their April Fools joke on the SEO Community.

If this is their best shot at the final, I can see a lot of searchers shifting away from Google to something that actually gives back relevant results.

Alec, it has already switched back. Plus, the pr values in the toolbar were never updated.

Thanks for the peek Google.

Back to old results, hopefully someone at google had too much coffee :)

Let's hope they get back to relevancy, although one of my sites was ranking very well for a keyword that has nothing to do with the site ;)
