GOOGLE Update March-April 2002
part 1

 11:36 am on Apr 6, 2002 (gmt 0)

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

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 ;)

Well, my main site is fixed - the site in my profile is still affected.

>is there another way to get the PR via www2 or www3?<

There's only one database for PR. Go to google.com and type in www.yourdomain.com and then click the Google Category your site is listed in. You will see the PR listed beside it.

However, it has changed back to the old index now. As Brett said ... thanks for the peek Google! You made my day! Now I can go teach the kiddies to sail in a VERY good mood!!!

Anyone else seeing no changes at all across www, www2 and www3?

Across a variety of sites and a number of keyword phrases I am seeing no changes what so ever, all sites that usually enjoy their monthly update.

We have #1s that are still #1s (ok thats fine) but we also have one that hasnt budged a bit from #142. Changes over a month old havent been included - hence I guess why the position is unchanged.

Anyone seeing similar results? Perhaps they reversed things before I got to the party!!

I think Google found that they are having some problems so have thrown the switch back to the old indexes on www1,2 & 3 again until they can get it sorted out.

Robber - the results have switched back to the old database.

Google was field testing with us.

I found no major problems at all.

What I noticed was that if you did a multiple-keyword search (e.g. x y z), the results seemed to emphasize z over x and y.

If I looked for x y "Seattle" for example, hoping to find an x of type y in Seattle, I got tons of real estate firms in Seattle and other things having to do with Seattle but not too much having to do with x or y.

Didn't have much time to look into it more but had enough time to figure out it was pretty messed up.

Oops, got a twitchy and jumped straight to end of thread - I'd have answered my own question if I'd read at all.

Got my ODP listing in late Feb. Was crawled in early March by Googlebot. Have a small number of links from PR5-6 pages. Still no sign of my site in the Google directory or Search even after the supposed update. Should I worry or give it another month?
