How are you lot checking new PR values. i thought you could only find that out once it has settled on www.google.com?


 1:20 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

strange: i cant seem to find my sites in www2 and www3. hm... lets wait for update to finish.


 1:20 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

NO changes in my categorie everything is as usual and the 1 page I have which is down is still listed, so no news here.


 1:24 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Woo Hooo!

After many months of being listed in DMOZ but experiencing the mysterious lack of DMOZ description on our results... we're baaaaack....

The Ranking indicator is still not appearing next to our web directory listing, but this is a good start.

Now I must go and arrange a sacrifice as I pledged.....


 1:25 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Found some new directory links on the serps that weren't in the directory too.

new topics = new thread.
new questions = new thread.

pleas help us out with that, but not asking and not answering unrelated questions in the middle of a thread (threads go sideways when that happens).



 1:29 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

After a month out of the index for unknown reasons, my main site is back in. Ranks are good, and I'm smiling again.


 1:29 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

None of my logs scream GB to me.


 1:34 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

A site we lost in the 4/26 update still is not appearing :(


 1:37 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

definite changes - (lazz do you have an app which monitors for an update?).

One of my clients has gone to number 1 for a couple of keywords - woohoo! - up against some very big corporates....

Hi, just tried a link:mysite.com on www3.

To my amazement it included my profile information from Webmasterworld. Did not give the correct link (gave [noi...] ), but had the gist of the profile page and information from there.

Profile :
... Home / Member Profiles. Member Name: Olaf. Email Address: xxx@mydomain.com.
Member Since: May 29, 2001. Last Post: Apr 26, 2002. ...
noi - Similar pages

So it downloads the profile page, indexes the data, but since its noindex does not give the url.?

(Perhaps this is old information, ?:-) )

This is BAD .. A site that was down and displayed a server default page is ONLY showing the "default" server page in this UPDATE. YUK!. What is strange has been Googlebot craweled the site 10 days later YET all we got was the server default page ... So, a few hours of downtime and you are out of Google for a month;)


 1:45 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

This update seems weird. I seem to have lost a lot of keywords...I wonder if they are done fixing the algo's...



 1:51 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

www2/3 seems to have only picked up new sites that I submitted over 2 weeks ago, although newer sites have been spidered.


 1:53 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

My site is back in www2 and www3. Shuhhhhhhhhh. Now, we just need it back in www.

I am a happy camper now! :)


 1:58 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Nice One Google

Site showing 86 links into our site from 28, I am curious that in our logs GB only hit 1 page and left but the 25 of our own pages seem to be there. How can you guys see a different P?


 2:01 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

NickIlle, I also seem to have been skipped by Mr G Bot.


 2:01 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

How can you see a new PR?


 2:01 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

The usual chicken counting seems to be in progress.... so the usual warning: The juggling is far from over. I've just seen a dramatic shift with one site on WWW2 in about a 5 minute time frame.


 2:07 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Okay, I'm getting the beers! My sites are no where to be seen in www but one of my clients is showing Number 1 in 2 and 3!

Wahoo! I love my job!!!!


 2:12 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

lazz do you have an app which monitors for an update?).

Nope always done it by hand.
is is just me who thinks Google, have been a little to easy with spam this time?


 2:17 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Still no action in my categorie, but I did get a single hit from google.nl, but the link was gone when I maked a search.


P.s I have not yet been listed with this domain name on google


 2:23 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

The 2 sites I'm waiting to go in this time are both not showing any PR at all. Guess they don't get that till they make it into www huh?

How long before we see the main index change anyone?



 2:34 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Monday, Tuesday would be my guess for it to make it to www.google


 2:35 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Up to #2 on one really good keyword! Down some on a couple other good keywords. Can't even find my site on some keywords. I'll wait until we call this one done before I look at it again.


 2:56 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

I've seen that "noi" show up on several searches. Appears to either be a bug, or a test of some sort.


 2:59 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

>>is is just me who thinks Google, have been a little to easy with spam this time?<<

Dunno about spam, but I've noticed a decline in relevancy for some keywords. I can't use a real-life example here, but let's say the keyword is "Springfield." Instead of all top 10 results for "Springfield" being about "Springfield," one is for a small university that just happens to be in Springfield...while a Springfield travel site with nearly 500 pages about Springfield has dropped out of the top 10 and into the #17 position.

Still, all in all, I can't complain too much about what I'm seeing in WWW2 and WWW3. Some of my results are up, and some are down, but the changes don't seem dramatic for the most part--and my new pages (the ones that were uploaded right before the last deep crawl) are ranking nicely for their keywords.


 3:00 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Yeeeeehaaaw! #2 for my major search phrase and #1 for 47 other search phrases. Now if I can just get my inquiry page working maybe I can cash in!!!!

I hope this one sticks ... I love Google! :)


 3:10 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

Yup I do agree with seeing updates. Wasnt it someone here who predicted the update would happen when google logo changed friday?


 3:13 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

still no ation, but I did get a hit from yahoo.google on a great keyword and listed as no.1 but if I did the same search on google there where no link, so it looks like yahoos google base does come first with update?



 3:25 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

I assume you are talking about the results on www2? I hope this doesn't stick for us.. we dropped 4 pages in the results for our main page on our main site. :( One of our sites moved from #2 to #1 but the site in second place is returning a 404. So hopefully things will shuffle a bit as days go by.


 3:38 pm on May 24, 2002 (gmt 0)

It's a bit early for an update, isn't it?

They've been updating around the 1st and 10th for the last two months.
