-you look at the moon and think......it's coming.

-the only thing you search yahoo for is backlinks.

-you just glance at webmaster world ten times a day for an extremely long thread.

-you know who darrin ward is.

-you have to up your dosage of prozac at the end of the month.

-you make stupid puns about dancing

-you have made any posts about a "big red button"

-you know how many datacenters google has

-you have "spidey sense" for everflux

-you have posted a "premature egooglation" thread (claiming the update has started when it really hasn't)

-you have spent any time asking, reading, or speculating on when the "it" would begin

-you have studied and constantly reference the full moon chart and dates that the update began.

Anyone care to fill in any that I missed?

I was bored.:)

Your website is down for an hour, and all you can think about is whether Googlebot may come around, get nothing, and toss you out of the index. Happened to me just yesterday. My website host had a bad day yesterday and had a hard drive crash, taking one of my 2 sites offline for an hour. Please tell me I'm not doomed? :( Since the deep crawl is over, I am assuming not.

You also, like me, have to wear bandages on your fingers because you don't have any nails left and it hurts like hell when typing on your keyboard to post threads on this forum (my new home).

YOU ask this kind of questions, r2d2? Are you also bored? Well, no, your site isn't doomed. And if you guys search a job where you don't have the time to get bored, sticky me! ;)

You mean like spending all my days on a forum learning the top do's and don't of SEO. Checking for google updates every 10 minutes, and checking competitors tactics for SERP positioning and if they are not trying to spamm SE to get better PR ... hummmm souds like something I've never done before ;)

You know you have update fever when.....

....Brett and the admin/mods starting to combine the various update threads into one big one.

You know it's getting closer when.....

....Brett removes the various update threads from the recent posts.....

....People start to *see* changes in the SERPs......

....Yahoo see's a traffic spike but strangely few page views.....

You know it's happening when.....

....A thread on WW goes from 0 to 500 posts in less than 10 minutes.....

....The "Ive been banned from Google" threads begin.....

You know it's over when.....

...the "is my site banned?" threads begin.....

...the "my competitors are spamming and they're still number one" threads begin.....

...new users arrive on the forum, drawn in by the addictive paranoia of the rest of us.....

And then Google cycle is over....

....until next month!;)

- Never planning an out of town trip the last weekend of the month.

- Whipping your head around anytime you hear the words 'it started'.

- You find youself applying algorithmic processes to everday events (This movie has to be good - box office gross times positive reviews divided by negative reviews plus line at the theatre multiplied by a great title - er name.......).

-- You skip taking a few days off.
-- You know who Daniel Dulitz is.
-- You count how many pages Google get's when it does the deepcrawl.
-- You have a Google folder on your computer.
-- You make a Google log.
-- You only visit the Google News message board.
-- You write about the Deepcrawl in your Web Log 10 days in a row every month.

Research, research, research... the 3 magic words, tgeye.

Have a look around via the "site search" link at the top of the page.

Cheers,

Not this Google [rienzihills.com], Andy. The other one - the one with the pigeons.

With my other post [webmasterworld.com] I'm definitely convinced i've lost the plot...

The pigeons that dance at the beginning of April, or at least tell you where to go... (rats with wings imho)

- You read every thread that mentions either "Google", "Update", "Started" or "Backlinks"

Marcia, posting links to annoyingly catchy webtunes... for shame!

Time for a two-hour dose of 80s music to stop the pain :)

Last night I had a dream that I was walking along Chapel street and everyone was looking at me. When I looked in the mirror to my horror I discovered that I was naked from the hair up. I found myself running away, then I stopped.......

sorry wrong forum....

Were the people who were looking at you dancing by any chance, Munster? It might be a sign...
