Update Dominic - Part 8
Speculation Continues

 9:43 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

Google now shows on their main index the new update and new algo.

I thought Google where going to add more back links but they no.

The number of backlinks on one of my sites have dropped by 50%

I hope this posting is acceptable

Nothing on WWW for me - fortunately.


 9:51 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

I needed a url from Google to show some results
so I used www and I had dropped by 4 places I checked
my baclinks and they where showing what use to be on www-sj and www2, www3

Google are switching it over now and www are still showing old results from different datacenters maybe a handfull of datacenters are showing.

I Know too well not to post unless its for real and I have never posted with out a reason. I was not panicking before like many because I knew backlinks still had to be included.

However now that I see on www no new backlinks I am starting to worry!


 9:53 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

Unfortunately, I see it too :( Big traffic drop for me! I dropped at least 50-75 positions on all favorite keyphrases. All I can do now hope for next month.


 9:56 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

Thank god some else has seen it, I thought I would be in trouble.

Google tells us to increase our link popularity and webmasters jump to get it. Now they have slashed my backlinks and I have dropped.

Google likes to play games!

data center -va showing new results


 9:57 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

Maybe next month they will add data from March crawl :)

My newer site has ranked well with a PR 6 and many backlinks for the past two months and now shows 11 links (February data). Guess I'll have to hope for a huge month out of freshbot.


 9:59 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

Negative, VA is the same to me, so as other datacenters. Please prove everything.


 10:00 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

Data coming from www-fi

It would be very sad if Google makes us wait another month for the March crawl.

Very strange update


 10:00 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

I see no changes at all....


 10:00 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

I see no changes.


 10:01 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

-va looks the same to me.


 10:02 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

Nothing here - (Canada)


 10:02 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

www has new data for me as well ... BAD


 10:03 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

My results on the main index seem to be coming from www-fi.google.com

I couldn't believe my eyes checked 4 times beleive me I have never posted wrong before!

still only on sj and fi for me


 10:07 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

No changes here in the UK!


 10:09 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

yahoo still mirrors old data - at least here in NYC


 10:11 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

Stop the madness! There is no update yet. There are (at least) nine data centers, and their SERP's vary right now, so you WILL see fluctuation depending on which dns you happen to hit...

Wait until www is consistent; wait until Yahoo! backlinks are the same on all nine servers; or best of all, wait until Brett says it is so...

THEN you can panic ;-)


 10:11 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

I imagine some areas are still showing last months results but I am definately seeing the new(terrible) results. I have another site that is out of the index after being indexed last month. Gone!

ex va and dc are showing diffrent results than fi and sj and the other data centers


 10:13 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

I'm not seeing it here in Washington. But I am seeing a HUGE increase in traffic today.

If this is just from a few data centers switching over, I think I will be a happy camper once the update is complete.

Then again, it might be an increase for some other random reason. It's hard to tell with just a few hours of the increased traffic.

If it is the new results, I am kind of surprised. Most of the keyphrases that I checked dropped me by a spot or two. I just have too many to check them all.


 10:13 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

For those who see new results, maybe google.com is directing search to datacenter at FI or SJ.

Everyone seeing new result, please confirm to see if it is FI or SJ (compare the number of results return, FI usually has more pages then SJ).

Posting with the datacenter is more benefit to us who read your post (instead of only, 'I see the changes').


 10:14 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

I have check all the datacenters. For me, only SJ and FI has new data.


 10:18 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

At this point when the update happens it should have a new name already.

Part 8? I mean come on. :)


 10:19 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

just keeping inline with the guidelines of WW

Which I have always done and will do!


 10:19 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

here's what i see right now

www = fi data
www2 = sj data
www3 = sj data


 10:19 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

I don't see any new index in the Netherlands yet and Brett's tool doesn't see it either: [webmasterworld.com...] from whereever that thing sits.

added: from where I am -sj is the same as www.

don't know what to say, continuous craziness. Please continue tho, other seo forums are getting a big kick out of this.


 10:22 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)

So www are showing www-fi which means they have started rolling it out to the main index!

Could it be that Google are forcing their new 100 links per page rule and sifting out all those bad link pages?
