Next step--Backlinks to be added...
Are we on track now for some of the backlinks to be factored back in?

According to Googleguy, the new index will be deployed to the data centers. It's safe to say this has happened.

If I understand correctly, the next phase is to begin pulling in more data (i.e. newer backlinks, pages, and spam updates).

Is this the stage we are in now? (My homepage is still buried, although some newly indexed interior pages are turning up.) I know that I am missing backlinks. I am hoping that as the backlinks are added, my homepage will resurface.

OR, Have I missed the boat and all backlinks have already been pulled back in? In which case, I just have to wait for the deepcrawl and the next update?

Does anyone else have a site that is still in a state of flux?

Well, the first "phase" (getting the index to the other datacenters) took what seemed like a month--at least a couple of weeks. The next "phase" may very well occur weeks from now (as opposed to days). But, you are right... bringing in new data is where we go next, according to Googleguy. I am just not holding my breath that it will happen anytime soon. :(

Oh, probably every site in the google index is in some form of flux at the moment. GG did say backlinks and other data and other filters would happen after the sj type index propagated. He also indicated more than days, less than months for everything to take place. That seems to be where we are now.

As to how long until everything (filters, backlinks, fresh data, etc.) is accounted for, I have not clue one and won't pretend otherwise.

I thought it was "weeks less than months" :(

It appears to me that the qualitative value of the backlinks is not being fully factored in.

On a search I used to rank #3 for, there are now a couple of pages listed above me that have no backlinks or 1 backlink to them. My page has 20 backlinks that showup in the link search, all with the keyword in the anchor text.

I think Google will be layering in more things over the coming weeks. I don't think this will be done for awhile, so I just chillin' for the next month or so.

He did say that in a later post. Also, GG never specifically stated that this would involve anything more than these backlinks showing up with the link: command. Unless this involves changing the rank in SERPs, who cares if the backlinks show with the link: command?

you could not be more right on. They can add all kindsof things but it don't mean squat until they rank the sites again next update.
