Back? I had alot of sites go down with this new update thingy thats happening over at google and I also noticed alot of other sites go down. Today I seen alot of them come back, has yours? What I mean is the pr and back links are back but, no serlp's yet. Is this the end of "part 2" of the update GOOGLEGUY? Also, some of the sites that dropped out were good PR and now there pr0, will this change in "part 2" of this update(and sites getting into the serlps) or is this going to be part of "part 3" of the google update, GOOGLEGUY?

Now serp does not seem to be stable; one third of my dropped sites were backed last week, and they are appearing and disappearing for two cycles already. Eventhough those that return appear across 9 datacenters, the chance is still there that they will disappear again. Better wait to see the final outcome in the coming update - only then we can open champaigne...

Have you been spidered in the past few days? This activity could be due to freshbot.

What you sometimes find is that freshbot will index your pages and they will filter into the index for a few days. Generaly fresh bot gathered pages do not stay in the index though.

It may be different this time though. A lot of peopel are saying freshbot and deep bot may in effect be doing the same job now.

Really we will just have to wait and see.

No change.
Dropped pages are still with gray bar an not in SERPS, and some old directory from the previous domain owner, which is dead(404) since september, is still in Google SERPS.

It's unlikely be the activity of freshbot. The dropped site that I intend to meant is for the site homepage that had been dumped to nowhere in serp for the targeted keywords (while internal pages are not and perform ok)...These sites are not new, but may not be old enough and the average age is from 3-6 months old. Freshbots do show up for those that return and those that don't, so I cannot see connection with it.

I know I got some pages in a few days ago - they are new - so I am assuming it is freshbot - even though it doesn't say "fresh".

I am with mack on this one - seems like freshbot on my end, but I can't say for sure as I don't monitor everything as close as some of you...

Something seem to be differant, the .biz spammer that was talked about a couple of months ago is back in full strenght......

When google rolled over the "new" index a couple of weeks ago most of his sites was gone.

My PR increased during the last weeks, but most of my sites which had good rankings, dropped. Since tuesday I recognized that my german site got its good position again. I just still wait for my english site!

one site that dropped from the index w/greybar months ago has pagerank today. Not much, but pr nonetheless.

Yup, it looks like some of the "old sites" that were dropped are back and some of the "newwer sites" that were dropped are back with there pr or a pr0 but, none with any slerp.

Here's what I have seen with my site.

My site had a PR6 - it was dropped in early May.

Yesterday, my site got a PR6 again, however, I did a search for my URL in google (example: xyz.com), and Google shows "Sorry, no information is available for the URL "

I'm guessing that there is a sequence on all Google updates, e.g., it may first update PR ranking, then the index refreshes, or a bunch of other sequences.

Does anyone have any take on historical sequence of events for all Google updates?

Could this still be part of the testing that google seems to be doing? I have seen sites literally in for one search then on a refresh gone, then on another refresh back in! Different data on different data centres and fresh pages could be an explanation.

Same here toolkit, have a site that climbed well through march & april to #6 then vanished from serps this update. www-va now shoes it back at #7, hope this is a sign of good things to come.

Have seen the same on some datacentres

It looks as if Google are playing with the Semi-Penalty as discussed at length in AthlonInside's thread of a week or so ago.

Um, no. Google is behaving as it has for three weeks. Would you guys get a grip and just accept that sites are going to move up and down, and 2003-new sites are going to move in and out of the index?

I have this strange urge now to drive up to the Googleplex and just give the whole building a good shake for mucking up Webmasterworld this much.

No, at risk of talking too soon (as always) one of my sites is back in. Although Google cache is still old!

Main pages of my two sites have been dropped from the index, but they remained with PR5. Other pages, especially the link pages, were untouched. After the update, one of them kept appearing in the search results once in a while and the other one never showed up.

I hope that this was just indexing problem and main pages will reappear after the next update.

I have purchased a few expired domains and their PR had been dropped by Googlre, however yesterday morning the PR on all those sites was reinstated. Could there be a link between those events?

I have seen a previously banned site (grey bar out of index for months) have all it's backlinks added to it and PR showing. It is not in the index, however.

Absolutely no change here. Still no index page. Interior pages still not refreshed in days despite fresh content.

I have a domain that seemed to have been dropped/semi-penalised that is bouncing in and out of the first page on all the data centres. One minute it might be on all of them, next none and everything in between. First I seen of it reappearing since the early stages of Dominic.

No PR changes though, but something seems to be afoot.

I also can confirm no changes, still get sites with 404 pages in the Serps.

I have noticed that some of my back links have come in, but still only 50% of what I had :(

I saw a competitor's site get dropped completely from the index about a month ago (roughly). Grey toolbar and all.

The site came back into the index around 25th/26th, much to my disappointment, naturally. ;)
