Google June 2003 : Update Esmeralda

 8:59 pm on Jun 15, 2003 (gmt 0)

We are seeing significant changes in Serps, back link numbers, fresh dates, and indexes at a couple of data centers.

This might mean a possible update.

WebmasterWorld Google Update Changes:

The problem: Chit chat noise in update threads.

Last month we hand several thousand messages posted about the update. The volume level was intense and people couldn't find the info that was appropriate. Many senior members complained about the "me too" chit chat messages being left.

We are not going to do that this month. If you don't have anything new to add to a thread thing please kick back and read. Additionally, we are going to be proactive in keeping those threads clean. Again, the volume is so high this time of month that informing everyone of any thread tidying is near impossible.

We would appreciate your continued latitude, cooperation (thanks), and patience as we head into this months update.

For the Team,
Brett Tabke

I am not sure if they really showing FI data with www but if they do, it is only 1/9 chances that you will see it because Google has 9 datacenters.

It has nothing to do with your location, so posts like 'Not seeing it in UK' or 'Not showing in UK' is irrelevant.

It is the 1/9 chances (should be 1/7 since 2 datacenters is inactive) to see FI in www. Not because you are in US or any special places in the world.

This confusion seems to be going on on all updates thread.

johnser - it's an interesting time to be a webmaster!

Thanks for telling me I am not alone, everyone.

On several data centers, I am seeing the first appearance of a site with one backlink - DMOZ.

A large portal site with an affiliation with Google continues in position #3 despite having no relevance to any important keywords.

Have you seen any of your index pages re-appear in the SERPS in this latest update.

I.e. semi-penalty lifting?

Alot of people in this thread are experiencing this again this update - GG is yet to confirm whether this is a glitch still or an algo change

Welp, posting or reading this thread is pointless; here's another one to delete.

OK, my 2 cents... Have 3 sites all of which have had new pages added. Also got all my new backlinks showing up which is great. Yet to check PR on fi but I guess it should go up with the new links.

I have noticed that one of my sites index page is not showing in the serps for its main keyword but it comes up for other lesser keywords.

Feels like it is a fairly robust update with Google doing everything it should be doing although I am sure there are others that will disagree :)

All of you worried about backlinks that are not appearing yet - don't!

This update is still in flux. Not all sites have been updated yet.

www is now back to old index.
