Haven't caught many posts discussing www2/3 lately...

When the FI update first broke did www2 and www3 point to www-fi?

What's the point of www2 and www3 these days?

www2 216.239.41.100
www3 216.239.41.100
www-fi 216.239.41.100
www-sj 216.239.35.100
www-in 216.239.53.100
www-dc 216.239.39.100
www-ex 216.239.33.100
www-zu 216.239.55.100
www-va 216.239.37.100
www-ab 216.239.51.100
www-cw 216.239.57.100

Any respectable web server can redirect requests based on the hostname used, regardless of IP address.

Hi Guys

I am on the road and I need some info. Can someone please tell me if google's update from last week completed and settled?

Are we now looking at the new index across all datacenters?

Was this a traditional update Or are we still encountering strange things to this current (June) update like we did last month?

Please Advise. Thanks!

This update is not even close to done. I can see why some think it's done because for some categories I can see datacenters lined up...but so many other categories vary and fluctuate radically.

Update not finished. I have a site that shows up #1 on cw and nowhere on ny of the other datacenters. Funny, it's getting a good amount of Google traffic just from that one datacenter.

Updated definitely (and unfortunately) not yet finish

By the way, I dont know if anybody else notices but what is happening, at least on my field and for my chosen keywords is being an EXACT REPLICA from Dominic. I mean that is following the very same moves than dominic did all over the prior to this update, in the way the pages first shows, in the way, it spreads over the datacentres and fluctuates, in the way that some websites are loosing their positions at a particular stage of the update, etc. Exactly as in Dominic

I hope I am wrong as if I am right, I should get my website dessapearing from the index in just a few days as it happened with Dominic - finger cross - (I am just now number 1 to 3 for many great keywoards)

Anybody else seeing this?

Why do people think in terms of what's happening on the local level? Think globally. People seem to think that data migrates from one data center to the next in a linear fashion. I'd like to propose that the folks at Google are very intelligent, and would never think to do things so inefficiently.

If I had their resources, I'd divide the task of ranking among each of the data centers, and then stew it all together in stages. Hypothetically and arbitrarily,

#1 would rank based purely on anchor text
#2 purely on H1
#3 keyword density
#4 titles

#5 PR

#6 temporary results
#7 temporary results
#8 temporary results

then you take #1&2 results, interpolate an average rank and store to #6
#3 & 4 to #7

then #6&7 to #8
then #5&8 to index

such a division of responsibility seems much more efficient in terms of computations and would explain the differences - and similarities- across data centers. Then to keep the pros guessing, each update I would switch which data centers were the bulk information gathering points (6,7,8), and which had the initial, uncomplicated ranked information (1,2,3,4,5). I would also arbitrarily switch the DNS around to keep people guessing, such that one could not take a particular data center, determine that its rankings are all based on anchor text per se and determine the exact recipe for that particular trait without some degree of difficulty.

Granted, I'd be doing it all on local machines before sending it out for public viewing. Unless they like to measure response at places like this to give them new ideas...

Not sure why these posts are in this thread. :)

But...

What if the update is never done? ;)

It's the new "update-thread-closed, latch-onto-any-carrier-resembling-it" bug that's going around. :)

"What if the update is never done? ;) "

It could at least catch up - delete dead backlinks from 2 months ago, give PR to a site that has had backlinks for over 2 months, upgrade PR for new backlinks, give a PR to millions of pages out there that are showing PR0 when the rest of the site is PR6 or 7.
