WWW2 & 3 are showing big changes in the SERPs to WWW as of this morning in the UK.

Anybody else noticing anything,

Looks like a false alarm to me folks. Move along. On the test SERPs I always check, which are very non-commercial and very little ever changes, results are unchanged to position 100. These are the best sort of SERPs to use to check for updates. Little freshbot action, and thus you can see any algo changes. My guess is the folks who posted here in this thread are seeing freshbot activity.

My log files are screaming something is up, especially at AOL. But i don't really see any changes on www, www2 & www3

A page of mine in a commercial category moved from #10 to #7 to #17 to nowhere to be found to #10 again - all within 2 hours or so on www. (Non-commercial searches are showing slight changes.)

Definetely some changes on www2 and www3 IMO - not just Freshbot.

I have not noticed anything to major yet - just a little shuffle?

Strike my previous post folks. It just took a little while longer to show up in my neck of the woods of the Internet. Something big IS going on www2 and www3 at the moment. As in a site of mine jumping from nowhere to #4 on a very common (if not too competitive) 2 word phrase. Considering my post total here, I'm not so foolish as to use the U word to describe this, as the mods might jump all over me for being that bold. ;) Let's just leave it as "something is up", and this bears close inspection.

Have fun folks comparing www2 and www3 SERPs to www this weekend. ;)

If it makes it easier for some here, check:

I too have seen a big change but it seems stable on www. I sent in a dissatisfied with results report to google but labeled it austinbrandy update. I'm starting to think that was wrong.

Does anyone know how to fix a leaky shower faucet?

I put down these new results as just Google paying with the algo a bit.Didn't they say they are trying 7 different ones a week?
Nothing really drastic that I can see.

In my SERPs they are drastic changes. One of my sites went from #10 to #70, another from #6 to #11.

One strange thing I did notice for 4 of my major 3 word keyword phrases is that I seem to have swapped places with the same site, i.e. theirs goes to my #6 position and mine goes to their #11 position, also another of my sites went from my #3 position to their #7 position and vice versa. The SERPs in between also changed so it's not as if it's only my sites and their site swapping places.

I would really be interested to hear from anybody else if theya re seeing the same thing or even similar, or even if somebody had an explanation for this. It seems VERY strage.

Well I notice that I have similar sites replacing other sites of mine.
Also some results have put pages that were no#40 or so up to the no#1 page and vice versa.
My serps have been alternating for a couple of weeks and I just see this as a heavier change in the algo and I am not even sure it will stick.
I'll take it though, if it is an update,as any update where I don't get banned is a good one.:)

I don't see much difference in the serps. Some of my sites went slightly up and others slightly down. I still see the same crap results that resulted from Florida and Austin. I was hoping things would change possibly Google would see the light and stop filtering rich content sites.

Pretty major changes in some spaces I watch.

I too see some pretty major changes, but nothing that really helps/hurts me.

I see essentially no change. If that's really an update, it will be the most boring one I ever saw. The only difference I could notice was a couple of really spammy sites moving slightly up.

Agreed, although I would say 'hidden' rather than 'banned', at least in my experience. The good thing is that it only hurts half as bad these days.

I hope this isn't the new index, it doesn't look good to me.

My site has lost alot of its positions.

Looks like a definite improvement across the board (I want my dance tool bookmarks back... sniffle). Some piffle swept away.

So far, so good. It's more of a waltz than a dance in 4/4 time. Steady as she goes.

Thanks for the IP#, Steveb.

I'm seeing some pretty big shifts. Like some #1's dropping to #20+.
I love a good shake up.....

I'm now seeing a variety of different results from www - not just the ones from www2. Who knows which data centre holds the actual update - there are so bloody many of them!

Perhaps GG can confirm this one?

I still say that it's not a major update, at least not at this point. If it were, there would be more than 26 posts in this thread...

i want to ask if the SERPS at www2 and www3 as it shows at this moment will be the official future index of Google?

I see different results every 5 minutes or so... I don't like the "new" one at all, I went from #2 to #7, #11 to #19, #2 to #10 for my major keywords.

Saturday night, friends, dinner with the romantic interest, catch up on sleep... it might take a day or two.
