Well this is news to me. I thought that Google results were constantly moving.
Doesn't sound like the typical Google reply. Are you sure this wasn't via Google Answers, perhaps?
My experience has been that Google's on a rolling strategy constantly updating their algo and sites being included. Haven't really seen any evidence supporting what you suggest.
no offense but...why would Google explain to you what they do? It just doesn't seem like a Google response to me.
Google was right "thank god" I am back. :)
I am still waiting. My site is almost 6 months old. It ranks, but not well. I have a PR 5 for almost all pages and rank #1 for all of the allin's for my main keywords.
I've never heard of anyone getting such an in-depth answer from an email to Google. I can't see why they would both to give such an answer.
Sorry, but I don't buy it.
>>Every 6 months they do a shift.
This "shift" brings in a bunch of new sites and does a bit of "rotating" to fit them in.<<
Hey they told me every 12-months Santa Claus comes round, but I aint seen him for 30 years ;-)
>>but I aint seen him for 30 years
I didn't realize you're an old man! ;)
All the webmasters here are under 30! ;)
Real webmasters are 35+

That "every 6 month shift" thing sounds a bit suspicious. As I remember, GG told us to expect the constantly updated algo (back in Feb?); that dances were a thing of the past.
Still, it would make a lot of sense for G to periodically shake things & webmasters up a bit, cleaning out the obvious riff-raff that makes it way into organic SERPS.
So, can anyone remember a big shift six months ago and six months before that, last august?
Can you sticky me the email from Google? Thank You.
Could you sticky me, too, the email from Google? Thanks

So instead of it being a three week wait, it was a 5 day wait, interesting.
Instead of showing backlinks, they should have a backshare button on the toolbar. See how many GOOG shares a site owner has ;)
That's a great news that you're back.
Are you sure you wrote to google only and the reply you got was from them only!
i could not digest this!
|not to worry, in 3 weeks my sites will be back online the way they were before |
Can you sticky me the mail from google if that's not a probelem.
Maybe your site disappearing this was just a glitch and they knew it :)
Sticky me too, if it wouldn't be too much trouble?

Just to cover all the bases, I'm an Answers Researcher -- an extensive site search (covering Comments as well as Answers) yields no results over the time period to indicate such info came from GA, as we so fondly call it. I've also checked with several others who write within this subject. Nobody has used that sort of phrasing, nor have they heard of that particular theory.
shanbr, you still there?
