>its a shame the effort we all put in will go nowhere
Yes, it is a shame for the people who haven't achieved their goals yet, but there's always next month. That's something people get used to. And of course others have seen triumph with this update, for them it was time well spent. So the old saying is still true, that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

again over 50 days with no update not just the 15 sites i control but so many others i work for a large design firm
| 3:15 am on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
My site isn't even 50 days old and its in Google (granted not as much as I'd like!)
| 3:21 am on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I've got a site two weeks old and in Google. Doing nicely :)
| 3:34 am on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
new sites yes old sites that have been online for over 3 years that made changes in the past 50 days google did not update that
| 3:43 am on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
One of my other sites has a cache date of today! (and does in fact have the current content there)
| 3:44 am on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
It isn't full Beachboy, and I just got mail! And I do_not have you filtered out, I promise! :)

it looks like the update may be over.
| 5:48 am on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I don't think so. www and www3 are very different on my keywords.
| 5:50 am on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
tankman I dont think so. I can see significant differences between www3 and www .. it may take a while to stabilise.
Came across an overly keen SEO firm recently that sent out updates to its mailing list .. look how clever we are, "top spot in google for keyword *****" but they didn'y wait for stability and when recipients looked for the site it was not there ...
I guess pride does come before a fall :-)
I think you have the position you want when you get regular referrals over a period of time.

<--it looks like the update may be over.-->
What do you base this on? I still see old results at www and new ones at www2 and www3. I also see the update only on www-sj, with the other four data centers showing last months data. That wouldn't be my definition of 'over'!
| 6:06 am on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
We've had sites updated 3 times in 6 days, last being 27th July 2002. It's almost as if they notice a change in content and come back!
Not so good for dmoz cached sites. Not updated for four weeks :(

Hi Escort Biz,
You may be confusing a couple of things. Google does update once a month, but not all sites - yours may be some.
Pages that google picks to be "freshed" do have their new content cahed for around 2 to 3 days. If the page does not change for 2 or 3 days of so it goes back to the cache at the last major crawl.
Im not sure how you can state that google has not updated for 53 days, when so many people here say their sites have. It looks to an outside observer that this is a problem limited to your sites or the SERPS that you follow.

| 6:20 pm on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Please forgive me for sounding stupid, but what are you all talking about wwww2 and www3? Would you mind explaining to a somewhat newbie?
| 6:29 pm on Jun 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
If you type [www2.google.com...] you will be magically transported to the preview of the Google update. As Google dances you will notices changes on www2 and www3.
When the dance is over, the results of the datacenters are transferred to the main index: www.google.com
The Google Dance is a favorite spectator sport of SEOs and webmasters. :)

And cause for much indigestion. Pass the Pepto Bismol. ;)
