Differant Serps - EverFlux
What is going on?

I am getting differant serp results from google again. I thought they were complete on their update and now www3 is showing completely differant results again for a few keywords.

Any ideas?

It is common to see things shuffle in certain markets throughout the entire month. One SERP that we are ranked in changes weekly, at least.

This is more than one. This is roughly about 5 differant keywords.

On a new domain I'm there today and wasn't last night. In fact, it's the first time I've seen it in Google. First crawl since the site went live by googlebot shows only three days ago. (Not that I'm complaining - but it strikes me as strange.)

Yeah, I've never had a "fresh" tag before, but I got one for about a dozen or so pages yesterday. Those get a little bump in the SERPS which, obviously effect everything that's gotten bumped. Kinda cool if you're the one with the fresh tag, kinda sucks if you're the one wondering why you just moved down 10 slots.

Sorry Grumpus, what do you exactly mean with "fresh" tag??

Digimon, there are no real "fresh tags", but that is what most people refer to when they see the date next to their listing. It is basically the same thing.

I have a few pages which show up with fresh tags, but the site has no PR - I mean grey bar. I wasn't spidered until the 26th of August. Surley if the site is in the index it should have some kind of PR?

clickclick, are you referring to the site in your profile? If so, the site has a PR4.

It is a bit weird. I thought the dance is over but now suddenly a very old page of mine that I just changed a bit and that I hadn't updated for months suddenly shows up in the top 10 for an important keyword. It also has the date tag. I didn't know that old sites can change their positions between dances that much.

As mentioned, the "fresh" tag means it has a date in the results. Once you've gotten that tag, Google tends to come back every day or and check those fresh pages for new content. If it has been updated, the new content goes right into the index. If it hasn't been updated since the last visit, the fresh tag usually goes away (and, unfortunately, so does the newly indexed content - it'll go back to what was there at the last dance.)

Fresh tags move in and out constantly, and I suspect that is most of what we see in the fluctuations from day to day between major updates.
