Definately getting different results on backward links for yahoo. www showing 657k and www2 and www3 showing 654k. Results for CNN are also different. Looks like the real deal.

My site was crawled for the first time early this month and ever since I have been on tenterhooks waiting for the dance to begin. And mow it's happening! The site appears in www2 and www3 with good results on keywords.

Now all I have to do is keep fingers crossed about www. :)

If I am right, I donate the mouse-pad to Lazerzubb's boss.

Don't you just hate it when all around are happy apart from you!

Dropped from 11th to 127th last month .... now showing at 179th. PPC budget is going to take a serious hit :(

Its strange that you say new PR will not show for a few days though Dino_M.. My PR is jumping around from pr4-pr5 on two of my sites. So its obviously affected already.. my backlinks havn't changed yet though and I am still seeing 657,000!

Glad to read that you are also pleased, PFOnline. I did so well last month that almost all the potential for my sites was on the downside. Looks like I eeked out a bit of improvement. A little disappointing if I've dropped from #5 to #6 on one keyword. However, that other keyword I am now at #1 on is the *trademark* of a multi-million dollar pharmaceutical company. If this holds, I'm beating out some BIG time competetion.

For the moment, I can't find my site listed in the WWW2 and WWW3 serps at all, but still on WWW will it be back in on WWW2&3 and thus plain WWW in a few hour/days, or should I prepare myself for the worst?

Are the results/backlinks that now show on www2 and www2 what will eventually settle as the main index on www?

I should have gained loads of links this month - but they have halved on www2 and www3 at the moment.

Nice. This whole "Google Now Liking Dynamic Pages" thing is working out a bit. Better than doubled my depth of crawl this month. Now, let's see if any of those pages rank in the top 400 listings. :)

Was i seeing things. My page, which is new and has never been listed in google about an hour ago showed a postive PR then it went away back to gray, came back to a positive pr and is now gray at the moment?

If one search result can make that big of a difference, then you need to target about 100 fold more keywords. Maybe hire a kw guru to find you more kw's that pull and produce roi.

You should never, ever under any circumstances be that invested in just one search result. eg: you want 50 pages/searches that pull 1 referral a day and you do NOT want 1 page/search that pulls 50 referrals day.

Google Update in the words of Paul Oakenfold:

"Like the record spins on the trails we blaze
The walls are closing in but that's ok because I've been waiting all week
to feel this way and it feels so good, so good.
I'm on top of the world the coolest kid in the neighbourhood
So let me be your star for one night that's right.
Sweatbox, laser beams, flashing lights, you've got to feel the rush, feel the spice of life.
Love-life, Shifty rolls the dice snake eyes surprise.
Iceing..Mesmorizing. the minds are sick ones 'cause what we are, is victims of fun.
Come on, come on, the fun is just begun; come on the fun is just begun. Ha Ha!

Oh my starry eyed surprise, sundown to sunrise,
dance all night, we're gonna dance all night, dance all night to this DJ."

GRRR
The Penalty of one of my sites is there , anyway. I hoped it could end with this update. And I must admit that I have NO idea why I was given this penalty.
This is really ****ing. To have about 600 Links to your site, but they are not counted just cause of an F*** penalty.
By the way: YES it is the site in my profile.

Your flipping from one datacenter to the other. The positive PR toolbar display is next months PR.

Wise words Brett, the secret is in the depth of keywords not the one or handful that seem to be most popular.

My top 5 keywords for my best site bring in 11% of my traffic (and they are all ranked #1).....never mind the quality...feel the width!

Quite a wait and thank god it's over. Had 8500 pages added in the first update for a new site. Can't wait to see traffic in the morning. Hope everyone else had a good update.

:(

Just because I don't see pages added yet, they could still be put in this update couldn't they? It takes days for the update to settle and there is still a chance they could get in right? They were all crawled during last update and over the last month.
oh where oh where have my new websites gone?
Oh where oh where could they be?
Oh look ... vodka.
gotta go.
