aspdesigner, you have just answered an ongoing question for me! Thanks.. I've always wondered why AOL shows up like that in my stats.. it's kind of annoying , as it distorts the 'unique visits' stats a bit!
Gees I had a site online for 4 days and it is in this update at number 3 for the 2 search strings that I was after. No back links showing or PR for the site but it is showing up on the search Awesome. Now that is service ......
I thought it was over but today my site moved from no.2 to 1 on main keyword, hmm strange but ok.
In reference to your post #292, I wouldn't be too concerned that you will get penalized for having a white background, blue tables and white text. That is exactly what Google itself has when you run a search. The results come back with a blue table where Results 1-10 of about 5,370,000. is displayed.
Are you guys sure that the listings are finalized? I see 2,030,000 results on www3 and 2,080,000 results on www for one of my search terms.

Don't count on it... Google doesn't penalize itself... I would play it safe and change the color scheme. Why risk it?
lazyz - I don't really find reversed text as a risk. Even if it goes to a hand review they will quickly see that it isn't a problem.
The problem isn't it going to a hand review. The problem is if it doesn't go to a hand review and just gets caught, undeservedly, in an automatic filter.
I suppose you are correct taking into account that Google only finds hidden text by site review and not by a spider. SPAM paranoia... There are so many "do's and dont's", I tend to be over-safe.
Better to be safe than sorry!
I got spidered by google yesterday on my not yet PR'd but slightly indexed (a dec 11th spidering of 4pages) site. This new spidering got 50 pages.
So... A spidering on Jan 7th.... part of this one, or the start of the next?
Reported the spam\multimirrorsites\hidden text again as suggested by you (see post 289).
Still nothing done.
I had high hopes...ah well. Not a lot I can do is there?
