I am seeing no backlinks for yahoo or dmoz on www2 or www3, also serps are changing. Is this it?

EE your toolbar fetches pagerank values from www.google so that is why you are getting 14. The instructions I sent to you are to change the IP address so that your toolbar fetches PR value from www2.

Understand?

I'm bummed. Thought after I moved up a slot during the mid-month superflux (<<<<<< trademark steveb2003) I'd bounce over two tired sites above me, but no soap. Maybe next month.

<superflux is a mid-month large-scale everflux, with no backlink updating... if there is another in february, I want a mousepad>

Now, weird. Aren't the deeper pages "supposed" to have a lower pr than the main page? My index page has a pr5 and so do all of my inside pages too. Is this normal at this stage of the dance?

>>Can anybody tell me what these terms are:
1. Back Links
2. SERP
3. WWW2,WWW3
>>

1. Incoming links... refers to a google tool bar function.
2. S earch E ngine R esults P age
3. Refers to searching on google for a term, and then adding the number into the URL. That lets you see a little into the future of the dance.

The "dance" you say?

The dance is when google is updating, and it turns you, spins you, and you end up somewhere on the floor, bedazzled.

The uber-dance is underway!

Hey ExtremeSport can I get that code...my site is still PR0 in www (new site Dec9)...but in www2 & 3, I'm number one in SERPS...so I'd love to check my new PR

extreme, interior pages aren't supposed to be lower, they just normally are because people get more links to their main page. When interior pages are the same rank, it usually means your main page is "a high PR5" while your interior pages are "a low PR5". You should be encouraged as this may well mean you are fairly close to PR6 for the main page.

superflux beat out uberflux by a hair.

Just in case though...

EE - Check your sticky again, please

here is that info for toolbar

To see your new Pagerank on www2 before it is released to the world, add the following line to your TCP/IP hosts file:
216.239.33.100 toolbarqueries.google.com

For Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP users, the file is in:
c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

or

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

and by the way GoogleGuy...

is using google- dance. com to enter a search term like "widget" considered a mechanical rank checking no-no?

Looks to me like Google has once again changed what they count as back-links. My numbers show a drop of 60, when I have actually created 10 pages and gained approximately 30 new back-links. Too soon to tell if this will affect PR.

Gee Zapista, you made that sound ez..the code thingy, but I don't even know where my TCP/IP host thingy is...lol

keyplyr, I have suspicion there was slight dilution of PR across all sites to make room for newly indexed pages.

<added later> Maybe not. Accurately checked everything, it all went about how I figured it would.</added>

if so, go to directory-sj.google.com and toggle down through all the categories until you get to your category page. By squinting real hard at your PageRank Bar at the far left, and comparing yours in relation to those above and below you, you can get a rough idea.

What's this "sj"? The equivalent of www2, www3 and so on?

This doesn't seem to be correct actually. I have a site with PR of 5. In the "normal" directory the PR is 4 and in the above one (directory-sj.google.com) it is also 4. Has anobody else noticed this?

Strange, I don't see any positioning changes at all. Prior to this supposed update, a Yahoo backlink check was showing only 4,890 for me. It's still showing that, across www, www2 and www3. Are you people SURE the update is underway?

steveb thanks, that makes me feel great! Just the really deep pages have a pr4 otherwise they are all 5 as of the moment

there is one ting that puzzles me
it looks like a crawl, it spiders a lot of pages and deep BUT the address starts with a 64. like a fresh bot, any idea why? is it really the deep crawl?

Ann, sorry to hear they dropped. But I am still not seeing anything that usually indicates an update. Maybe in the morning the fog will clear. I'm headed to bed.

Beachboy, try www.yahoo.com

www = 665,000
www2= 642,000
www3= 642,000

Here's a huge clue this is an update...I had zero backlinks as a new site showing up in www....now I have 1,610 which is low if anything...I have at least that...I went number one for all my keywords and was actually hard to find before the update...this is defintitely IT!

BroadProspect,
in december I more than once had a website with 100+ pages crawled in toto by freshbot so you shouldn't wonder.

so , I would like to know if any of the members here see the crawl for the dance done with a 64.* address or all are seeing the regular 216.*
