January 2003 Google Update
The real deal.

 4:45 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

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



 9:56 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

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.*



 9:59 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Still penalty-tastic on my profile site and I've slipped a few places too. Blah. I'm off to bed. Not a good weekend! Bloomin' worm...grrrrrr


 10:00 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

The number of backlinks of my site hasn't changed but there are a lot of new sites crawled and in the the update.
Strange ...


 10:27 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

I'm seeing the bot all over my logs right now, started two days ago and in full force today.


 10:43 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)


All the sites that I have access to here are all deep crawl by the freshbot 64.* don't know why.

The other one came and grab index page once awhile.

My own very new site was deepcrawl by the freshbot for sure. Never by the regular 216.*.

Also, if it interest anyone here, dynamic IP address doesn't cause any problem. Googlebot came just one to two hours after I reboot my machine. So they do resolve correctly. Problem I face is because my client's site is already down one month before I took over. That is why it disappear from the index.

[26/Jan/2003:04:37:45 -0600] "GET /science_education_software/software_reviews/weather.html HTTP/1.0" 304 - "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)"

Last hit from the bot - well after the update started? - - [26/Jan/2003:04:54:49 -0600] "GET /science_education_software/software_reviews/oceans.html HTTP/1.0" 304 - "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)"

Still crawling


 11:28 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)
yeah its still going, hit this site on Saturday late and then again now? - - [26/Jan/2003:07:07:11 -0500] "GET /webpagename.htm HTTP/1.0" 200 9445 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)"

What's REALLY strange is the site got scanned this morning by
all three major engines at ONCE: - - [26/Jan/2003:03:05:17 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 200 41 "-" "FAST-WebCrawler/3.x Multimedia (mm dash crawler at fast dot no)" - - [26/Jan/2003:03:16:25 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 200 41 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)" - - [26/Jan/2003:03:20:44 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 200 41 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Slurp/si; slurp@inktomi.com; http://www.inktomi.com/slurp.html)"

The regular fast atw did a full scan yesterday too!


 11:20 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

I see by typing in the name of my websites at **** that my websites have made it in. Some of the terms I were going for are number 1 on some servers. Although on others I'm about no. 30

Is it far to early to look at the results now?

Thanks for your time.

It is far too early to _trust_ the results. You may throw a brief glance at your PR. And compare the SERPs for your most important keywords on the different Google datacenters: www-ex,
www-sj, www-va, www-dc, www-ab, www-in, www-zu, www-cw. And refresh them.

See any patterns?


 11:56 am on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

i see only www-sj, www-va, www-ab with updated results, the others are all old


 12:47 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

I seem to have exactly the same number of backlinks on ww2, ww3 even though there are new backlinks showing.


 1:23 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Hmm this update does not look good to me from 436 backlinks to 124 now and it seems that the new update does not like my smaller pages but I can not wright a 350 words text for every picture, it sad that you can not have a site with just a little text, but with a beutiful big picture, you know that a picture says more than a 1000 words, but not in Google.



 1:26 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

I'm not seeing it at all :-(

Same backlinks, same positions for a number of searches throughout wwwx.google.com.

Maybe its because I'm in Germany. I can't see why though.

Yahoo has the same number of backlinks on all three main servers.

Hmmm :-/


Need More Hits

 1:30 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

It looks to me like back links with a PR of 3 are now counting now
Or could this be juts a fluke from the dance?


 1:41 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

By applying what I learn here, my website has moved up from #13 to #9 last month, to #6 today in my main category keyword for 2.68 million results. The #1 position is definitely within my grasp. Many thanks to all for so generously sharing your knowledge. Stay up in 2003!


 1:48 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld sachac! ;)

Another lurker makes their presence known - in more ways than one.



 2:05 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Will the SQL web attack have any effect on the speed of Google's update?


 2:09 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Welcome and congratulations, sachac. Thanks for letting us know, it's always good to hear.


 2:10 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Yay... links to my site have more than doubled since last time :) (on www2 and www3)
/me watches his PR, to see if it does anything ;)


 2:26 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

I would like to speculate a little about the effects of yesterday attacks.

As we all know, page rank is also affected by the size (how many websites) there are on the web.

Does anyone think yesterday nightmare can reduce the "web size" that google uses for its calculation? Can this be possible?


 2:26 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

I have page changes showing in www2 that were only hit by the freshbot, 64.68.82.xx, i.e. changes done since well after the deepcrawl was finished with my site. Anyone else seeing this? (my apologies if it's buried in this thread somewhere already)


 2:37 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

I think it started lastnight at around 1am ish. I was doing some programmingi and searching google for another site i was doing SEO on when i noticed some strange stuff going on, like the number of pages google had indexed for a site of mine started to flux a little.

I thought that i was probably just seeing things as it was late. ;)

Looks like a was too lazy the last 2 months and lost a few spots on the SERPs. Time to get more links. Mel Gibson, can you change the name of your last movie because you're taking too many of the top 10 positions and making it difficult for me to get back into top 10. Hope the rest of you did OK.


 2:49 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Is this it? Or are we gonna see some more changes in the results?

I bet there will be some changes because the results right now are pure crap! At least for my keaywords...


 2:50 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Yes changes will occur for the next few days


 2:51 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Looks like we are in on page one Praise be to Google.


 3:06 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Can somebody tell me what the changed are after let's say 12 hours after the dance has started.

Every time when I check my positions on www2 and 3 during a dance I don't see any changed in positions anymore after a few hours, besides that the change of www itself.


 3:28 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Hi Frank

There are more than just those 3 databases. At the moment I have changes in 3 of the 7 servers that I'm checking. The dance is over when the results are the same right across the board.

Regarding the freshbot. My News page is in the new index with a Jan 12 snapshot showing in the cache. The new indexing is based on crawls done from early Dec through to mid-Jan. Very cool GG.


 3:43 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Wow I'm way up on ALL my big keywords... Looks like a very friendly update for my site.


 3:57 pm on Jan 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

google did a strange job of picking up backlinks this time. I amshowing links from interior pages of a site but not the home page (pr 7).
