It would be opportune, but with the recent crawl schedule, something tells me it is going to be a bit delayed this month - maybe next moth actually.

thanks for the input brett!

Yep, I got hit by Freshbot today and, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't it usually stop about 4/5 days before the update?
| 9:15 pm on Feb 25, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I usually see old cached pages up a few days before the dance.
| 9:16 pm on Feb 25, 2003 (gmt 0)|
we got pretty close to a full walk the last week.
| 9:26 pm on Feb 25, 2003 (gmt 0)|
February doesnt have as many days either, so I think it might be early March.
| 9:28 pm on Feb 25, 2003 (gmt 0)|
That would be a good start to March and all I would need is it to get alot warmer in New York!

maybe google is just waiting for the directory update

Brett may have a point. The deep crawl was later than usual this month. This might point to the update being later than usual.

Nick W is right. When you don't see the freshbot/freshdates anymore, then an update is condition "Red." (update imminent).
| 9:51 pm on Feb 25, 2003 (gmt 0)|
really would love to see freshbot come and visit one of my new sites. deepbot hit in a couple weeks ago but nothing since. any words of comfort :-?
| 10:00 pm on Feb 25, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I haven't been seeing the freshbot on a few sites that always get hit. It's been a couple of days.
My guess is the update will occur this weekend.
Brett, although right about most things did predict last months update to be Valentines Day :)

If they don't break the month by doing it in March then thurs/fri would fit with how they were doing it pre 'holiday' style..
| 10:12 pm on Feb 25, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Last month was the superbowl update -> so, if they do it early March, that would be 'march madness update'...
The 3 before that were holidays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then New Years.
March Madness would make this the 2nd sports one...so, if the trend continues, what comes after that - the kentucky derby?

Amen to that, hightraffic10, let's have it a little warmer in NYC but I suppose we won't get that lucky. More likely it will snow again!
The thing that puzzles me is that it isn't so much that the crawl was late this month, I experienced a normal deep crawl at the usual time of the month. It is more that the crawl was quirky. It seemed to suddenly stop and then days later pick back up again. Couple that with unusually deep freshbot crawling and the new IPs in use, and you have to wonder what Google has up their sleeves this time around.
Actually that's why I'm going nuts waiting for the first sign that the band is tuning.

We missed the Daytona 500. Maybe MLB opening day.
| 10:57 am on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
MLB opening day?
| 11:00 am on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Maybe March 1st: National Pig Day and Peanut Butter Lover's Day
or March 3rd: National Anthem Day

St Davids Day. A special Welsh Theme Update.
Is there anyone at Google called Dave. Come on Dave press the button!
| 11:50 am on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Ahhhh.. Now you've gone and Leek [walesatheart.com]ed the Story!
| 12:16 pm on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Nice page Nick but surely the PR should be higher. Maybe Welsh sites will be richly rewarded this time.
I think the update will be today. I have nothing but ice-thin evidence for this but all the knowledgeable types are predicting it won't be till March and Google doesn't like to be predicted.
| 2:05 pm on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I'm getting hit by freshbot right now - so maybe in 4 or 5 days?
| 2:08 pm on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I still say today.
| 2:53 pm on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
They won't update on a wednesday - crawlers and wed don't mix well.
| 2:56 pm on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Brett, according to your update history table there have been 5 updates on a Wednesday. (but keep on saying it. Then they will have a chance to surprise us!)

>maybe google is just waiting for the directory update
I sure hope not.
When was the last RDF dump?
| 3:35 pm on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Last RDF dump I believe was on the 14th of Feb. They've fixed the problem.

Now it will only takes 7 months for Google to update their directory.
| 3:50 pm on Feb 26, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Directory will probably be updated very soon.
I see some big changes in the -sj directory.
