Google Backlinks revert
On google.ca

 1:55 am on Apr 21, 2005 (gmt 0)

Hey guys,

I've noticed old backlinks numbers just at this moment on google.ca. Strange to see old numbers up, but you know when you track your backlink numbers, you recognise the old numbers for sites you monitor?

Anyhow... it might be Google reverting back to an old version; the chance of a backlink update; or just another one of Google's evergrowing list of bugs. *shrugs*

Anyone else have any ideas?

Hey Everyone,
I love this forum but I'm an amature compared to most of you. So my questions may seem naive.

Is there any tool or method to detemine when Google will makes it's next update?

I add new pages daily - they get indexed quickly.

I add new links but they have not shown up.

PRs have not changed.

Any wisdom you can share?

Hi, does anyone know if there were big changes to google last thursday/friday as since then traffic on 2 of my sites has dropped off a fair bit. I am sorry if this has been written about elsewhere, i just cannot find it...

I am able to get my site indexed on yahoo within a week of launching my brand new website. I am just wondering i made lot of changes after that and now i am not sure how can i get my site updated in yahoo SERP's.

Other thing i have read at lot of places Google is very conservative in listing/indexing new site (it takes 3-6 weeks), Is this true .... i can't believe this, in such a competitive world Google is being so rude in listing new sites..

pleas post your inputs.

Not to try and start a PR update frenzy but to my surprise this morning I found that my pagerank updated. This site has held the same PR for months now.

I tried posting a thread re: whether or not anyone noticed significant movement in the serps today and for some reason my "just curious" comment got tossed into this thread. Anyway, it looks like some type of updating is going on, at least from my perspective. How many people are noticing significant changes, if any?

Just saw the jump and then back to normal also. We went back up to a PR 6 after being knocked down to a PR 4 for months. Probaly just flux but I don't see it in the pr that much.

PR is in the process of updating right now.

Since this topic has gone completely off-topic, might as well add to the mess and agree with Donna.

YES! There is a pagerank update in process :D

Backlink update on:

Yep, got a few Google Alerts with link:

Looks like something of a backlink update from here

I've got my PR back wooot,
after having a supplemental index problem, then being let back in around December the site has finally been given its old PR, i'm still seeing three different link totals for the site but interestingly enough the DC's that were showing zero links have now been updated to somewhere between the other two sets of figures.

Maybe now the sites that have ‘robbed’ my title and snippet on some pages, will finally disappear.

Me too observed backlink update from 0 to 5 all of sudden. Isn't it strange but anyways good for me.


 5:46 am on Apr 22, 2005 (gmt 0)

uhhh...i dont see anything. does anybody have a datacenter that shows a pr update?

by the way..thats not a backlink update either..it's an old dataset

No, you are wrong - that IS backlink update.
