Seeing something happening on 64.233.163.104 and 64.233.167.104 - might be worth keeping an eye on.

You-all would be happy if I had a scraper site... but I don't.

250 pages down to just 12 in 10 days.

<added>
Oddly the site finally appears for the company name in 15th position above all but two scraper sites. First time in 3 months.

Minor update? No.

A search through many categories we watch, that are heavily worked by scraper sites, found no scraper sites 20 pages deep.

I wouldn't say they are all 'hidden'. But, we couldn't find any 100% bonified scraper sites in the list of categories we watch.

Any one see them gone form your chosen nitch?

****** [64.233.167.104...] **********

I am floating in my dreams.

My site has jumped a long distance in 64.233.167.104

But hope this is a real update....

So far no real changes in usual google searches.

europeforvisitors,
is your site back where it was?

I've checked two data centers that others have mentioned as having changes, and I can't see anything different at the moment. My rankings, backlinks, and site: listings all look identical to what I was seeing a few days ago.

In cases where I rank near the top, the pages ahead of me are the same ones that I've been seeing for quite a while, too.

Am I the only person here who wonders if Bourbon may turn out to be week-old iced tea? :-)

Despite acquiring numerous links... grumble.

hmmmm...maybe there is a silver lining here...during the "minor shuffle" i went way up before i went down. going down now...maybe that means i will go up this time.

Nothing change in last 7 days except one of the subcats showing the URL only. However, the traffic on this subcat increases about 20%. Does anyone know how long it last once the pages started showing the URL only?

Finally out of the sandbox, 11 month and 4 page jackings (and subsequent removals) later!

Finally showing on the first page (positiong 4-5 for my main keywords).

Praying that this sticks and migrates soon.

Moved up 5 positions to the top of page two. One new link found in this update. Whoop-Dee-Doo. Also, my site's not been indexed since the 14th! Maybe I'll see some more changes once Google gets around to finding my new links and re-indexing my site... I hope.

I'm not seeing a lot of movement for my sites BUT, that really doesn't matter because the scrapers in my niche are having THE WORST DAY EVER and I couldn't be happier. No scrapers in the top 50.

Way to go GOOGLE!

Off to have a 'Bourbon' and Coke ;)

For those friends which sites, like mine, have been affected by allegra (lost much traffic).

I see a change in entry pages pattern of Google´s referrals to my site. The current pattern (which could change any time of course) resembles to great extent the pattern before allegra.

No big change in the amount of Google traffic though.

Any of you has noticed the same?

Thanks!

My sites really haven't moved any but I have to say this is the absolute cleanest update I've ever seen as far as quality sites coming up in my area. I'm not seeing spammy content which is generally sprinkled in here and there. All legitimate, quality content with a few affiliate sites but they are pretty good ones. My hat off to Google. Looks to be an update that will be well done!

How ironic!
Google Update is called Bourbon.

It looks like SEOMIKE was right on the money.

Oh my.. the other day when I said my site went up 200 positions on one datacenter... now its up about 235 up to #15 finally on:

64.233.161.104
216.239.39.104
64.233.179.104

And up to #29 on 64.233.167.104 while most others hover around 70 something.

Not too sure what the cause of this is... *cough sandbox* but hopefully it stays this way and only gets better.

Still in the sandbox, other site still penalized.

The only Bourbon I see will be coarsing throughout my veins very shortly.
