For the past year I have experienced periodically being completely dropped off Google. My site has been the FIRST of its kind and is in all the natural search results on the first spot. I'm just a small business, but since spet of 2004 I have been vanishing off of Google every 6 weeks or so--recently it has been more often and for longer periods. Does Google discriminate against Older sites? Are they doing it so that we will advertise with them? Any help, advice, comment from a desperate single mother of 4!

where is Google Guy to give us a feedback?

I think you missed the point.

You're the ones giving him the free feedback.

They tweak...if SEO's are happy, tweak again. If many SEO's are ranting then algorithm approved.

Keep it up.

I saw those 7 delicious piece of cakes covered with testy chocolate. Wow... someone celebrating a 7 years birthday. Who could that be?

If you left your mouse over the logo longer it would have told you who it was. It's been like that since 1854.

those dc's are mid update.
sites that were demoted heavily on those DCs are back up better that on www.
so its to early to tell what the outcome will be, but not to early to watch the process.

Sorry for my inexperience here, but I know my site has been penalised for dupe content.
My question is this:
If I correct the 2 pages which are the same will these pages regain their good position on google - or are these pages penalised for good?
I am worried the pages are penalised by URL and not by content so correcting them would be a waste of time.

Do the said DCs show the same serps as your own google.com (IP?) at the moment?

Thanks.

All dc's I can check are showing identical serps, and google.com shows the same.

In the last few weeks I have seen minor shuffling but that is it.

Right now it is 100% steady.

I am in the UK if that helps at all.

What has me most worried about this latest update is that is seems like the Google SERPS are placing pages with nothing more than links to other pages above the actual pages in the results.

I'm seeing quite a bit of this.

That says to me the filter either doesn't work properly, or is a bit too "tight" -- the result, for many, isn't only a downturn in traffic, it's pretty wacked results as well.

I hope this doesn't last, and not only for selfish reasons. I'd hate to have to train myself to start using Yahoo! for my searching. That sounds like a ton of work.

I Looked And I Searched
From DC To DC
And Today Just Like Yesterday
It Looks Like Everflux To Me.

Webmasters Make Changes
To Effect The Serps
And Then Start Screaming UPDATE
Blaming Big G As The Perps

Is It Live Or Is It Memorex
Or Changes Made By Thee
It's Day to Day Changes
It Looks Like Everflux To Me.

"we may have started but we aint done yet!"

IMO most of what I've seen so far is off-page stuff.

when is it time to call it an update tho?

of course it is the right idea to vanish spam out of the serps but this filter seems to be that kind of hard that it vanishes also clean pages out of the serps....

And due to this fact this uptdate was never the right step at the right time. A great mass of real spammers still have their positions they ever had while clean pages being removed...

I believe some Google engineers are now looking for some new job after this weekend...;-)

I'm still not seeing any huge changes on www though.
so this is way far from over, in fact its not even really begun yet.

Site scraping my complete site in a frame has taken my position for my most popular keyword. Also all other results are very bizarre, like site www.liveupdate.com/dl.htm which doesn't even exist! I just hope that all this update thing is just a joke.

I also vote for Katrina since she made a bigger mess ;-)

web_seeker: i don't think its really a comparison as much as a memorial and a metaphor, perhaps it is a bit insesative.

so Rita sounds good.
