Just saw the gray "English" thing has returned. Did anyone ever determine the significance, if any, of its departure and re-appearance?

As far as I know, it only appears when you access a datacentre directly by its IP address.
| 10:44 pm on Jun 11, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I have been tracking 69 datacenters directly by IP address and it just disappeared over the last couple of days and now has come back. Frankly, I just don't get it;)

In my narrow niche, 'new' results appear on 26 out of 55 DCs : 47.3%
The other 29 DCs have the previous (and better IMHO) results.
This looks like a small retreat from Friday, when 'new' was slightly over half. -Larry

Could you please either post the DC's IPs or sticky them to me? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone have any idea when to expect a back link update?
| 2:37 am on Jun 12, 2006 (gmt 0)|
coming back now?
i see them on 28 DCs.
......DC watching is so stupid and futile.

......DC watching is so stupid and futile.
Then why are you watching them?! The funny thing is earlier there was a thread about how stupid it was as well and yet those results that us DC watchers see have been and continue to be showing up on Google and it's sister portals. If it's really that stupid then how about not contributing your two cents here?!
Sorry if I'm being a little direct but when people state that DC watching is futile and stupid it offends me because I watch it religiously and it indeed has never proved worthless to any of my sites that I've watched the last few years through the course of the many updates.
| 3:27 am on Jun 12, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I don't think DC watching is stupid at all.
If my traffic falls to a fraction of its former rate, I want to know why, period.
I could just call Google and see my places in the SERPs, IF there was only one DC.
Since there are dozens, <tool sites> are the only way to see if a new algo is spreading or whatever.
Futile? In one way maybe. We cannot directly influence Googles algorithms and their propagation.
We CAN look for subtleties in the 'new' serps, possibly making adjustments for those.
If that does any good, I can't call it futile. -Larry

i can see 30 DCs now showing new results, so looks like they're coming back.
and the stupid and futile comment was alluding to the fact that i cant keep a straight face when posting DC watch results :)

Good morning all
still seeing new results on 30 DCs but i am seeing no fluctuation on any f my sites regards page rank dunno whats happening to everyone elses.
| 7:34 am on Jun 12, 2006 (gmt 0)|
well, there definitely is a change...
my one-year old site was not even in the first 2000 last week, now it's at an all time high at page #17! break out the champagne... LOL!

In another thread someone reported that 184.108.40.206 is showing the old results but in fact they are more like some reults I saw a few weeks ago.
On that DC for my main target 2 word term there is a site which is there by virtue of having bought many backlinks from unrelated topic pages which use that term in the link text. There are two lisitngs with inset secondary pages and a few review and directory type sites in the top 20. Many of my serious competitors who should be there are not there, there's a smattering of authority but the omission of some serious competitor sites is unfair to both the site oweners and Google users. We remain at #4 but what is around us is less relevant than the old results where we are at #4 and nowhere near as good quality in the new results where we are at #1.
On the new results we move to the top but other good sites that should be there also rise into the top 10.
Are we seeing a third set of results or has one of the two changed significantly?
| 9:45 am on Jun 12, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I now only see the results on 26 DCs.
Looks like they might be in retreat. Wonderful.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but it's my first poste here :o/
Where do i find a coplete list of all the datacenters?
| 10:02 am on Jun 12, 2006 (gmt 0)|
<snip> has 55 DCs you can check.
i've seen them fluctuate between 25-31 DCs - can't really say at this stage whether or not they are retreating or propogating further.

I think they are still tweaking. I see pages pop up and disappear again.
I would not be surprised if the results go back to the old results again but I'm sure there will be an update soon which will propagate these new results in a fine tuned version.

i am still seeing these new results on 30 DCs don't know whats happening I think they are still tweaking and they are jumping on and off of some DCs will just have to wait and see it will all settle down and then we can make better judgements of what has happened.

Is google interested in having good results at TOP10 in their competitive searches?
Google is testing new results, but... what impact have them into advertisings? What CTR have them with the new results set?
Do you think that better results will lower CTR in advertisings (and google revenues)?
And more important: What google will do?

Uhhh! :)! :) just show for a split of a second the biggest scam ("authority site ")I have reported as one of the biggest spamers on the web ,disappeared at my default .com .Well he was back after a few seconds (but if you see even for a minisecond something that is not your fantasy) it means that something real is goin on ,I guess ..

I'm seeing a little different mix on 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 -- for one KW these DC's give the "new" results; but for another KW they display results that are very similar to, but slightly different from, the "new" results. I noticed because one site I'm interested in drops from #4 on the new results (it's #5 on the old results) to #19 and the listing is for a deeper and slightly less relevant page.

I agree totally - it's only a matter of time.

Well whatever they do, I can't see it being any worse or better than what is around.
Loads of huge sites, buying links, spammy sites are dominating my sector.
If they are buying links, I'm gonna sell them and make me some pocket money.

Just wondering, why it took you soooooo long to figure it out :-)

You just go ahead and make some $$$$ for the kids university costs. Just don't tell anybody that I have suggested that :-)
