Now this is interesting.

A site with 40 000 "real" pages and some 80 000 duplicate content pages excluded using robots.txt (it's a forum - see my prior posts about vbulletin) and still some 80 000 duplicate pages that are not yet so excluded.

Additionally some 500 000 non-thread pages also excluded in robots.txt and most of those already delisted. The whole site is listed as www; nothing is listed as non-www at all.

Looking purely at indexed threads:

site:domain.com shows 90 000 www pages all as normal results; including some duplicate content that will eventually be excluded.

site:domain.com -inurl:www shows 24 000 www pages all of which are marked as Supplemental Results and all of which also have an old cache date. This search should show zero results. It certainly should not be showing www pages at all, the search was for "-inurl:www". What is going on?

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.

g1smd,

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

larryhatch,

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

......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.

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 :)

Hi,

In another thread someone reported that 66.249.93.104 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?

Best wishes

Sid

I now only see the results on 26 DCs.

Looks like they might be in retreat. Wonderful.

<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.

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?

I'm seeing a little different mix on 216.239.59.99 and 216.239.59.147 -- 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.

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.

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