Guess what, after the recovery on Sunday Goggle has gone and gave the SERP's in the UK a good ol'shake again and guess what. The brown scum is back on the top and the decent content filled pages are no where to be seen.
I have never belived this "2 days on 2 days off" talk, just simply because I couldn't see a company like Google doing that. Surely what we all want is consistant results. That way the users (searches/customers) know exactly where to find what. At the moment one day you find good results the next its all gone crazy again and the page that was number 1 is now on page 5.
Thanks Again Google, Your The Best! NOT

Google now is just an endless array of experiments in many sectors.
One of Google’s engineers quite a while back stated they never wanted webmasters to become dependant on earning a living with Google results. Even though he never said it I believe “it goes without saying” the one true exception was them.

Yes, and technically, they should be hit with the "950" as well (assuming dup. content is one of the factors or a major factor in the algo). After all, their entire index is essentially scraped and although, realistically, you can't get their service - in terms of it's breadth - anywhere else, in machine/algo-speak, they should be flagged too for having "nothing original of value).
(Obviously, my message should be taken tongue-in-cheek :))

Anyone noticing further changes?

Yes, our sites our going up in the serps for the keywords and we are seeing affiliate sites in our sector continue to get hit hard.

Not noticing any changes in SERPs for my sites, still our site is ranking with the same position what we were since 4 weeks.

Still two massively diverging result sets floating about, one has 1/3 more pages indexed. Other server that got hit in December seems o tentatively rising again.

absolutely no change here ... still at 1/10 of normal google traffic...

The site with the funny result sets does not change in traffic, this might be cause they switch so fast, it's not really noticable as it averages out during a day.

Interestin change - however I can't say that it wasn't like that before:
Most of the keywords I am ranking today have a cache date which is at least from the 25th...
| 5:55 pm on Jan 31, 2007 (gmt 0)|
and one more:
there is one datacenter which has constantly other results for me then all the others: 126.96.36.199
| 6:01 pm on Jan 31, 2007 (gmt 0)|
Still in the crapper.
Traffic seemed to go up slightly last night, but this morning the trend has definitely not continued.

one more thing that looks promising:
checked my main keywords today - there is no change in traffic. however, all my best going pages (before dec 17th.) have now cachedates which are at least from the 27th of january.
also, it seems they climb up in the dc's for their keywords. no big jumps here, just 4 - 8 steps (142 from 150 and the like).
it *could* be that there is something coming up. i dare to say it will - but for sure there is a certain smell in the air...
(hope someone can backup that)

Same in my case.
One day is climbing,next day is back.

The failure rate has definitly increased in Google Inc. I had sitemaps video stats, gmail and so on failing just recently.

A large number of our pages have gone supplemental, we are getting more and more hits from forums than we ever had before, perhaps people are changing the way they search for specific information.
News is not working this side of the world either.
