---- Graybar - Myths and Facts
anallawalla - 9:21 pm on Oct 8, 2008 (gmt 0)greybar on one browser; white/green on another = probably a data centre issue for toolbarqueries.google.com. If you are worried, hard-code one of its IP addresses in the hosts file and then compare the two browsers. If they now are the same, delete that hosts entry and start worrying about adding fresh content or the economy. white/green pixels change to greybar for a day or two = Wait, don't slash wrists. Check your site and backlinks. Check the panic level in this forum - thread > 4 pages means you need to read what the mods are saying. white/green pixels change to greybar for a fortnight or two = Sla.., er, wait. Stronger possibility of a penalty. Check if any pages are still in the index. If some are, then it's a new algo. See what others are saying, as the WW thread is probably 15 pages by now. white/green pixels change to greybar for three months or more = probable ban. You are probably not in the index at all, which confirms it. You probably know what you did wrong. Fix it or move on and start a new site with a new plan. If the green pixels increase or decrease = no big deal, as your traffic has probably not changed at all.
I agree with Quadrille that the TBPR is useful as a barometer. Its best use is the greybar vs white/green pixels test:
The reason for the "the TBPR value is 3-4 months old" myth is that the TBPR used to be updated 3-4 months apart and perhaps on the last day before the update it could be that old. I can't be bothered checking when the previous update (before this one) was, but I think the update interval has shortened to 1-2 months apart.
