Anyone else seeing this?
Yes..and I agree with Netmeg ..AlyssaS observations and analysis of the "non ads" part of the panda ..particularly in relation to multiple listings is very very close to what I'm seeing and have been seeing for a while..and it definitely is not done yet..we are going to be dealing with this being refined all year..and maybe beyond.
the system has changed radically.
There appears to be a lot of A-B ( and A-B-C etc ) testing going on ..certain KW or KW1+KW2 searches get different serps depending on time of day ( appears still to be cycling around 12 hours ) ..and the number of results returned oscillates ..but rarely moving much from what appears to be a set upper and lower limit ..the top position moves on each swing ..but there is waay more movement from positions 2 to 5 ..and again from 7 to 10 ..( I'm not looking at page 2 because IME average surfers don't do so enough for me to be interested )..there is some junk gets put in sometimes ..but 12 hours later it is gone...and it isn't always the same junk..it isn't broken its morphing .
