I'm starting to see the dance! Anyone else noticed anything?

Its funny, though. www3 is showing more results for my search term than either wwww or www2, but www2 has more links to my domain.

Overall, it's looking better, however the all important index page has created a problem, it was listing #2 for one keyphrase and now slipped to #3, due to a slight change, which has also made it rise with other keyphrases, what a bummer !

Should i change it back or leave it.

We still see the same stuff on www and the new results on www2 have not gone live for us yet. We did notice however that one of our sites that when we looked yesterday was listed #9 on www2 is now listed #5. :) We'll take that!
<update>
Just checked my logs and our traffic has significantly increased. Looks like Yahoogle has updated. I was never sure just how many people used that portion of Yahoo! but I may find out this go-round!</update>

I wouldn't think the update is final since none of the results that we saw changed in www2 have made it to www yet. Anyone else have any input?

Has anyone else noticed anything strange from YahooGoogle? I had a portion of my website that I deemed off topic, and so had broken off all links to it a few months ago, planning eventually to delete it.

Google has, of course, left it out of the index for the past few months. Its not now in any of the dancing indexes or the main index.

Well starting about the same time as the dance, I've started to get traffic from YahooGoogle to those pages. A quick check reveals that Yahoo is using a three month old index.

Can anyone else confirm?

Does anybody know which google results are the ones that will eventually stick.
At the moment I see
1. very good rankigs of my site on www2.google
2. www.google and www3.google are showing the same results but worse rankings for my site than www2.google
3. yahoo-google is sometimes showing the best rankings but sometimes it also shows preupdate results.

I also noticed that the only results that have been consistent for the last three days are www2.google.com

Thanks

I do not believe it is possible to tell (if it were - there would be no need for the shifting).

I am more excited if I see a listing that is good that has the most amount of results AND is recent (by looking at the cache or Title if you have changed it) - or that is the same for all four.

Other than that - I think you have to wait and see.

My 2 cents

They are the same with regard to sequence, but there are less pages returned for a given search on yahoogle than google proper. Same relative ranking, but they'll appear different numerically.

In either case, in my opinion it is very frustrating to see your business at one moment being #10 and ten minutes later it's nowhere to be seen. Can you imagine owning a commercial real estate property and next day you come and it is not there any more. These issues are some of the major flaws of Internet business models in general.
