We're seeing google.com referrers coming through on domains that weren't previously indexed.

We had a good round in September for google.com listings, (our first indexing attempt), but still have not seen "ANY" of these listings migrate to the google.yahoo index. We were hoping that we would see some migration across to the Yahoo index when Google did their October update, but haven't seen it as of yet.

That is something outside of my experience, every domain listed at Google is listed at Yahoogle. "Migrate" may be the wrong way to look at it, I view Yahoogle as "filtered" Google, but what are they filtering for?

Just saw that Yahoo updated it's new google pages, and then about 30 minutes later I'm seeing google updating also. Had one new site crawled mid to late September and all those pages are now showing up in both google and yahoogle.
Preliminary results are showing that link pop and theming is playing a pretty good factor. I've seen a few of my pages which don't even have the keyword on a particular page listed in the top 10 for a related subjects/products.

Site submitted at beginning of Septemver was deep crawled by Googlebot at the end of september.

Only the default page has been included in this update.

RZ, you are positive that they aren't over in yahoo right now? Maybe buried real deep?

Really rare for me to find things in google and not yahoo - almost a 1-1.

Is anyone noticing a change in the Google Database this morning?
A good keyword that I just got ranked as number two is missing. It was only there for a few days, and I would venture that I should have stayed at least until the next update.

Yes same thing with my site. Two days of strong refers from my main KW ranked 12 now nothing. I'm gone!

Google seems to go through this shuffling period for a few days after a refresh. Sometimes you're in...sometimes you're out. It's like they are pulling from 2 data bases. It should smooth out soon. Can you still find the pages in Yahoogle?

You might want to check periodically several times a day for the next few days. Last month I found my pages less and less every day and not at all in Yahoogle. This month they are all back on most of my checks and holding firm in Yahoogle. I'm hoping this is a good sign.

My domains came back, at first I thought it was a problem with IE 5.5, because the other PCs in the office could see the domains. But after a reboot, the search results changes.

I know clear the cache, cookies, and temp files... but that did not fix the problem. A reboot did though...

The Google shuffle seems to be still continuing today.

This morning all of my ranks on top phrases that were in the top 5 completely had disappeared. Now, just checked and they are back. I thought the shuffle was over with but maybe not.

Movements definitely happening today. Some pages dropped from top, some other sites now climbed into top 10.
