One straw to cling to - when the penalty was applied it was right at the end of the dance, not at the start. Now where is that flying pig?
nutsandbolts...keep your chin up. We had(have) greyed out PR last month, but hopefully have made it back. There IS hope. Good luck, everyone.

I think its been up for 2 weeks so Google must take its time shifting the results to the front end ;)
not sure how well im gonna fare, not got enough history....but "biology"- the theme of the site is up from about 110 to 60 :) :)
nice one google, just try keeping up with me from now on :)
he has links to some other site on every page but this site isnt penalized. so it isnt linking to "bad neighbourhood".
Could it be this is though as "artificial linking"? Nah, it can not be, this would be TOTALY unfair. I am really interested what was the reason in this case.

Sorry didn't know its not OK to point out glaring holes in the algo (SERPS filled with the same site for pages long...)

1. New SERP's appeared on www2 today
2. www2 SERP's phasing in and out of www
3. Even more updated cache found on www.3
4. I think Google must be applying some parameters to account for the differences between www2 and www3 before they put it into www
Any thoughts? :)
....2 minutes later ...just to mess with my mind, www3 is now using www results with the most updated cache.
Should I keep blurting this out or keep it to myself ? :)
everything i talk is in www2.
1.the site that was duplicate is now showing only one page which is like expected since i removed all other pages. I dont know if it is pr 0 , icant isnatll toolbar on schoo lcomputer. I will ask someone to check it for me.
Waht is particualry suspicious here is that now this page is very simmilar if not the same as many pages that are in top 50 for particular term. So it is the same and it is still pr 0 whcih makes me think that pr 0 was not lifted whcih can mean that update is not finished, they do it manually or pr 0 was set for sometime period for this site NO matter what i do.They have crawled this pageand updated the listing since it is not only one page in index (all other give 404).Except pr 0 is still there i think (will check with someone and follow up here)
2.many pages that are showing in index show ONLY URL and no description- like it was when google crawled our site in the beggining. Maybe they relesaed penalty and in next index they will add desription. Will wait and see.
3. hm, link:mydomain.com command shows no results. it looks it is pr 0 after all.
But this gives me some hoep. will wait to next update.Another long month ahead of us.
Except something drastic changes in this months update(maybethey didnt come to my sites calculations)
for its primary keyword combo my main site is
2nd on www
3rd on www2
1st on www3
and for some reason the home page is listed as 1k bigger by www2
unfortunatly my boss has found out about www2 and www3 and always wants me to explain why there are specific differences on each one
I have started to tell him that its a 'black art' and no one really knows
which isn't really that far from the truth ;)

Can anyone shout who recovered their PR from PR0?
Andrey, just report it to Google through their channels. It's impossible for us to determine what is "shopping the competition", what is actual spam, what is just "misunderstood but ok", and "glaring holes" in the algo. That protects you as the other members. Thanks for understanding.
Deadlock, could it be as simple as the update wave through the various data centers? Currently, #2 has the football here.

The site that escaped didn't return to its former glory, but at leat its on the way.
Generally happy, got some good inbound links showing for other sites, which has given me some pluses. Some stayed stable very few went down.
Offerings to the Google Gods seem to have worked. :)

Jill, the site in the profile never had PR0. I had 2 other sites that got hit with PR0 which were confirmed by GoogleGuy that they were OK. But they still have PR0 in this update. Actually I just noticed that one site had its home page PR grayed out with all other pages having PR0. And the other site has all its pages including home page retaining its PR0.
Here is hoping that this update is not finished yet although that hope is fading away fast!. Looks like one more long month of wait and then who would know what will happen!!
