Yup. Just checked WWW2 and saw a change in SERPs. Webmasterworld looks like its back up to 7 again too.
In 2 and 3 we've climbed over 3 positions in the top 5 for each of our top 3 terms! We updated the pages for each term just hours before the crawl too.
Fingers crossed that the main Goog URL reflects all these changes very shortly (one's showing up already).
I just hope the results transfer from www3 to www this time (and stay).
Edited (10 minutes later) - OK, now we are back to PR1 :(
I am not going to check again till late today.

Several sites missing, still good PR, but just not there in the dbase. They're on different ISPs as well.
Something of a strange one.
down 1 place, PR unchanged...but I'm making some BIG changes to the site and have very high hopes for next month
Just wondering 2 things though:
1. I've been seeing similar, although not quite as good, results on www2, and www3, and sometimes www since just prior to the LAST update, but the results were constantly switching back to the old serps every few days. Anyone else see anything like that?
2. Is it possible to know your PR on www2, and www3? Many of you are reporting a bump in your PR, but how do you know if your results aren't on www yet?
btw - I am also seeing much better results link wise on this update too. :)
Lisa, do site:yoursite.com "and a keyword here or preferrably your domain" without the commas ;)
btw dont think anyone has mentioned that the directory is also updated. (Last update I had a site in ODP that didnt go to Google....however its there now)
You are not alone... Trust me. Suddenly, this Friday seems like a Monday...
Any idea why prominently ranked sites on the main DB would up right dissappear this morning? We're not talking Spam, Affiliates, Cloaked or Doorways, etc. Legit, PR6 sites as of yesterday...
Now? Gone from all 3.
On one hand I have a site that had great rankings for a number of keywords. It seems that it has lost position for all of the terms in this update, which may or may not mean a PR0 penalty.
Then, there is a new site of ours that was included in the DB and has great rankings for a number of keywords.
These sites use the same strategies and methods. What gives?
frustrating! the homepage has a paragraph biography type deal with my name sprinkled throughtout, and the redirect only has one line " this site has moved to www.dj*******.com".
still not understanding!! :)
About 6 months ago I moved from a freebie site to my own domain. Even though all pages have a 7 second redirect from the old site, and all content has been removed, for one term i still rank higher under the old site, even though the "unique content" isnt there anymore
Its a tutorial part of my site. My suspicion is that link pop from related sites still point to that URL, forcing it to rank so high
If you dont own that site (this may not be a good thing to do), you could always do a link:thatoldURL, and tell everyone who links to the old page to link to the new onee......at least it gets rid of the old useless SERP you talk about, and also helps Google yeah? :)
Back to the update......for a majority of results, I see a lower # of SERP's. Is it viable to say that alot of people have had the boot this time round?
