Hi. I don't know what happened but my page rank just jumped to 7. Is it the update?

Yup. Just checked WWW2 and saw a change in SERPs. Webmasterworld looks like its back up to 7 again too.

Yep and it looks like they lifted a serious spam filter. I'm now seeing machine keyword generated gibberish showing up high in the SERPs.

Hmm. That seems awfully fast, don't you think? How long was that?

Assuming that these results are going to appear in the main www.google.com sometime soon, that was FAST! Well done Google!!

GG, Didn't you know that not even Google can escape Murphy's Law: If your late everybody b*tches and if your early nobody remembers when the last one was. . .:)

Yes, well done, Google! I am seeing some nice results on some new sites we have.

Hopefully the minimal PR assigned earlier in the month when some older sites came out of PR0 territory will be improved. Fingers crossed....

Definite here... but plenty of sites missing from it (not PR0, just missing).

This was a quick one. One of our members was PR0 for months, PR is back on all his pages and he's back at #1.

Oh - What frustration! It looks like another month not in the index for unknown reasons, while a competitor sits near the top with his hidden text - even after reporting it to google.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

We're #1 for our main keyword!!! Well, in www2 and www3 at least...someone please tell me this will probably carry over to the main directory.

Oooops, main www SERPS, not "main directory"...sorry got carried away there; this is the first time I've tried SEO as opposed to just shelling out for PPC. :-)

Maybe they are undoing some of the draconian filtering process?

Damn it, down to #3 now... now I have to think up something clever to keep up with the New York Times and the Boston Globe.

Links lost in the last big update seem to be back. The number of links on one site I'm monitoring had gone to 40% of normal. Now they're all back, and we've gained a few.

We're still not showing on the main www site...is it because we're new to Google? I hope we don't have to wait until next update to show. (We're on www2 and 3 now, though.) ???

stick around, it takes a while to settle down but if you're on ww2 and www3, you should end up on www, not necessarily at the same time as others report that their updates has settled on www, but soon after
