This new "in and out" again algo at google.yahoo is a mixed bag of tricks. On the one hand my main domain has been kicked down, but on the other hand quite a few buddy links pages and hlc pages are now turning up with my description (better than my own description on google.yahoo). Quite a few people are clicking through those domains onto my site. Haven't seen any overall downturn, & traffic is actually up a little bit even though the old number 1 ranking page is now lurking in the 60's.
Recently have had some pretty thorough crawls of the separate link program pages, but I don't think these latest crawls have influenced what I see now in google.yahoo We'll see what happens over the next couple of months when all of the other participating sites get fully indexed.
