Most webmasters won't notice much change, but I wanted to give folks some advance notice. If your toolbar display changes a little up or down--don't panic. :) The change I mentioned, plus things like having more pages crawled in our index, can affect the toolbar display. As always, the traffic and conversions you get matter more than how many green pixels the toolbar shows.
Over the next few months, I think you'll see more emphasis at Google on scalable algorithms rather than responding to individual spam reports--please set your expectations accordingly--but we are also putting more emphasis on reinclusion requests from webmasters.
As always, I'll try to be around to answer questions and offer advice.. :)
Could you clarify sir what this means: "One resulting improvement with this index is better handling of expired domains--the authority for a domain will be reset when a domain expires, even though dangling links to the expired domain are still out on the web." My concern is the following. A really juicy domain name I have been lusting after expires. I thus keep checking every day waiting for it to released by the registrar so I can grab it. After say 45 days it is released and I snap it up. This domain no longer is expired. Would I be able to get this domain in the Google index because it is no longer in expired status?
Hope that helps!
