Don't worry the update is on. I think like said before there are some technical difficulties being resolved. We should see it back up in no time.

somebody at google just leaned over to his buddy and said 'Watch this' - it's the online equivalent of poking a stick into an anthill. :)

OMG I was sitting hear laughing out load after reading that. I couln't stop giggling like a little girl. My girlfriend comes in and asks what Im laughing at. I started to try and explain but she didn't get it. Man I need a life :P

OK everyone, move along, move along, nothing to see here. Yall gonna crash WW again.

It's interesting how we sit here and watch the update as it unfolds, second by second.. while the majority of internet users are out there have no idea what's going on, and this has no impact on their lives, or very little.

"Uhh.. who's updating what, you say?"

The rotten thing is I was the first to spot it, and I have yet to have it show back up again for me to check on my sites. :(

I bet you that the Google techs are slaving away freaking out about it not pushing more than we are.

It's back and OMFG THE SPAM IS OBSCENE!

I could spend the next few days just writing spam reports. I'm talking single keyword search here (early in the update, I know) and a good 15 of the top 30 are spam/deeplinked spam... /sigh

This was a good update for one of my PR4 sites.. previously had 2 backlinks, now at 34, and some of those are from the site itself, which means the subpages have at least PR4, and the index probably went to PR5.

The downside is I'm stuck in suspense because I happen to be on a computer where the Toolbar PR display doesn't function properly. Now I've gotta wait at least half an hour before I can see.

daroz, the main change for this month was better handling of expired domains, but we'll definitely check it out if you send in a spam report.

Hope people enjoy the update; I think we've got better coverage of dynamic urls this time, too. Let me know how well we crawled your sites..

I see one of my very recent entries to DMOZ has a directory link -- but I don't see the new directory on-line... Anyone know where that might be dancing?
