As I believe I may have said a couple of days ago, I didn't think Google's update was a simple "swap the directories and there you go" instantaneous kind of thing, but rather a long propagation process that would take days. For the first time in years I might have been right!
Well best of luck to all of you - we all work hard for reach and frequency, and Google obviously works hard for interest and relevancy.
Maybe now I can get some sleep...zzz
My wife went to bed about an hour ago. I told her the dance had started and her reply was "don't try to lead" :) Yes, I have two left feet :)
Now for all of you who have "ways you won't share" to determine the early signs of the start of the dance. I have one that 100% proof.
Every day when we put our son to sleep, he asks my wife and I what we will dream of. About a week ago, I told him "the Google dance".
Tonight, he told me (8PM EST) he was going to dream of the "goo-goo dance". There we have it ladies and gentlemen. No need to check every 5 minutes, next time my son says this, I'll post it :)
Thanks for the soothing words. :)
I'm sure everyone _____REALLY_____ appreciates the time you take to post here.
Major Kudos to GoogleGuy for taking the time to talk to us anonymous little folk!
And...thanks for pushing that shiny red button finally! ;)
I picked up on some good Top 20 SERPs since last update.
Now we can go to bed here on Eastern US and wake up to a shiny new Internet world. :)
I see the same results on www2 as www but www3 has changed.
Is what you see on www3 what you will end up with on www when it migrates over?
Or could i expect changes in my rank? Results on www3 show a drop of 3 positions....nothing dramatic but dissapointing if it stays that way. Oh well, as they say.....keep adding the content!
Also, how long do you think we have got to add new content b 4 deep crawl?
And Good Luck everybody!
One of my backlinks that is showing up is a PR3 page. I thought it was commonly believed that a site had to be at least PR4 to show as a backlink in Google. Is this something new with this update, or have others noticed this before?
NickCoons, I had a PR2 backlink listed during the dance last month, when the update was completed it was a PR4.
The listings look like this:
All of the pages were done on the same template, all of them were uploaded around the same time.
Why would some of them get indexed correctly yet some of them have this odd looking result?
In old database www.domain.com/links.php?op=visit&lid=11 was counted as a link to my site and others I watch. In new database all references to this type of link I have seen disapeared. Thats a shame. Not sure if it's just the particular site the links are coming from or if this is part of an algo switch.
