When do you expect the next update to begin?

Also, between each update, how many times (on average) does googlebot visit your site?

Sorry about that..

The google dance tool said that bbc1 had -1 backlinks on www... then I refreshed and it said that CNN had -1 backlinks... i thought that was odd. how can you have -1 backlinks?

then the webmasters world waiting for google update tool had yahoo backlinks as blank....

I guess I still have a lot of learning to do about this dance thing..

A check on www2 reported no links for Yahoo! abour 30 minutes ago... a minute later it was back to 692K :((

Is it possible that they're going to go ahead to a nromal schedule, by having a series of very late updates (essentially skipping a month) instead of having two quick updates in one month?

It's already April 8th here in Japan and still we cannot say hello to Cassandra. It looks like Cassandra and Delphi will be twins (i.e. March and April update at the same time).

OK.. so other people are seeing the same thing (sorta, I saw no backlinks for www, not www2) in this thread and the other update thread.

I feel a little better then, at least it is something noteworthy, even if it is not the actual update.

This kind of erroneous behaviour means that the update (or the end of the world) is nigh.

Interesting one for all you Google-ites

If you search the 3 db's in Opera, you get slightly different results than you do in IE. Though the difference in Serp's is between the Browsers, and not the farms.

Last month on the 4th they said it would be with in 24 hours. Today is the 7th, though I don't think they will give us any hints as to when it will be, unless there is another search engine confrence before the next dance.

I just checked, and I am still seeing fresh tags. Bad news for those of you who want this update to happen soon. Looks like Google has let you down again with a very late update.

A little bird told me that Google is no longer doing a monthly update. Being the nice people they are, they're trying to give their competitors a better shot by being similarly inept.

Hey miteno, welcome to Webmasterworld.

For info about the update it's easiest for you to use the site search. It's all there if you spend a while reading around.

I'm starting to think that Google should everflux less and deepcrawl/update more often if it's a server issue. This get's interminable. Almost 5 weeks now, sheesh.

As the U.S. is doing in Iraq, Google is doing to the SEO's. They're playing the "mind game". They figure the best way to get rid of spam is to get rid of the SEOs. They want us to go nuts. They want us to jump off buildings. They want us to get jobs at McDonalds and K-Mart. I, for one, have gone back to visiting my old friend Jack Daniels.

When this "Google News" forum goes blank they'll know they've won. Only then will they proceed with the update.

it's killing me. My Sister-In-Law has a CD coming out from Warner Bros. on April 22nd. Due to the lateness of getting all the info bio, photos, etc. The site wasn't done until around March 15th. Somedays the freshbot has her site #1 or 2 other days it's just not there. Huge difference in my uniques from 120ish on days she's not in Google to 250+ when the site is.

I hope the update will come soon so it'll stick.

>My Sister-In-Law has a CD coming out from Warner Bros

WOW!

Congrats there liquidstar! Being signed to Warner Bros is an amazing accomplishment for any artist, I hope she goes multiple-platinum and you get to ride on her success!

By he way liquid you can probably get the effect you're looking for without the update, usually big news such as the one you're trying to promote will be caught by the freshbot! I wouldn't worry, the update will not be too important on your case.

This profession is too boring lately...we don't get to do nuthin new and exciting....Google is king and I kind a miss the old days of optimizing for 5 or 6 engines...sigh....

If they can't manage to update their index more often than every 5 weeks... keep optimizing for everything.

Since Jan 25, over 10 weeks ago, they have updated their permanent listings once. Since shortly after the early feb deepcrawl, after which nothing would appear in the Mar 6 update, slurp, fast, scooter, zyborg and others have been merrily finding my pages and putting them in their serps. I don't know if Google is just resting on their laurels or what, but if they control over 60% of the traffic, and they can't get around to doing an update more often than every 5 weeks, it's getting a bit shoddy. IMHO.

For the love of God GoogleGuy: PUSH THE BUTTON. Can't you see the mental anguish you are inflicting on webmasters? ;)
