It is clearly old data including old DMOZ entries that don't exist any more.
There is a LOT of new data in here as well though .. strange about the DMOZ entries, perhaps they are just testing the new algo on a cross-section of available data in that center? Funny that people would see the results on www.google.com though!
widget and widget.shtml
It was two deepcrawls ago that it happened and I though the googlebot noticed it in the last update and only listed each file once!
Oh well, geting double the hits for one month sure won't hurt! :) :) :)
is this the update where they stop counting backlinks under PR4?
It was 384,000 - just like he said - it is off my browser or I would do a screen capture

I'd still say with 99.9% certainty that it is NOT the update. GG is usually very straight with the folks at WebmasterWorld and is usually on-hand to confirm updates.
He says it 'aint so. I'll go with that for now...
I always check the datacenters - not this www2 & 3 stuff.
There is something different for the sj datacenter, but apparently this was the case before.
I have never noticed this not being the update before - and have watched it go from one datacenter to another in previous updates. Now that I have better things to do with my time - so I haven't been tracking this one.
Anyway to sum up:
1) I see a different number on SJ - and it appears to be a different index
2) I have never seen this before (in like 15 updates or more that I have watched) WITHOUT it being an update
3) Googleguy knows more than me
So I will go with number 3 and withdraw my agreement
He's just saying he's not ready to watch us all go bonkers. All my files that were deepcrawled for the first time in the last deepcrawl are now in the new index that's showing up.
And can some one try to explain why they would use www to do tests?!
He just said "Ugh. It's too early to start all this again"
He needed to be more precise and say: "The update hasn't started yet".
He may have just woken up and was voicing misgivings about having to read another thread so soon about the update.
Does "this" mean a discussion, or does "this" mean the actual update?
