Maybe the google tech team just uses sj to record a nice set of searches to see what areas are worth a closer look? It's easy for them to spread a rumor here and there so every seo aware webmaster starts to check his / her positions at sj - then they let spambot look over these results ... >:)
Another speculation: the sj algo gives more weight on spammy tactics to bring the fishy sites on top. Then spambot weeds out the garbage from the surface without digging around in deep results ...
I'd also vote for sj being a experiment. Makes my day easier.
But when I search for backlinks, I see only internal links. Anyone else seeing this?
Dont know what to make out of all this.
Some of our sites are in exactly the same positions in the SERPS that they were before, one has fallen by 10 pages (!) for no obvious reason - nothing spammy, no problems with it before, lots of new links that should've been picked up by now.
Another site that's been in the index for a couple of months has vanished from the first 30 or so pages from all it's keywords (was at no.1 - 2), but is still in the index buried very deep.
Two new sites picked up by Freshbot are included.
So from here it's some weird mix of old and new plus a couple of total disasters which are going to make me very popular with the sites' owners - I don't think! Ho hum.
I really hope this isn't the new index - I have to agree that from the results I've looked at, if this is the new index then spamming is the way forward :(
I thought people had said on this board before that -sj showed the old index...?
