it's been that way for a while with google, they do a 'rolling update' that goes out from one datacenter to another, after it gets built.
With that many pages, and that many smart people working there - it only makes sense to figure they have found / or will have a solid way of workin gon 'rolling updates' in the future more, and less reliance on the monthly updates of the past.
At least, that is all my opinion from the bits & pieces here and all the google articles.
I believe Craig Silverstein said something like that at one point about the weekly / or what not updates.
And here, we talk about 'freshbot' all the time - it only makes sense that, on any given moment, you could go to 1 datacenter - and get different info than from another.
The dataservers jump back and forth during the month because of the freshbot.
It doesn't mean a thing!
The update will happen when it happens and we will all get to see the results then.
I have never seen backlinks change by a factor of 2 or more on any single Datacenter Server unless there is algorithm testing or a new update coming out. I think most can vouch for that. All we are saying is that the changes are interesting. This board is for open discussion, not insults and sarcasm.
