Five days into it and it is almost over with index moving across the other 7 main data centers.
So far, 7 days into this PRE-DANCE:
The SJ data has not started to migrate to the other 7 main data centers. FI not included.
I have not seen sj results show up on www in over 3 days now.
www2 and www3 all are pointed to the IP of sj.
I've seen it mentioned that we have been privy to a part of the dance we normally don't see and I would be inclined to agree with that.
I don't think we will see the real dance start for a couple days at least. It's not a real dance anyway until all the data is applied, so I think we are all going to see a big shift from what the SJ server is showing and what will actually be in the index.
I find it funny that GoogleGuy has disappeared. I think they rolled out the new algo to get our opinions. Most searchers don't bother to fill out a satisfaction report. They just go somewhere else. In that respect, Google has a great asset in this community because they sure got a lot of feedback about what was on the SJ server. I think when the dance really starts in earnest, we'll see GoogleGuy show up again.
Anyway, back to work adding content for the next deep crawl

Yes. Truly bad. Almost unbearably putrid. OK, Google isn't quite that bad yet. However, they are getting worse.
The pork is first simmered for a long time to make it really soft and then braised in the oven to make it crispy. Since the recipe is very simple and does not involve any chili sauces everyone likes carnitas. You can add the heat on your own as you eat it
- long time
- but then really soft, after crispy (i.e. as you like it)
- no chili, so everybody likes it
- add the heat at your own
One I doubt:
the recipe is very simple
Yeah, all our sites are down on visitors from Google too but well up on other search engines, including a whole pile of visitors coming through from AltaVista which we very rarely see. There's no change in our positionings on the other SEs - we do very well on most, but don't see a lot of visitors. Maybe searchers suddenly aren't finding what they want on Google and are trying out other SEs?

I have never seen www2 to www migration take so long. So it is obvious, the www valve has not yet been turned (and may not be?). That sj was leaked and the www2 migration happened especially for Google techs to see what was said here (and elsewhere).
I wish I had enough money to buy Google. Because that is what I would do each dance time. First time, return just ffa pages. Next time, just hidden text pages. Then adult and email harvester / bulk send software sites masquerading as anything and everything else site. Then switch the real results on line onto www just as the prozac consumption rate here was at it's highest :-)

Maybe. But I think this is actually a mind control technique so we all walk along the street and every 2 minutes have a nervous twitch and say "G,g,g,g,g,g,g,g,google."
On behalf of maggots everywhere, I demand you withdraw that libelous comparison of them to this Google update. At least maggots serve a useful purpose in nature.
With a few hundred PHD's on staff - the "Prozac hypothesis" is as viable as any other put forward in the last week!
At the Sydney Australia SES conference about 6 weeks ago, Omid Kordestani of Google explained at length the 'monetization of search" I think you picked their new strategy!
Actually, the truth is my sites were only slightly dinged. While on the most important SERP the main site fell from #4 to off the radar, for some inexplicable reason the other site of mine went to #7 on that SERP. If what is on -sj now is the final update, I would only expect a small drop in traffic. This really isn't just a personal reaction based on how my sites are doing. Just disappointing to see Google doing such a rotten job overall, and their quality drop this badly. If what is on -sj is the next update, I'll be switching my home page from Google to Alltheweb.
You are correct. It is just my homepage. I see two new pages on sj that were never in the index before. (Is this significant in anyway?) P.S. Thanks for the company!
I'm also getting crazy results when I search the data centers for my best keyword phrase:
sj shows an internal page at #23,
ex, va,dc,ab and zu show me at #9 for a current version of my homepage,
in and cw show me at #9 with a very old version of my homepage
fi shows me at #4 for a completely different internal page
For me some small but encouraging changes in backlinks on -sj, which has got to be good news after the lack of movement over the past week. Yahoo's links are back up to 617000, and my own site was reincluded a few days ago after disappearing like so many sites, and now the backlinks have gone up a very little. Could it be that links are slowly beginning to be factored in?
