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

I just wondered if the results were this erratic for anyone else.
Also, www is spitting out old versions of my homepage.
I don't have access to my server logs. Is there a way to see the latest cache dates? It used to be available in the actual results. It hasn't been lately.

I, like a lot of people are confused about the goings on on sj and fi. We've never seen the likes of this before.
You have commented that the data on sj will work it's way onto the other data centers and recent backlinks and filters will be added later.
Did I get it wrong? Are you in fact adding in all the new backlinks and filters before the data will be spread to the other datcenters? I think a lot of people would feel happier if you could clear this up.
Looks to me like Google's new algo might be biased to reduce some PR status gained from 'professionally' created backlinks based on knowledge of Google's strategy - like from you guys!
Higly doubt that. All of my backlings were legit. Most were from articles in the press and from other orgs pointing to us spontaneusly. Maybe only 30 or so are from "please add me to your links page" type of thing.
I imagined that that was what was keeping my home page out of SERPS but no, that is still not there - it comes up on a search on the URL but not on a site search for the domain , although thousands of others do.
I'm relaxed - but it is slightly weird that a link search finds links to a page that doesn't itself appear!
Please shed some light regard to the missing sites / pages. Even just say "If you site are not showing up on sj or fi right now, it's likely not going to be in this update and it could mean it's a spamming site." We will appreciate that. At the least, we don't have to keep drinking and wait for this forever coming upate which is the dooms day of ours, life gets move on...
Your are not alone as all people have 'missing backlinks' because the links are pulled from an old index 2 months ago.
You didn't LOST those missing links, if luckly, google might put them in in this coming update, the real dominic. But I doubt. So, I am quite sure they will be included in the next update (the next one after dominic).
So everybody stop worrying about the backlinks missing because everybody is the same. Even Yahoo, CNN, and Google themselves...
