Just Curious (anyone): Certainly it's been true for a while that backlinks are important (rationale: a more-or-less "unbiased vote" about one's site)...
So, if backlinks are so easy to add back in "quickly" (though trillianjedi pointed out two conflicting posts on that from GG)...WHY haven't they been added in yet?
Seems to me that G could have easily done that before the data centers started spewing out into the real world yesterday. Still testing maybe?
Makes me wonder what is really going on that's not understod yet.
so we are figuring that when our serps finally do go fresh on -sj/-fi, that it might be the start of something big whew whoo..
So right now, from this chair, we see:
One set of results on: -ex, -va, -dc, -in, -cw
Different results on: -ab, -zu
Different results on: -sj
Different results on: -fi
Maybe others have posted this and I've just missed...
too many for us. we're watching sj, fi, and www. our brains can't comprehend more than that. and sj & fi seem to be doing more sitting around and doing nothing at the moment than anything else(except maybe popping up here and there) .
don't seem to have moved much in content at all since there was a backlink injection days ago up to 617k, from 384k or so. like they were put on pause...
We (think) that we've already learned a few juicy tidbits about what G seems to be testing, by watching the differences between -sj and -fi. Now we see the possibility of another test emerging. More data, more learning.
When it all nets out, we'll HOPEFULLY be smarter about how G got there. That's the goal anyway, and so far so good :-). But hey, it could just be that we've lost touch with reality!
that is why were are looking for input:
does anyone see in signficant change in -sj or -fi in the last few days? does nobody want to share? we don't see any changes on them taking place recently.
since they are still not current with SERP (at least not with us) that might indicate if the stew still has more simmering before anything goes live....
we can't tell if it's Google changes and where would they be coming from, or just lighter web traffic in our keyphrases (course that never is been an easy one to gauge because apparently google has no tool to measure historical traffic on a given key phrase. not that we are aware of anyway).
thanks for the feedback.
we have been focused on -sj/-fi based on hints from GG, and at this point we are drawing the line at those two- along with watching www results. trying to keep any eye on every possible G center online that we can look at isn't practical for us.
maybe they will bring back the sub-domain type URL's that show the datacenter in the referrer URL. the ones we saw for a day or two a few days back. than we might have a more accurate picture of what results are showing for us and where, or not.
