I just checked all 9 datacenters. Only -sj and -fi have the new index.

abcdef:

The only change we've seen on -sj or -fi since this all started is a site which has vanished from both (no obvious reason) came back on -fi a few days ago, a couple of places down from normal. No other changes for any of our sites.

Something a bit strange happening on www is a couple of sites are showing several month old versions, but were freshed 11th May and are showing their current versions on
-fi. (Shrug....)

It's my opinion, but I believe these dominic threads are pure nonsense and a waste of time.

It's no use. Me and 100 other people have been saying this (well, something like this) since like part 2. We are now well into part 9. Seinfeld was the show about nothing, this is the thread about nothing. Seinfeld lasted 9 seasons I think, we are now in part 9 of this thread... hmmmmm....

Thanks

Perfection, sounds like you and 100 other people didn't learn much from the differences in the various data centers? Bummer. Then again, there's still time if you hurry... :-)

I'm still seeing the old index in www here in Chicago. There has been no sign of the fi or sj migration to www. Lucky for me. I'm still missing from the sj and fi indexes.

Wackmaster, speculation aside, what have you learned from this that will help you with your sites?

I hope w/ all this speculation there will be a rolling update so that there are daily or weekly minor changes rather than one big one with us obsessively checking WW every couple of hours to see what's going on.

3rd Datacenter

www-CW

check it out and post your comments here. I want to know if it is SJ or FI!

It doesn't have any backlinks. SERPs is different.

Looks like FI with fresh dates from 14th at the moment.

I think its closer to SJ than FI...interesting that it has fresh dates.

Krapulator > I think its closer to SJ than FI...interesting that it has fresh dates.

For my search terms, it's closer to FI, with slight changes in SERPs probably due to freshbot.

-cw is different and -ex is different for my keywords

-ex is like yahoo, eliminating double URLs -cw has a completely different ranking and lists more pages from my site

-ex is like www when its not showing -fi

none is like -sj or -fi

that applies to a very small selection of keywords I checked just now

I have switch to CW for PR checking.

By the way, I notice it is a combination of SJ and FI. I have been suspecting FI with some kind of duplicate contents filter. I have a competitor who have a similar title with me. In this case, EITHER one of us will appear with the keywords we are competing. The loser will be buried 1000000 away.

I wish I am wrong. I hope everything will appear like SJ. I don't want anyone to drop out because of a similar title.

Hmmmm, everything in CW has been switch back to old index.

Why izzit there are so many strange things happening for this update?!?!?! It is freaking me out.

Movement in -cw in the UK for me too. The results are slightly different from -sj and -fi

I can confirm that aswell. CW now has something very similar to the FI index.

Just checked and it appears www2 and 3 have finally migrated to WWW... (sorry if this has been posted already, didn't see it anywhere)

My backlinks still the same as on www2, and this is going to be bad month for my site.

Don't know where I went wrong this update...

Yes.
Middle of night here in US, and www is now showing the nightmare we've been watching on sj and fi for the past weeks.

No links added from the last 2-3 months have been "brought in" (as GG had said they would be).

www. in Germany not affected yet in the morning

www unchanged at the moment

Serious question -

Regardless of personal ranking performance in sj,fi & cw can anybody see improvements in these indexes, in terms of the serps they produce?

Just curious to set personal experience aside and look at it from a users perspective - are the serps better or worse?

8:43 am on May 15, 2003 (gmt 0)

I also see www as unchanged but I agree UKwebguy, the SERPS that are being produced by sj, fi and in particular cw as not being good for the user

Aside from fresh dates, no change to www here in Thailand.

Maybe it won't change? Maybe these odd datacentres are just for testing. Or maybe some wrong ingredient was put in the soup and they can't serve it yet...

One change I see today is that I have some new pages in the index and ranking highly for their targetted search terms. They weren't there yesterday.

-cw is very, very fresh last night I would say....
at least last time I looked

CW has a nice mix of SJ, FI and WWW with brand new freshies that right now WWW hasnt got, I wonder what that means.

I'v made a new site with about 2100 Pages.

sj shows 513
fi shows 1570
cw shows 115
ex shows 112
