I've been reading the threads about this update and would really appreciate the view of more experienced members.

I have a site (9 months old) that has always listed well in Google. Over the weekend, it went from search position 3 to position 18 on my main keyword and disappeared for virtually ever other keyword. On Monday I started seeing the site come back into position 1 for my main keyword and back to previous position for lesser keywords (which is great). Searching today, I find the following at the various datacenters:

ex - #1
sj - #1
va - #1
dc - #1
ab - no listing at all
in - no listing at all
zu - no listing at all

Any idea what this means? Am I getting excited about nothing as the 'no listing' datacenters will soon take over the ones where I feature well (obviously meaning I could soon be out of the index all together).

Any thoughts would be really appreciated.

I'm interested in finding out which way the newer data moves through the data centers too.

I've been watching a sites position for one keyword for the last 4 days and the results tell me zip at the moment, but if it helps, here's the data I've collected so far...
does anyone have any idea on which data center has the newest or most recent data for the new algo?

Can anyone read anything into my stats?

Hi Newboy

Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]

Regarding the order, there was some discussion of this over the last two days here [webmasterworld.com].

Regarding the results, and Annii's, we're all in the same boat. Expect daily changes for a few weeks yet. If you can bear it, stop checking.
