So to me it looks like there's still no stable index. I don't think it's a glitch - google's index is simply not yet ready.
What got uploaded later in the month had rankings with the Fresh listings but it's not ranking for those now. On another site a new directory was added that got picked up and had a Fresh listing with "guesswork PR" but that's now grey.
LM, it does look like what we're seeing reflects back to the very beginning of March. Though later pages show with an allinurl: check, for ranking purposes it's as though they weren't even there.
My home page had disappeared for a key phrase - suggesting I guess that some old links weren't being counted.
Just now, my home page reappeared in the SERPS, and at an improved position.
Funny thing is it's only showing three links (not even Google directory!), but the ranking in the SERPS suggests that it's counting all the links, even though it doesn't show them.
Perplexing, but I'm sure glad I'm back.

Google has decided a new page added mid february is best for the most important phrase on a client site. Well, that PR0'd page now ranks #151 as opposed to #10 when it had PR4.
GoogleGuy mentioned another deep crawl..and I think it was deft_syder who mentioned he saw Deepbot.
Perhaps another full deepcrawl/update cycle before the more recent pages inherent PR?
Do URL descriptions seem old to people as well?
Yes. And from reading through the last week's posts, i guess many others also made this observations. Isn't this what GoogleGuy confirmed zillion times? More backlinks will be added step by step.

Yeah. but he didn't mention they'd be taking links away first going back to Feb-early March links.

[edit reason] Threads combined, thanks AW. [/edit]
My only serious concern is over one site that I inherited something with, but I can't do anything about that except try to fix what was done before I came along. Other than that, though it's interesting, as long as I know pretty much what I'm seeing, I've only got so many hours in each day so I figure we'll know what the story is eventually, and until then I'd better go on as usual and assume everything's fine.
If I don't keep up I'll fall behind and then when we DO know for sure it'll be a hassle to try to get adjustments made that ARE actually necessary.
Hate to rain on your parade, but GoogleGuy has already said the update's over and new backlinks will be added next time round.
I hope we can move on with this and just consider this update over finally. I know it's lousy but the writing is on the wall.
