I've been watching my ranking for THE keyword phrase for one of my "moneymaker" sites since all of this recent "update" began.

Actually, all I have to do is check my online bank balance....new update made my credit card deposits tank!

Starting this am, when checking the "dance" and hitting their Recheck button, my site will appear 60% of the time, either on www2 or www3 database.

This is a new development-I watch this kw combination very closely....is anyone else experiencing this?

A plea to the WW community:

Please, no hyperlinks to "freshbot" info- I know the difference, and this IS something new.....

My home page, formerly MIA, has just returned to all nine datacenters, including www, www2, and www3.

Clearly something is happening ....

Backlinks still aren't showing correctly ...

Something big happened when the datacenters lined up last night/today. I'm surprised there is no new thread about this. While one of you sees your MIA site return suddenly, mine disappeared suddenly for only one of my keywords after holding strong on www-sj, www2, and www3 for weeks at #2.

I would really like to hear more about these sudden changes that do not reflect at all what www-sj, www2, or www3 has looked like for 2 weeks. If we were just seeing the www-sj data showing up on all datacenters, then why did I disappear the very second that happened. Clearly, it wasn't just the data lining up, some other factor occurred at the same time or I'd still be where I was.

Another odd thing is that I still maintained #1 for my other keywords with my homepage, but for this keyword I disappeared from I went from #2 to #170, and even that sad position was an internal page. Homepage not found for that keyword. Yet, I am #2 in google directory for that keyword, PR6, 650 backlinks in google's new backlink figures...and all those factors are much higher in all respects than my competitors. Clean site, so no ban, and showing up well for all other keywords. If anyone else is experiencing anything similar, you are not alone. And it would help me to know if you had experienced this for a few hours then recovered...would make me feel optimistic.

My home page dissappeared for a while and than came back all of a sudden as well. So yeah, something happened.

Shouldn't surprise anyone. Until Google settles down we better get used to seeing erratic and weird results.

There is no method to this madness. At least not right now.

Me too. In fact, my front page has been gone (buried in the "other results from mydomain.com" link) since the last (botched) deep crawl data hit the index about a month before the recent unpleasantness. It's very nice to have it back.

yes, there are different SERPs on www and www-sj

looks like they feed www-sj with the new algos or new calculated pr.

added: also there are other results on www-ex

We reported the differences yesterday in another thread. www2 & www3 are now the same as SJ - www is still showing the results from the other data centers.
