This might mean a possible update.
WebmasterWorld Google Update Changes:
The problem: Chit chat noise in update threads.
Last month we hand several thousand messages posted about the update. The volume level was intense and people couldn't find the info that was appropriate. Many senior members complained about the "me too" chit chat messages being left.
We are not going to do that this month. If you don't have anything new to add to a thread thing please kick back and read. Additionally, we are going to be proactive in keeping those threads clean. Again, the volume is so high this time of month that informing everyone of any thread tidying is near impossible.
We would appreciate your continued latitude, cooperation (thanks), and patience as we head into this months update.
For the Team,

Dolemite, we wouldn't do that to confuse webmasters. Think of it like this: if you start out with a new bot, it's pretty natural to give it a new IP range. When you do nice things that upgrade the bot to a Turbo Bot Platinum 2003 Deluxe with new capabilities, you might not assign it a new IP range.
That's good to hear...clarifies a lot of things for me.
That begs the question, does an upgraded freshbot that crawls deeper and does the work of deepbot correspond to a change in the updating cycle? Perhaps more frequent updates?
My question: is it safe to assume that the increase of backlinks means that the site HAS been successfully crawled this month and therefore 'should' show in the new index - perhaps it just hasn't settled down yet, or does that not neccessarily follow?
I am very pleased you have done me very well!
Are the pages I see on -fi going to stay there?
I remember it used to be if it were a deepbot page we were married til death due us part and a fresh page was just like a short date.
If these are all fresh pages are they just going to be here a short time?
does this make any sense at all?
However, what this does gives us is a date that the deepcrawl must have taken place around.
So, we are talking about one week (probably less than a week) from the end of deepcrawl by freshbot until live in the index - pretty good going :)
Is that your understanding GG? Or are these all in already?
I'll send a spam report later today
About 1500 of 4000 pages in the index list only URL's. Of those 1500 pages about 800 seem to be just randomized URL's that i am 100% sure don't exist on my site, and never have. Its almost like googlebot is confusing my site with another site.
Well, all I can say is - ouch
right now I am thinking of driving the hour and a half to mountain view to stalk google_guy and buy him a beer!
I went from 114 pages 2 or so months ago to 2 pages last month to 110 QUALITY pages this month.
If 1/2 these pages stick I'll be 1 happy cat!
cheers to google guy!
Message board links count but regular ones (and DMOZ) don't? I am somewhat confused.
Very exciting to see the index almost back to full strength flavour.
Which reminds me, I need to go call my Dad. Anyone else need to do that too? :)

Is there any chance you could shed any light on this type of thing GG.
