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,
Google Update FAQ:
Messages in this thread do not count towards user message totals.
Understanding Dominic: (the previous update):
Appears in site links or number of pages indexed on some sites dropped drastically. Didn't affect us last month, but appears to have done so this month.
Seems to me with all the pages dropped the last two updates, that G has lost total pages indexed - not gained.
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.
