wonder if the backlink and pr loss is for UK sites, UK_Web_Guy. My internal pages have all gone to pr4 from pr5, and it's UK.

>Oh, and my expired domains are all still PR0, which is totally ridiculous.

Same here AAnnAArchy.
Mine even has a NEW! dmoz and google directory listing,no old links show and have numerous new ones but still not showing in the serps and no STILL NO PR.
The funny thing is tho they have indexed my images in "GOOGLE IMAGES" so people can come and pinch them.
GGRRRR!

The update seems to have been good to me. :)

My existing PR 6-7 sites didn't move around at all, but for my 4 sites that were brand new (all started mid-July to early August) and thus have been showing PR0 until today, two now show PR5, one is PR6 and one (newest and least promoted so far) is PR4.

The traffic they've been getting per page in Google for the last couple of weeks seems to reflect the PR ranking that is now showing for them, but that could also have more to do with the fact that the higher PR site has the most focused content on and has been promoted more heavily then the others.

My link to Dmoz disappeared this morning, and latter in the day I dropped down 1 PR. My keyword ranking has stayed the same, and that is all that really matters.

For my industry, their is no relationship between
PR and keyword ranking. PR does not bring in the money. Being listed in Google and above the fold on the first search page is what brings in the doe.

I was on vacation so i haven't been up to date but checked my PR today and went from PR3 to PR0.

As far as i know my site is clean so i'm hoping this is just temporary. My site is in my profile if anyone would be wiling to take a look and comment if they see anything that doesn't look right and would cause a penalty.

Thanks!

PR went up, but i don't see sites i did reciprocal links with in my backlinks. Anybody seeing this? I still have sites that linked to me on their own in the backlinks.

My backlinks just doubled but the site went from PR4 (used to be PR5) to grey bar!

Should I be worried?

Backlinks still reported inaccurately. SERPs may actually reflect them though:)

PR...well who the heck knows what it really is? Gave up caring several months ago, it seems to be totally irrelevant in the big picture now. PR only seems important on a few primary keywords.....but the vast majority of traffic comes from elsewhere.

Backlink anchor text, way too much relevance given to something that is so easy to manipulate...Google look at how Yahoo solves this problem! Even without using Ink!

Fresh results still getting more than their fair share of attention IMHO. Google obviously wants a PHP only web, or an SSI CGI web!

Overall my positions are just about exactly the same as before on the primary terms, which account for about 5% of all traffic.....I'm guessing this is gonna be a non event for me....have to wait a week to see what actually happens;)

if it looks like a dance, feels like a dance, smells like a dance

it's a wierd dance. The index was all fresh and nice on 27th & 28th...then it's gone back to the old index, and worse it now got some unfiltered results on top! All my old pages are showing, and the new ones which appeared for one day on the 27th have disappeared!

hey, push that red button again

I reported yesterday a drop in backlinks from 78 to 33 but the SERP and PR was same.

Today my PR went down to PR4, but SERP is still unchanged. I really hope I dont go down in SERP too.

Quote-Watch the SERPS - not backlinks - not PR - it is the SERPS that delivery the traffic and the 's or $$'s depending on which side of the pond you are.-Quote

Hi.

What exactly do some of you mean the serps? I just registered here, but had visited occasionally for about a year.

I had some sites gain pr and some lose it, My highest site pr5 dove to a 3. Last time there were changes in pr I jumped up a lot, but then recieved less than 1/2 the normal traffic.

My best listings still appear, is that what you mean Serps?

SERPs = Search Engine Result Pages (I think)

NO fresh pages added yet, but PR up and backlinks added.

On www-cw, I have fresh tags from yesterday, new PR, and more pages indexed than ever before. I also have a shiny PR5 on a new site that has had a PR6 backlink since July 2.

I see some very funny result. One of my site has only 50k pages, but google serps show that it has around 100k pages in its database.

If I try to check the pages crawled for a particular folder which has only 500 pages in my site, it shows around 800. When I click on the next results and go till the end, it displays around 500 results only and says "Results 501 - 552 of about 800".

Whats going on? for other of my domains, I noticed the same. And yeah, the dance is wild ;)

The total results reported are approximately double what they should be. This is true for each of my specific directories, using the site: command, and it is also true for general search terms -- where it says "Results 1 - 100 of about 364,000" or whatever, you should know that four weeks ago the very same search reported a total of 190,000.

On my specific directories, I know exactly how many files are in each directory.

On general search terms, I have a list of multiple-word searches I did on August 1. Each one of these totals has suddenly increased about 80 to 95 percent.

Broken.

I wonder if the backlink counts are skewed also?

this is partially true...on 28th August a whole lot of new pages were added, but since 29th August, the results are only showing the older pages. I have no idea what is going on. Never seen anything like this before.

On 29th of August my site was no.7 in the SERPS on www-cw, but now it's gone back to it's previous position on page 2.

Strange?

Drop from PR 6 to PR 5 while backlinks increased from 107 to 163...?

Could be due to the fact that it were only internal links that caused the move from 107 to 163, and that the percentage of internal vs. external links was too high.

Strange thing is that many recent backlinks are listed but there are missing good PR 5 links for example for pages that are in the index for sure.

This is the strangest thing I have see.
On the 28th the SERPS were full of new pages...since then, the new pages have disappeared, the dance has settled and fresh tags have started appearing....AMAZING!

Am I the only one seeing this?

I've got relatively new sites, and just on Saturday noticed they were getting traffic off google,(I look at the logs everyday) so I checked and was very happy and surprised with my top ranks on all datacentres and local uk google. Not for long. Sunday morning I found my sites disapearing off all Google datacentres but www-cw. By Friday night sites were completely out even when I search using site command.
I am using seo techniques but not wicked ones. Its hard to believe that I got banned so quickly. Anyone else noticed something similar?

One of my "new" sites (May 2003) is showing PR on a few pages for the first time, albeit PR1.

On the other hand, ALL backlinks to this site have disapperared completely from all datacenters.

~sigh~

Sounds like your site received a temporary freshbot listing.

Don't worry, they'll be re-listed.
