Just a coincidence?!?

Well we are due an unpdate around about now, lets hope so.

I have added lots of new links, which should help raise my PR.

It's the first time I see the Googlebot-Image on my site! This site has been well indexed in Google for over a year, and the images are in all the other image databases. I was beginning to wonder... Good!

In the olden Google Dance days the update wasn't preceeded by a datacenter going down. Likely this means something else.

Serps are the same for us with fresh date of Oct. 16.

Not normally a sign of big changes.

What are you basing this on?

a monthly backlink / pr update schedule

not to be confused with...

weighting algorithm changes
individual page content freshening
mini serp updates

It's been my experience that pages with higher PR update more often than pages with lower PR and that the higher PR sites get crawled more deeply than lower PR sites. It's hard for me to believe a blanket statement like "expect a backlink PR update in a week"

There is no confirmed reason about to stop updating backlinks list.
I think process it's only delayed.
If you see threads around 25 days ago it was the same noise just before -ex update.

I did qualify the statement by separating google updates into four categories.

I am drawing not only from experience with the sites that I maintain, but from the experiences of other webmasters.

If you maintain a PR7, PR8, or PR9 sites with contrary behavior, I would love to hear about it. I maintain only one PR7 site (and several of lesser PR) and it follows this pattern. I presumed that people asking this question are maintaining sites that fit within my experiential framework. I may be wrong about that. (BTW, if are you are referring to the rapid introduction of new pages by high PR sites, I would classify that under the freshening update category.)

I just did "site:www.bluegizmo.com -dsfds"
query on -sj and it has all of the pages in my latest site in its index, only the index page has a listing on the www and the 9 other datacenters. I have to check some clients sites now :-)

Right now from Cali I am seeing -sj and -zu down.

What does it mean? Tomorrow's headline....

Time Warner buys Google
Will change name to Google-Time Warner for the next year.

It is not my domain, I didn't even know it was an active domain. The use of variants of the word "gizmo" is common is posts, so I really din't think of it as a violation of the TOS.

I will from now on use example.com, when I post messages.
I am unable to edit my post.

LOL. I hope (for you) that it's not your domain. It seems to be poorly done re. some SEO principles. These days you can't even rely on blubsomething.com not to exist.

I notice that www.widget.com is now a valid website and you can't call them thingamabob either
because that is taken also.

Pretty soon we won't be able to discuss any generic item without violating the TOS.

Unfortunately, I have also just acquired:

www.website-designed-not-to-violate-WebmasterWorlds-increasingly-restrictive-TOS-in-postings.com

(and .net)

So I strongly advise you ALL not to use this in your postings.

No sh*t, I had a look at www.example.com and I found this:


<head>
<title>New Page 1</title>
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 5.0">
</head>

LOL

defnitely seeing some big changes in SERPs Im monitoring...and not due to fresh activity I'm only seeing it on very highly competitive terms - almost like Google is implementing changes from the click tracking they've been doing pretty heavily for the last two weeks.

i'm loving the changes, my traffic has doubled across the board. It looks like a update of the webmap.
