The results look really good.. hopefully this will reflect across all the datacenters soon. Seems like the spammier sites I compete against have moved down while the good honest pages have moved up.

I've stickied a specific... but in reality there are stacks of them. Big sites' inner pages killing smaller more focused sites (which are often more specific to the search).
>> Unlike last time, however, GG is not confirming that more sites will "filter in" over the coming weeks <<
In an environment which is so unstable, throwaway sites will rule. What's the point in focusing and working hard on quality/depth and you can be blown away like this? There is none, get yer black hats on.
Good news for domain name sellers.
~seriously, did my page *really* belong on top of that serp relative to other options for the searcher/user
~ a little self introspection this morning can take you further than trying to rationalize why your highly optimized PR6-is on page 3.
i am simply happy that we have a company in G that in lue of its on and off serp ppc success is willing to continue to invest in the organic search environment to make things better *for users*.
This morning, yINK is feeling really old.
i dont get that...my index pages are treated as a shop window for everythinbg that i offer..inner pages only show whats relavnt to the path the user has taken..as such my index pages are my most important pages since they offer things users may not have thought of before...
I'm reminded of the joke about the open heart surgeon and the car mechanic.
Cutting to the quick, the car mechanic remarked how similar their jobs were, but that the heart surgeon got paid so much more.
The surgeon replied that open-heart surgery was a bit like changing the piston rings on a car engine without stopping the engine.
I suspect that updating an index and servicing queries at the same time is pretty similar...
Would you rather Google shut down while this was going on?
I remember Dom/Esm - it took a bit of convincing but alot of the members of webmasterworld ended up being right that the quality of the SERPS was poor during that period - the fact that a lot of sites were restored high up the SERPS's after this period confirms this.
For sites to rank top 10 for years and then disappear completely! Come on - if these sites were so blackhat how did they last 2 years!
Something is not right at the moment, filters that may have been added seem inconsistent, big PR buyers still ranking well, and alot of clean sites vanished.
Has a real feel of somebody going round cracking nuts with a sledge hammer!
I don't expect this to change for a while, dom/esme took 2 months to sort out, after that fiasco I didn't think we would see a repeat from the mighty G.
Hope I'm wrong
