What does that mean for us?
I have been in the top stop for years on google and in -in I am gone. Also are the 2 other biggest portals in my area. It would be a sad day for my widget area if this ever goes live.

-in is rubbish in my opinion and I am sure after this post there will be a deluge of people who agree with me.
For the record I agree :) But if you are checking competetive categories then no point as they have been filtered. And I think I am seeing -in results for past two hours now on WWW.

First site with pr5 and 58 backlinks! All from guestbooks with endings like this "www.site.com/more/000046.php3"
Second site the same. Just links from guestbooks and other posting methods!
Third site the same...
4th site has pagerank 3!
5th pagerank 4 with 12 backlinks!
6th seems to be ok
7th seems to be ok
8th guestbook links again...
I think this will never be the new index because this is really rubbish!
Anyone seeing the same bad results in his undustrie in www-in?
www-in and www3 look much better than before in terms of relevancy. The desired effect of the filters (keeping trash out) seem to have taken hold without the previous adverse effect of the Florida massacre.
Seriously, one of the big rankers is an affiliate site, minimal backlinks and the page that shows up is a framed page that reeks of spam in the source. Nothing but meta data and comments. Another high up is an "authority site". Not that this is a bad thing, but the search term was "discount ******" and there is nothing "discount" about this site. If this is quality then my world just ended.
The pre-florida and current www. look better to me. Heck, even mid-Florida looked better than this dreck (and I wasn't there either).
In my industrie no site which was in the top ten in the last months is in the top ten again now! I don't think that all sites which have been listed before in the top 10 do wrong now! I only see websites in the top 10 which were not in the top 100 in the last month!
Exactly what I am seeing
Never seen so many Ebay sites at the top. (& many others)
You could not get more Ebay in the SERPS if you tried, might as well go to ebay.com, and also what was left was just other shopping directories.
Maybe www-in is Froogle in disguise ahhah, but i hope this -IN stays where it is
I myself am seeing good results. A multiple duplicate domain link spammer (that's a mouthful) that has been #1 since I started watching that particular serp last summer is finally GONE.
The rest of the results look pretty darn good. Only 2 sites now that I wouldn't include as being relevant to the search.
If you are long enough in your industri and know your competitors well. Check the top SERPs. Most top sites backlinks are not reciprocated. Most are established site where people link to them for free long time ago. If it happens to have a few new sites, they probably bought a lot of links.
Sites that drop out are probably those that have over 90% links reciprocated.
It shows the same results as www-in!
Not for me.
Baron, breathe slowly, look out the window, then turn off your computer for a little while... before you go stark, raving mad.
-in has not propagated. It is still just -in. Fuggedaboudit. Stop looking at it. Don't panic.

Baron13, when you've turned your computer back on and check this thread... I don't know the workings of the site you checked, but I'd imagine it looks at different dc's and -in is one of them. -in results are live on about a tenth of the searches right now.
All you people obsessing about -in... when GG asked for feedback on it, I got the impression that it was an experiment and not at all necessarily the next version of the serps. Just stop looking at the thing, everyone, and give yourselves a break. Maybe if you ignore it, it will go away.
