steveb, I believe the 64.x.x.x data center has the change, but I'm not positive. We use different terminology inside Google. :)
Powdork, I'm not sure if you'd call it an update exactly (different algorithms play more of a role than different data). But I'm guessing the change will probably roll out over the course of the weekend.
P.S. Powdork, not positive if I remember your site correctly, but if I do then you should be happier. We really do listen to the feedback that people give us, I promise. :)
Ah, that's right. I'm waiting for this here program compile to finish.
<GoogleGuy pokes his compiler some.>
That's the kind of feedback I like to hear. :) But if you do see some, feel free to drop me a spam report. You can use "austinupdate" until Brett and the mods decide if this change is worth a name. :)
Come to think of it, I am getting a little sleepy.
Not a huge change though. Mostly just adding two lame results per ten good results.
markus007, we removed the need to do that -asdfasdq stuff, so I'd just leave it off altogether. site:domain.com will give you a pretty fair estimate. I think adding the -sadfasdfq stuff makes the server go partway through the index before it says "Wait a minute. That's a nonsense word!" So it's basically nondeterministic depending on which nonsense word you add. I'd just use site: and not worry about it. :)
