WWW2 & 3 are showing big changes in the SERPs to WWW as of this morning in the UK.

Anybody else noticing anything,

The results showing on [216.239.57.98...] are *almost* the pre-florida posistions and on some of my sites they are exactly where they were pre-florida.

Interesting.

<<I see different results every 5 minutes or so... I don't like the "new" one at all, I went from #2 to #7, #11 to #19, #2 to #10 for my major keywords. >>

hehe, it's tough to comment as there has been many shifts. For a moment, I was seeing some results that reminded me a lot of 3-4 months ago. I can't possibly look at all our sites/serps, but a couple of my "favorites" are taking a pretty good beating :)

Is it possible that we are seeing G finally updating their database with the results of the last 3 or 4 weeks crawling? I started seeing a few deep pages from my site showing up yesterday and this afternoon more are showing up. Up until now, my index is the only fresh page in weeks.

I'm sure that many have made changes to their sites in response to the recent updates and we may be seeing movement as a result of those changes finally hitting the searches.

It doesn't look like an update from where I sit. Just a bit of movement here and there, but that's always happening.

But that's always happening.

lol, the only time I really watch an update is when the official thread is posted here. Based on a handful of test terms that I carefully watch, Google is updating by the hour. There is constant movement in the top ten.

I don't know about an update, but all of the SERPs I watch are different.

"216.239.57.98/"

A page with PR=0 containing 11 affiliate tracking links links is now #1 for a financial service prefaced by most of the state names: "state" "service" ...brilliant.

At least now I know what works... first delete all the relevant on-topic text...these ranking pages have no text except for menu anchor text and the rest of the page are gif's. No relevant body text on the page at all.

What I am seeing here too. And quite a bit of variation between datacenters. You can see why I specifically up the thread refused to use the U word, and left it as "something is up". Google ain't like it used to be.

Very interesting, yet widely fluctuating results. Tim's gotta be loving this. I'll bet he prayed all week for some Google changes and a new mega post thread regarding G instead of Y!

LMAO. Anything to shift the focus off Yahoo ;)

Regarding the update .. am seeing some changes but then those happen everyday. Nothing drastic in my end of woods.

Agreed, mil2k. I think what we're seeing is a bit of an algo tweak, and keeping up with those is like trying to hit a moving target. How can there be an "update" until there's a tallying of links and PR? When we get hit with that plus an algo shift, then we'll have something.

I don't see an update. Though I did notice some of my competitor's sites were filtered out again. I shouldn't complain but I would rather have competitors that are relevent than be amoungst directories, which have, as their only virtue, links to my sites annd my competitors. I worry that if this tweaking of the filter continues it will see the end of the majority of legitimate commercial sites.

My sites have been bouncing around for the last few weeks so now like others say that it is difficult to tell.

What I do see on www2 and 3 a site of mine that has been round since the dawn of time into position 40. That is not on!

It all sounds a bit too much like a much smaller version of the Florida update to me... sites dropping quite a few places, sites jumping around.. etc..

I hope it isn't though.

Has anybody seen these changes on WWW for any length of time or even on other datacentres except for those already mentioned?

needinfo I cannot see it on any data centers at all from Prague. I do see it on www2 and www3 though.

Guess we need Google Guy to come in an clarify. From experience backlinks usually update first followed by a dance and that is not happening in this case so I guess it is some rearranging.

Crush - here for the last 3 months we have been having backlinks and PR updated completely separated from the updates - every 15 days or so - of course now I think its been about 25 days since the last backlinks so we are due in my book

Marval
When was the last PR update? Seems like it's been a LONG time. I have a lot of new pages that are included, but still have no PR.

Yes, the pattern was Backlinks update followed by PR Update. But last time around we did not have PR update after the backlinks update. So PR update is due long time.

No update, the serps are just moving a little, my site moves everyday 3-5 places and there are no changes in link count, so no update.

<<my site moves everyday 3-5 places and there are no changes...>>

If you are looking at one site or area, it really isn't a good indicator of much. I am seeing quite a few pages (100's) move up or down over 25-50 spots, which is a bit different than the usual daily shifts.

Frankly, I could care less what it is called but if the new SERPS make their way to www, we are again looking at a pretty significant algo change (meshes with what Matt Cutts said at PubCon).

mfishy, I have been seeing these results on www for 12 hours now in S. California.

I saw them breifly on hotbot....Yuk. Back to normal for now though. Still see no changes on the data centers but www2 and 3 have these new SERPS. That is weird as usually 2 and 3 reflect the results of one of the data centers and now they are completely different.

yep.. big changes on my keywords on 2 & 3 took a bit of a hit again if it sticks.. Back to the drawing board :-(

<<What Did Mr Cutts say?>>

That the days of the same scoring algo for 8 months plus are history and that webmasters should get used to the fact that Google will now be introducing new scoring quite often.

I haven't checked, but I'm not aware of anything too large launching in the last day or so. People should expect to see daily or near-daily updates this coming year as we continually update our index data, but I'm not aware of any large algorithm updates that would merit calling this an update.

I like these ongoing updates coupled with the frequent crawling and freshtags. How much is this going to cost me per click though?
