I have seen last days some big changes in site counts when you make a search, I know there changes everyday, like you make a seach for a keyword which gives you 4mill results it can have a site count from between 3-5 mill sites thats normal, but today I saw on a normal seach where the site count is 4mill., this time there where 12mill sites as results, thats a huge difference.

p.s I dont think it is a update, but it can be a beginning of something.

could you explain the term "site count"? don't know what to do with it (and a site search didn't reveal that either).

Hi Muesli,

A site count normally refers to the number of pages containing your search query. There was a time when it indicated the number of web sites containg the phrase. It is a rough indicator of how how many sites are competing for the particular phrase.

I just thoght about, maybe the increase in sites on Google is because all the new sites are now being indexed, because many had problem with site they have made from now to 5 month old to rank on Google, maybe those sites was not counted even if they had a PR.

I think something's up, although things are pretty fluid as yet. One minute I am looking at x number, and an hour later at an x-y number, then after an hour back to x number. I am seeing reductions in SERPs. Is Google cleaning out their SERPS?

In the SERPS I'm tracking, count decreased from 19M to 16M. Hmmm ...

I'm seeing a roll back of about a week for most of my pages. I wish they would take the revert to old data routine out of the algorithm.

As well as changes in the site count I'm seeing a big change in the SERPS for my main keywords... I've just hit #1 from #2 yesterday. Up 'til yesterday I've never been higher than #5 and quite often lower. I'm starting to get nervous - I don't like the altitude up there and I'm worried my site's going to fall off! :)

I'm sure it won't last... better get myself a screenshot.

Not seeing very much change anywhere else at the moment.

ok, my backward links went from 227 to 228.
Now, this is not the usual link update google does, but I have never seen google updating links (especially by 1) two weeks after the last one.

I think something big is coming, and he bottom of my pants is shacking.

google has fixed the so called bug (no cache problem which happened for many of the big sites). That was one big change, this will lead to some good SERP changes.

In the SERPs I'm looking at, count is down from 19 million 2 days ago to either 17+ or sometimes 16+ million. The number keeps on fluctuating though.

For some of the keywords i'm tracking also my website jumped even 70-80 spots and my traffic is up for almost 200%. So is this a good ole google dance or what?

D'oh - replied in the wrong thread.

My #1 spot was a (nearly) 3 hour wonder. Everything's gone back to normal now.
