If there wasn't a thread here, I couldn't tell there was an update. Our (toolbar) PR down, backlinks (those that they declare) down. SERPS exactly the same or better. Nothing dramatic or earth shattering. not yet...
If you get a blister on your toe while winning the Olympic marathon, you don't complain about the blister.
A four year old can check where you are in the serps.
Where you are in the serps matters, but it doesn't matter nearly as much as understanding *why* you are in the serps where you are.
I think most people here know a bit about "why", or at least their own versions and theories, leading to some very interesting arguments. If you have high ranking web pages in competitive areas, you probably know more than the average 4 year old.
The toolbar PR is a lovely toy and certainly shows something, but means very little in the big picture. Likewise, the link: tool, shows something, but not everything and has it's uses like finding out who links to your competitors, but not everyone who links to them is shown.
Google gives us some little morsels of information which we gratefully gobble, but we know we need to eat a real meal once in a while or grow thin.
Some people can't see the trees for the forest. Some can only see the trees. It takes all sorts to make a world, it takes all sorts to make a web.
note to self. stop taking the pills
PS - Anyone else getting dizzy, we are working on a major superbowl type site here, had 30 million plus hits last year in one day.
But man o man us webmasters go way out of our way sometimes, please Google at least give us some snacks, it has been a while and the google results are poor recently... I should not complain but what's up?
My opinion is this is the quiet before the storm, somethng is brew'in in S.E. lala land!
Opinion 2 - Maybe this is a combination of MSFT going wild and Google going public. Ready for war peoples?

I was not surprised to find out that one member of that band was from my home town.
You guys in the UK, nothing changes there. That's why I left.
However Google now shows different PR for / and /index.php when previously they were identical. I thought Google had this sorted...
No change to Google directory yet.
