Is it me or does it look like a significant update is going on at google. I am noticing a number of SERP changes for a few of my sites and they've been fluctuating for the past few days.

Anyone else noticing any major changes?

I show a weird mix of backlinks. Some are PR0 some are internal PR4's. I hope these results don't go live. These are the worst in a long time.

Do yourself a favor and get some decent external backlink reporting:

Yahoo command for off-site backlinks:

link:http://www.mydomain.com/anypage.html -site:www.mydomain.com

Yes, it shows hundreds or thousands more than Google for an average site, if you ask for the home page. You won't even believe your eyes! But if you start asking for deep pages, it starts getting believable.

On the bright side (not)...

what an education this is in dmoz clones! You guys got the poetry site? How about the sm image gallery? Knowing these sites link to me is so much more fullfilling than seeing five university library and three major newspaper links.

Hey man, I got backlinks from sites that don't even exist anymore. We're spreading out through time, like some Star Trek version of Google. Next, I'll find the right command to register www.msn.com and then we're off to the races.

>>>I got backlinks from sites that don't even exist anymore

If that is the new SEO, getting non-existing links, I will excel.

It would only be fitting to do the PR update now with original PR0-2 pages shown as PR10 while PR6+ pages are zeroed out.

The tool thingee is showing all datacenters updated with the new backlinks, but no PR changes on any.

I'm seeing different numbers on different data centers, the one with the lower numbers omitting the better ones and showing most of the junk.

Wow.. this is the oddest backlink update I've seen in the 2 years I've been watchng Google. Only less than PR3 links are showing on my end... Are they hiding the high PR links now?

I tested on two well-known terms and each time found one link in the first ten backlinks that was PR0 (or white bar?)!

I am seeing PR0 sites all over the top 10 in many competative terms. Strange

Things are a changin' will have to see what the morning brings.

This is indeed a learning experience though I'm not at all sure what its teachings are. I think I'll turn my back on Google for the next couple of days.

Perhaps what we are seeing is the inverse backlink command. It's showing all the links you have that DON'T count. For me it is only internal links and the site that I obviously (as one directory 301's tothe new domain) also have control over, while there are many pr 5-7 links pointing at the site.
I'd like to write more but I've got to get to work on getting that yoogoo link.;)
