Anyone else see the backlinks reported by Google has changed significantly? Mine jumped by over 1000%, it now seems to be reporting all backlinks regardless or PR.
Pages indexed: I have some huge sites, some of which I had given up on being fully indexed in my lifetime. But, as of today I see a huge number of pages indexed at Google that seem to have occurred very recently. On checking server logs it appears Googlebot has been living at these domains and swallowing as fast as possible.....never seen this rate of indexing before. Anyone else see a huge number of new pages crawled in the last few days?
SERPs: I see some very significant changes in SERPs recently. Some good, some bad, but a definate change in algo...anyone else see this?
Hopefully this will settle down with the result being a PR update.
By the Way, Brett - really enjoyed seeing you speak on the Organic Listings forum at SES San Jose.
Agree. Which I initially found weird, cause you would think they would want to be a church mouse this week.
I've been using Yahoo for backlink checks. G isn't reliable from that angle anymore. They know about them - obvious from the ranks on some of my sites, but they aren't showing them for whatever reason.
Ever since the dodgy July update, only 55 backlinks are shown for my PR7 site.
www2 and www3 are now showing 52 backlinks - when I am actually aware of at least 10+ new PR6 links to my site.
A note to Google - you are really annoying the geeks and webmasters among us who monitor page rank and backlinks - im sure we only make up a few % of your users - but ..... hurry up with the PR update already!
Although sites such as cj.com are still PR0, so maybe it is affecting some sites at the moment, but not all.
thats the only pr update that i've seen, please if anyone have seen other pr updates tell us..
