hus, update watchers should be looking for when www2 and www3 *stop* redirecting.
What's more likely is that this was specifically done to people so that they can't see the update.
Either the datacenters as we know them are no more, or the are just doing this redirect to people from outside of Google so that only they can see the results without a redirect.
I also noticed the SERP has been freezen since Wednesday
I too thought that the fact that all datacenters showed the exact same results for the past few days could be a sign of a big upcoming update. However, today there are changes on some of the datacenters. These are minor changes for the keywords I watch.
I noticed a second big jump for my website yesterday in the google directory. In the past the PR there was aligned with the toolbar.
I am now showing a PR2 on the toolbar and a PR4 or 5 in the directory. Not sure if this is unique to my website (it is only about 3 months old).
interesting..something brewing...I hope they take the pot off the fire before it boils over...messy stuff when this happens...
