Anyway, I've noticed a LITTLE traffic coming in from Google (people doing searches) - however, ALL of the people are coming from 2 different IP classes
I did some traceroutes with NeoTrace which shows where they are located on a map and most are coming from the the same locations. I'm thinking that perhaps this means one of Google's datacenters has the most current index for us and we will be coming back accross the other datacenters.... but I wanted to see what others thought about this.
One reason I think this is because we record referring URLs so I can see see what the customer searched for, and Google is showing them new links that we added within the past couple of weeks.
Anyone know if there is still a way to do a search using specific Google datacenters? When I try doing the same search that users are using to get to our site, I am NOT seeing our site listed AT ALL.
My fingers are crossed and I'm hoping whatever is in that one datacenter is going to spread to the others.
Most of the roadrunner and aol home users will show to be from Virginia regardless of where they actually are. You are probably just seeing mostly home surfer traffic at this point.
I get the same thing. I fact, it gives some of my clients fits when using a stat program. Because of this, IPs and demographics can get muddled.
BTW: I've noticed a lot of duplicate IP traffic coming from adwords. I suspect it is largely from competition and people who are wanting to earn themselves a trip to Vegas by clicking on ads.
I'm hoping it is a "good" turnaround, but I can't be sure without being able to see the results that come up. If I could actually see the results those visitors are seeing I will be able to see if it is showing our new pages. Does anyone know if there is a way (as there used to be) to do searches from specific datacenters?
Also, I'm curious how long it takes for changes to propogate throughout Google's datacenters.
The IP address I am referring to are the visitors IP addresses...not Googles. I can see what the exact search string (referring URL) was and what the visitor's IP address was.
