I think you need to start expanding your referral base ASAP. Whether or not you have a problem with this index, depending on one search engine for 95% of your traffic is not a good business strategy. You're not getting "too much" from Google - you aren't getting enough from anyone else.

Our site too gets about 90% from Google and Google powered searches, we do get traffic from all major engines and directories, but it is nothing compared to Google. We do rely on Google but trends for search usage and mergers with the likes of AOL and many more make it ever more difficult to not rely on Google. There is no point being top rated on a search engine that nobody uses. I am sure that the subject matter does play a big part in which search engine people choose to use, if you want mp3's you would be unlikely to search on Google, maybe Kazaa.

I've been monitoring our site since the dance began, and we have picked up some ground. We are in an extremely competitive area though, so we may not do much better until we can get our site in the right category in DMOZ. :( It's important because that category provides a "gazillion" links. Been trying for months - can't give up now!

www, www2, and www3 are showing old results... I know the dance is still happening but I haven't noticed all three showing the same "old" results at the same time before...

I thought they were the same too on all three but there are some differences on where things hit. I would assume they are still in the middle of shaking things out. I'd be just as happy if they dumped this update and started over. ;)

For the last couple of hours I've been seeing new results on www2 and www3, but old results on www.

Things will settle down eventually!

This is the longest thread I've seen in awhile concering an update. So much speculation it makes my brain hurt. I think I'm going to stay out of here till the update is over. ;)

I am still seeing diffs on www2 and www3 that are not on www. I'm assuming the concencus thinks the dance is still underway right now?

If it's a new listing it will drop in and out until the next update, probably.

My new content appeared, disappeared, some of it reappeared - now my external links are gone. So, I'm just observing now so I'll know what to expect next time (maybe).

I'm still pretty new to ogling the google dance. We are coming up on 3 full days since it began. How much longer will it typically take?

I'm seeing grey on the toolbar. Is it me in trouble, or is it just flickering in and out?

How many people think that the page rank you see in your cached page will be the page rank you receive when google finishes her dance?

Google is taking a little while to roll out the www datacentres this update... sj is the only one I can see with the new index..

note : zu was also updated with the new index before that strange mini rollback happened.

i think its a reliable place

google is concentrating on their paid business and have grown quick but they can still be kicked out trust me

its a shame the effort we all put in will go nowhere
