yeck we're getting killed again. <sigh> None of the new sites are in for some reason. Can't get Google to pick them up for love 'nor money. One main site still rides at #1 can't do anything to screw that up yet, but our retail site keeps getting buried deeper in the listings.

One thing that is annoying me is the fact that Im listed in dmoz 4 times, some with www. and some without.

Its making some of my SERP's split as if they appear to the "other" sites.

Bugging, but alias, not something worth getting in contact with someone who can change it :)

Nonetheless, its nice to see a new dance, and to check out all those new sites linking in and what they have to say about the site ! :)

It's followed my 301 perfectly on one site.
It ignored my nofollow:noindex on another.

All in all not a bad effort.

There's something seriously wrong in there. A whole bunch of stuff is missing.

The Directory didn't update. Was hoping for that boost. Oh well, links seem to have about tripled (from 16 to 42). I guess it's a step in the right direction anyway.

For my keywords everything shifted. This was a quite substantial update. The entire top ten for 2 of my keywords have completely changed.

grumpus, they've updated their directory, I guess you will see your link coming up there when they've updated google.com too.

@all
the reason why I'm so happy? have to share this with you: I'm running an adult site and I've optimized my pages for some keywords that give you results like "1million hits" and I'm on the first page there or even at first position. Imagine how hard it is in that business but I'm in!!! thanks to you all

Thnaks to all in the forum. We are still obscure, but picked up 30 places on main keyword. Partially because content for new pages is about 2 weeks old. So, still work to do. I don't know why the newest page versions didn't get picked up.

Hmm, I seem to be #1 and #2 under my primary keywords and showing up quite well under secondary keywords also. Google done good :-)

Agreed Toolman. Lot of inbounds not showing.

Hehe! I'm sniffing browsers for the Google Toolbar. The toolbar enabled browsers have been spiking ever since the update began. I'm getting tons of data about the keywords my competitors are optimizing for and more importantly, who my competitors are. ;)
