See the Google Update History [webmasterworld.com] for details.
There is a major crawl at this time, with some reporting full crawls simultaeously with the start of the update or just prior, while others are not crawled until after the update is complete.
For several months there's been spidering of sites going on all month, even in between the major updates, but this only represents a small percentage of sites and while it may or may not affect ranking changes, it doesn't affect the entire index.
There was a lengthy discussion of what's been called The Everflux Effect early in July:
We've been having a lot of threads starting with questions about this all month long, which makes it hard to find all the relevant information related to it. Also, the volume of posts is making it harder to find other information relevant to Google.
Let's confine discussion of the mid-month spidering and minor update pattern to one thread, to help everyone find the information they need more easily.
Today I was agian out, 0 traffic from Google, so there could still be a update in action and I have also seen different results everyday since the Google started the update, but after yesterday I think my page still have a change.
P.s Great now my site dossent even show a 0PR, but now its greyed out in the tool bar.
PP.s OK now it is a PR0 agian, jesus this is pulling my nerves, its obvious not enogh that I got a soccer injury and now cant play for 7month, nob then the gods said lets give him a little more pain by messing up hes ranking at Google, but I do not give up hope I know my site is good so it will rank good in this update.
Googlebot hadn't been by up to that point so I thought chances were good for the next update. Lo and behold, there's GB the next day(Sunday). Grabbed a couple pages that day and next. Then, ate the whole site the next day.
So, I'm happy at that point. Well, go figure, all the new pages are in right now and some placed well. I suppose it could be one of those in and out deals for the rest of the month.
If the pages were to stay for good, would that be a rare occurence to get pages in that fast?
On a side note, I was not able to put 301 redirects on the old stuff. Hosted on Win2000 system and no access to IIS manager. I had to use meta-refreshes and robots noindex,follow with a single text link on all old pages. I know it's off topic, but real quuick, is that going to affrect me in the long run?
On the bright side, google seems to have crawled nearly my entire new site which I didn't get in until about day 2 of the update. Thought I would be completely missed. Her first visit came on the 28th then later that day she brought all her friends.
Makes me feel a bit better, I guess
The recent update saw our site return to normal. This only happened for one of our websites and it was quite unusual. I wouldn't think it is a precursor to PR0, you would be PR0 now.
example www.mymaindoamin.com still has most links minus my own domain links which where there last month
www.domain1.com had over 80 links last month now has 0 incoming links still ranked well though?
same for all other domains
this is what they all say now:
Your search - link:http://-----.com/ - did not match any documents.
Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
Try different keywords.
Try more general keywords.
these were just extened products each on a seprate page i did make one change from the last month i added an aditional link with my keyword in the text to my main site for a total of two links coming in to my main site from these pages. do you think this could of contributed and is it to late to change it again before the next update finishes?
In the case you still have link popularity but google will just not show them to you any higher.
googleguy is this a bad sign?
I've some sites under penalty in Google [-> greyed-dropped].
These sites have still good links from ODP & Yahoo.
But these links are not showing at all in the Google adv. search.
So, I think when a site is going 'dropped', not only it disappear at all from the visible Google database, but also we don't see anymore all the good links to this site.
Note also that, int the last days, Googlebot come in these my sites, but request only the main page. [I mean '/'].
Hope this help.
If you have site 'ABC' under penalty, then also all the other sites you have with outgoing links to 'ABC' are under penalty.
So, you apparently loss links, but the fact is [a part of] your sites group is being 'dropped'.
Check your logs and see the accesses with
HTTP_REFERER similar to: '..google...q?.'
Check also, in the G search field:
If you see nothing, then your site is dropped :(
If your site appear, then consider get some good links.. :).
I uploaded a completely new design for a site Saturday morning hoping to get them in next month...all the new pages are in right now and some placed well. I suppose it could be one of those in and out deals for the rest of the month.
I've been left quite perplexed since Google's most recent 'update'. I created a couple of new sites and manually added them. During and after the last 'official' dance there were no sign of any of them. However, last week, doing a search, each of em were in the top 10, for their relevant keywords. None of em had any PR, none of em had any backward links (that google saw), in checking my logs, i noticed that googlebot visited a couple of times (25th, 26th & 27th), this listing remained constant, till fri/sat, when doing the same search i realised they were all gone. Not even in the first 20 pages! If i pull up the site, there is still no PR.
Although it was #4 last week, if i search for the domain name it says it can't find any info. on the site.
Does anyone know, or could shed some light as to what exactly might have occured? Has this happened to anyone else? Is this new listing (minus my site) going to remain constant till the next update? Was this some precursor to what's going to happen during the next idex, will i reappear then? Any one who could provide an informed opinion, i'd be very grateful, as my job is now in jeopardy, as management thinks something was done wrong.
