* Some of us will see different things at different times.
* Sometimes in the past, the update has been unstable for a while. The 'new' index may change over the next fews days.

For the most popular UK SEO phrase, for example, four out of the top ten sites appear to have cached data from the correct sites, but urls and links to completely unrelated sites. The snippets come from the site being linked to and show no words being highlighed from the search term, but the ODP description is correct for the site that is in cache, but has nothing to do with the site being linked to, or in the title.
Our site, for example, has been link-jacked by a major organisation, completely unrelated to SEO.
18,000 links with site:www.yahoo.com "www.yahoo.com" on www
13,600 links on www2 and www3
I don't know if this consitutes an update..I am nervously awaiting the update....Trying to get a dynamic site indexed (deep links) in google...
Of course, it is early in the dance and I might drop back. In particular, one of the reasons that I believe these sites were higher than mine on this keyword was anchor text on the link from other sites. If anchor text gets factored in late in the dance, then I should drop. However, never in past dances was I anywhere near #1 early in the dance.
And vitaplease.. i too am seeing some japanese pages for totally off-topic queries.. very odd!
