I believe that PR will come to picture in the last phase of the update. If not... boy there is sure a major algo change after that widespread PR 0 panic...
Some of my rankings are fine. Some have dropped way down. My backlinks are down, which makes no sense at all. I checked and at least 3 PR5 pages that still have live links to me are not showing up in backlinks on W2 or W3.
Keywords in the title seems to be *less* important, and keywords on the page more so. But I could just be seeing some searches that are still in flux (I hope so).
Googlebot has crawled my site immensely during the last 2 weeks or so and now I see at www2 and www3 the 4 or 5 week old versions of my pages (at www there are the pages from yesterday).
Does anyone have an explanation for this?
I'd like to see my new pages again after this update, which can be found at www by now, but not at www2+3.
I can find a training company that Google has swapped in the description of bratwursts/meat market store.
This same swap error I saw in the live database (www) last month as Google was alternating live indices on www (I believe that Google has been running two alternate indices for the last 2-3 months).
There are sites on the first page results with good PR but with maybe just 1 of the keywords out of a keyphrase appearing just once at the end of a long title and just appearing once in the actual body of the site. The rest of the content is just images with no alt text at all.
For most of my key phrases except one or two, I have dropped about 30-40 positions at least. :(
I sincerely hope this isn't the final ranking.
Congrats to those of you who did well. I can't say the same for us. We had consistent top 3 across the board for a lot of keywords. We did a campaign to get more links these past two months (not cross linking - they were good links) but we have droppped out - not even top 50. (Is McDonald's hiring?)
First post in this group...
About this dance:
- I've put a new site online 11 sept 2002 (hope it's not bad luck ;-)
- Since then, it has been spider by Googlebot 3 times (always 1 level deep only - 41 pages)
- To my surprise, 41 pages have showed up in WWW the 20, 22, 23 of september and only those days. Got visitors of keywords searches from thoses pages. (From Google, Netscape and AOL)
- Today, only the homepage show up on WWW. But nothing on WWW2 and WWW3.
My question is:
Is is normal to have those 41 pages appeared this month for a few day and not even be in this monthn update? Do i have to wait for next month update?
Thank you all. Love this website. It's just Great.
Thanks Matt, thanks Jo, thanks everyone at Google and thanks to all of you at WebmasterWorld!
Paul's site is in www3, after nearly 12 months of being banned. His pain has been tremendous, after being misguided by a duff SEO company. He has even offered me a beer! :)
The sun is shining,
The sky is blue,
My Pal's in the google index,
Phew, and I though it could not get better! Thank you thank you thank you. (should I have charged more than a beer?)
From those of you who have been through this madness several times before, have you noticed any other general patterns as to what is calculated when?
I.E....is link pop calculated first......then link text.....etc. etc.
My major selling point on my sites seemed to be the onsite linktext, but they have all fallen dramatically, and I'm wondering if either, the weight of them was reduced or (crossing hands) it has not been factored in yet.
