I'm really starting to hate that number.

I'm just imagining myself 30 years from now randomly seeing that number and it triggering some psycho rampage.

657,000! [evil laugh] 657,000!

OMG... and I thought that I hit the refresh button quite a lot at update time... how do you keep track of it, I mean 657,000 is quite a lot of refreshes.

Not sure Google really likes it when we all check the link:yahoo... Not good for they bandwidth.

I'm sure it would make things easier for them if they just told us when the dance will take place. (Only thinking of what's good for Google here ;))

lol- I had to switch domains (try google.com or Amazon.com)... I just couldn't keep doing it with Yahoo- it was driving me mad. I have a little window open the whole time with a script that will search www, www2 and www3... I just hit refresh every ten minutes (I'm waiting on a new site to come in)... My boss thinks I've gone mad. I really wish Google would just do it...

Just a tip if you query Google a lot, and want to save them bandwidth, then query them with ie?q=link:www.yahoo.com

That will save them some bytes of bandwidth and will produce quicker results for you.

To be honest I don't think they're too worried if a couple of thousand SEOs click refresh every ten minutes... Or am I being silly here?

I don't understand why GoogleGuy can't give us a hint when the update starts. If there will be no update in october he also could say this, then everybody could sleep well and does not to look at some Google Dance Detectors every minute.
GoogleGuy, would you please sooooo kind to give us a hint? PLEASE!

Hmmmm. I have been seeing 4,930 back links for Yahoo for the last freakin' MONTH. Weird.

Beachboy, yahoo.com and www.yahoo.com are not merged in Google's index, so they have different backlink counts.

OK I got the solution! I got Yahoo with 4,930, Atadams has it at 657,000, and Highman has it at 49,300. Different results. Let's just pretend the bloody thing has updated and go back to bed....

Guess we all did, that's why we read the thread.

What do you do in those 10 minutes? How can you stand it that long?

.... and you're all very, very, sad :P

Can't speak for the others, but I know.

Oh, and the time means I've lost my bet on this [webmasterworld.com] thread. Duh.

Geez I'm sweating, trembling, even had a nap for a couple of hours just to get my mind of it. But I can't! Even dreamt of it!

And the saddest part about it, I never had these symptoms before I came to this site yesterday. I didn't even bother! It all went past me without a twitch. and now, see what happened. A whimpering SEO going slightly mad.

I guess, finally, I lost it.

Maybe the webmasters of this site should write a disclaimer:
We are not responsible for any madness and crazyness of nervous seo's ;-)

I have a script that alerts me when the number is different from 657,000 (checks every 10 mins)- and it gave me an alert yesterday.. which means the number may have temporarily changed.
Perhaps it got fed from a different server temporarily? Was rather annoying!

The "Odds on Google" thread made Google decide not to update this month because a spare Google mousepad could not be allocated for use as a prize.

*lol* good one!

i have a question though:
a delayed google update means a delayed spidering after google update. correct?!

that means i am winning time to accomplish a site i want to have in the index in november/december >> i am happy about the situation.

Not necessarily. Google may be spidering already for the next update and storing that data.

Yeah, if he knew the update was going to be late this month like it was he could have been a nice Googleguy and saved a lotta SEO types some grief. Such might keep down speculation of "Google is broken" or sort circulating around too.

Nope! At least not for us. We have been hit pretty hard the last few days :)

What if....there's no more big update....and there's hundreds of Google employees betting on how long we're going to hang on hoping and waiting for the update.....

There hasn't been material little updates either. I guess in theory being able to do lots of updates on the fly would result in the best and freshest index. At this point this seems beyong Google's ability. The complexity of calculating PageRank would make doing this difficult.

Must Update ...

Need the Update ....

Up ...Date ... Up ....Date

Please Mr. Google...

Please Ms. Googlebot ...

Please GoogleGuy ....

For the love of god ...and google....

This next update will either have me quiting my day job, or it will kill me (my job) either way. I have worked endlessly on a number of new websites. All month they have been pulling in bits of traffic from the google fresh tags ....I know they got spidered last month for this update. I wonder what will crack sooner me or webmasterworld from all these "please update posts".

GoogleGuy, for the sake of Chef_Brian mental health, PUSH THE UPDATE BUTTON. Personally I did quite well in the last update, and the update being delayed isn't exactly the worst thing I can imagine. However, seeing webmasters like Chef_Brian in agony like this does touch my heart. ;)

I believe the update is programmed to happen when nobody does a query for link:www.yahoo.com for 10 minutes. OK everybody, hold your breath...
