Definately getting different results on backward links for yahoo. www showing 657k and www2 and www3 showing 654k. Results for CNN are also different. Looks like the real deal.

I'm seeing it too! With total fear and dread I check to see if I am in the index. Whew, YES! HOLY MOTHER! #2 on 2 single important keywords at the moment. Looks like I slipped on position for another single keyword down page #1 though. Of course, by the end of the dance things may not be so good. However, looks like worst case scenarios like being dropped didn't happen.

Hey cool, my site is listed. How long does this dance actually last? I was only six hours off when I took a guess a week ago.

Same here rfgdxm1! Was very scared at first when i didnt see my page where it normally was for my sites main keyword(page 5)... went to page 4... yikes! didnt see it there either... was thinking either i got dropped, or my sites on page 3 or better! Went to page 3, bam there I am! AMAZING... IM HAPPY.... YAY....

Congrats rfgdxm1! I was scared too! (Was scared cause I recently added a 301 redirect, and heard this is what Google likes, but also heard this could be bad, but seems to be OK!)

> Laz will verify

So, is the maestro confirmed? I'm surprised that GoogleGuy didn't win the mousemat.
