Now that the fat lady has sung, what do you think about the latest update?

Sorry Brett, I didn't mean to say you are a fat lady. Just a figure of speech. ;) Now that the final election...err, update results are in, time for people to evaluate the new algo. Look better than last month? Worse? About the same?

>This relates to another topic but it's funny how when it's your own sites that all rank in the top 10 it's fine and when it's a competitor it's wrong and should be reported.

This is because when ones sites rank in the top 10, this is proof to that person Google is doing a good job. ;)

Hi Eric,

Yes, we could think that they changed their algo and sites with fewer links to them should see their PR decreased... but the strange thing is that not all sites decreased. Coincidence or not, only the comercial ones decreased. I still see Universities (like mine) with only 706 links to them, and they still have their PR7. And by the other hand, one of our biggest portals, with 4550 links, decreased to PR6.
On my case I could only think that they decreased the value of my DMOZ link (but the DMOZ page still has PR7, and no new links were added), because nothing really changed.
Maybe they are giving an extra boost to quality only links (with high PR, or relevant subjects), because sites with few links to them, still have high PRs.

Sincerely,

Nuno Oliveira

I'll gather tigger that your sites didn't hit #1 for a couple of critical single word searches like mine did in the last update? ;)

I could live with not getting single keywords at high rankings, in fact my rankings for quite a few keywords have jumped up quite well, but it's my vanished PR & links that has somewhat upset me (and others), Ive dropped an email to google asking if they could shed some light on this, so far the only responce has been the auto reply
