agh, i guess i'll need another month to finish up fixing up my site. it indexed a few more thousand pages because i made the URLs search engine friendly, and i went up from page 4 on the main keyword to page 3. backlinks went from 26 to 38...
i have noticed that a few pages that link to me don't show up when i search for backlinks...? is it still doing stuff and final results aren't ready?
also titles/descriptions for a lot of the posts in my forum are not appearing...
I just went from 175 indexed pages to 144. At one point earlier this month I was up to 195 including new additions spidered by Minty. Some pages that were included in the last update are missing now on ww2 and ww3.. this is too much to handle this early on a Sunday morning.. I did not see G bot at all this month, only Freshbot..
BTW: www, ww2 and ww3 are all showing 642K here in chilly Chicagoland
I'm very happy! :)
I was searching www3 until the wee hours of the morning.
I am popping up on some page 1 results my first try. OK- granted...not the most competitive phrases...but I'll take it.
I've learned _A LOT_ since I put my site up. Been working on clients site instead of mine though. So, won't be able to implement what I learned here until next month.
I was wondering appx how long it will take for www2 results to filter into the main DB?
Also, why is this called the January update? Is this not the start for the February update?
Hmm...my new site first got indexed last month. Meaning if I searched "mydomain" in Google, I saw every page was indexed and cached by Google. (GOOD GoogleBot!)
But back then I could not enter any search phrases and find my site on Google. So, I know- have patience...and now I show up under a bunch of phrases! :)
But in www2 and www3 and main Google- it does not find any links to my site using "link:www.mydomain.com"
I know for fact I have at least 3 links to my site with PR4 and above. Why is Google not counting my links?
The links to my site have been in place since before last update.
I saw people are getting strange results for backlinks in www2 and www3, but I get none.
Any suggestions as to why my links don't show?
<<So, the deep crawling from first couple weeks of Februrary will be finalized end of Februrary. <<
Sometimes during the Update backlinks do not show, sometimes it takes Google longer to find backlinks
I don't know why it sometimes lasts longer to find a link but finally Google finds them all!;)
Still, I never take anything for granted until the update is over. I've occasionally seen jumps in PageRank and SERP placement during an update, only to have things slip back to more normal levels afterwards.
Regarding the update - I'm down a few notches on my most searched for terms, but I've gotten a more pages in for lesser searched terms and those are doing well. I can live with that. And I always keep my fingers crossed that the final version is better than the dance version.
