You know something we don't?

<You know something we don't?>

This thread is just too long and filled with speculation :) If something does happen then you are soon going to find out.

It's a more logical supposition than "Hey, let's put all the new sites in a sandbox so the owners will have to buy AdWords." (If Google really wanted to force affiliates and e-commerce vendors to buy AdWords, why would it limit its efforts to new sites? It could achieve much broader results--and far bigger profits--by deranking commercial sites across the board.)

The results I reported yesterday on 216.239.37.104 have now replicated over to the primary index

Perhaps you are hitting 216.239.37.104 IP for your primary www?

I too see the results we saw as a glimpse over mid December on 216.239.37.104.

I just see rubbish...

allinurl:oneofmysites.org.uk
49 results
Two are my url, 47 are something completely different.

Click on more from oneofmysites.org.uk
370 results

Makes no sense at all.

As long as we're complaining...

Google has my site so messed up right now in the index that my income has dropped over 70%. Pages missing, URLs with no description and title, other peoples URLs coming up in the site command, sigh...

I'm doing fine in Google, but I don't mind complaining as a user. Just the other day I was searching for information on a prescription drug's side effects, and all of the top 10 results were affiliate sell pages or AdSense scraper pages. (There was even a page with the title "hot [drug name] videos," which didn't make a lot of sense for a drug that had nothing to do with sex or even hot flashes. :-)

More complaints...
Google still thinks one of my sites is a mirror of a Yahoo store. It's been 6 months. I even have links to internal pages. Google still doesn't get it.

MSN and Yahoo get it.

Quote (and understatement) of the year, so far:
Google still doesn't get it.

Now that MSN is full fledged and out of BETA what will Google do? Drop supplemental results? Increase their pages indexed by two fold? I anticipate some new BS Google ploy tomorrow!

and using Google's new double-it algorithm, I see...

It's indexed 947 pages from one of my sites.
My site's only got 382 pages....

Google - often copied, seldom beaten...
