How can you tell which data centers are updated and which are not? I'm seeing vastly different results between data centers, but I don't know which are the new results and which are not.

Should I take the lack of responses to mean that there isn't a way to tell?

For example - are there certain data centers that usually get updated before the others?

Thanks in advance.

Updated just means changed, so you can tell when something is updated when the results change. They change all the time, even if they changed twelve hours before.

Personally it seems to me that 216.239.57.104 is (unfortunately) the one to pay the most attention to.

More to the point I guess, Google never finishes updating.

Well, for what it's worth, the results on this datacenter seem to me the best for my favorite keywords... except for the #2 result:
searched terms: white widgets
title of #2 site: "black widgets, miscellaneous gizmos, fuzzy widgets" (with black in this case meaning the exact opposite of white...).
In the past, I have seen sites with "non-white widgets" also ranking high for this query. From these examples, it is clear that the Google's algos still have a lot to learn about language...
