Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Am definetely seeing changes on the datacenters mentioned for money kw's - well all kw's - looks like they have upped the importance of the title tag at first glance.
Brett - are you seeing a spike in traffic to WebmasterWorld - You have said previously said that - that has been one of your fist signs of an update. With people coming here to see if it is for real.
All my pages are still in the index, no URL only or supplemental listings, but still showing up below the irrelevant stuff.
I'm thinking (as I did last fall) that my domain name with 3 dashes is being frowned on with some kind of algo knob - if only I could move to another domain with semi-predictable results.
If the results stick on this DC and spread then, in my area at least, this are Googles finest results for quite some time.
Relevance is there, I am not seeing any real problems, indeed some sites that should rank for their main name and dropped in previous updates are back where they should be. IMHO this certainly is an update and not a reshuffle, fundamnetal changes, and for the better!
Credit where credit is due, I just hope they don't rollback or wreck them later.
Incidently, these serps make MSN look like amateurs, in my field at least.

On the other hand, quite a bit of very weak garbage has been spit up, which if typical of these middling updates will fade away in a few days.
