Noticed changes in PR for sites of mine right now! Finally!

Actually, we did not even put AdSense on member websites, because these websites have a higher CTR, siteusers usually check every link on their websites. These websites were simply created as a free option for members to have their own company websites with an easy to remember domain name. Of course, we did put a "Powered by ..." link at the bottom of these pages, we have to support somehow the servers and the bandwidth...

And something else. I had about 110 - 120 thousands of pages indexed on google. When I search "mydomain" without www. and .com on the top I see:
Results 1 - 1 of about 113,000 for mydomain. (0.03 seconds)
And it only shows one result "Free Submit website to MyDomain" from a totally unrelated domain...

zoltan,
reading on another site, several other people are reporting the same. I wonder if its a glitch, proactive (google checking "suspicious" sites) or just google acting on "spam" /other complaints.

I have also read on another thread here on WebmasterWorld that Directory sites seems to be somehow penalized from today.
What is strange is that my yahoo referrals are still strong or stronger day after day.

Also, could the number of pages on the site have led to a a manual review? With the flood of huge computer-generated sites these days, Google may be looking more closely at a database-driven site of 110,000-120,000 pages than it would have done in the past.

>> database-driven site of 110,000-120,000 pages

that would be a good move. Very few legitimate sites can just pop up with that many pages overnight.

Did anyone else notice something weird with their sites today? I lost PR on four of my sites and they were completely removed from their normal position on the SERPs; also, I've heard rumors that the cache files have reverted to copies from 2003 and before. What happened?

We have cache dates of 2004 for a large chunk of our pages... The dates are Nov. 27 and Dec. 1 2004. Very strange.

My sites have all jumped up from PR5 to PR6 in this update, but without affecting the SERPs in any way. Does anyone here think the change in PR will have an effect later on in SERPs or do you think the factors that created the PR increase have already been taken into account in the SERPs? I appreciate your feedback.

It is not happening overnight... The site is active since 2002 November. Considering that we have close to 100,000 members (not bought databases as many other sites, they all registered) that submit their own content (many site sections), 110 - 120 thousands of pages is not a lot at all. It is a business portal used by thousands of companies.

zoltan,

I launched a major new section of my site in early May, and the toolbar PR gauge for the home page has been empty (all white) until now. This morning I noticed a PR6 green bar, which must have appeared in the last two or three days at most.

In other words, it's taken a little more than 2-1/2 months for PageRank to display on the new index.html page. I don't know if that's typical, but it's nice to have confirmation that the page isn't lost in space.

This 493 message thread spans 17 pages: 493
