Someone asked how often in our experience the SERPS updates appear to come along.

There is a record of these in various sites and it looks like about every 3 months, which makes us on for the next update now (last one was May) There was also a major PR update about a month ago.

GoogleGuy posted in this discussion that there would probably be a PR / Back Links update between now and December. I have to say I find that a bit vague GoogleGuy. I really apreciate your posts here but that one is not exactly revealing, and was correctly followed by the question - "but what about the SERPS?" Considering that we have had a major PR update recently it is the logical next step, and if I'm not mistaken its part of the cycle Google is following.

Now I will speculate a bit...most business don't change their processes continually but establish a routine or pattern that they follow. Indeed they have certain people who perform certain roles, with certain consequences. So we might for example see a process like this for Google:

1 - review the SERPS looking for weaknesses and abuse
2 - suggest ways to counter-act these
3 - test some results on one datacenter with a modified algorythm
4 - review results and tweak to improve
5 - deep spider to get the latest picture of the web
6 - apply new algorythm universally (major SERPS update)
7 - review results and apply any tweaks
8 - start updating back links
9 - update PR based on back links and page data
10 - release the supposed PR value to the toolbar, knowing that this only tells half the story
11 - start over from 1

Of course theres a question of chickens and eggs, but you get the idea. In my guess this whole process takes about 3 months, although it may be more complicated now that they have to consider the comercial aspects of the results. I bet theres even a monthly meeting about SERPs. What fun that must be.

Last visible PR update I see was on June 18.

All files added by Sat, 18 Jun 2005 10:46:40 MST have PR and all files added after that do not have PR.

It wasn't easy to find but I've dug up this link for a discussion here about the PR update when it happened in July - [webmasterworld.com ]

I think it was pretty conclusive and our sites did actually change PR from 5 to 6 at the time

May not be an update but something is certainly going on with the database right now. I'm based in the UK using Google.co.uk

Would you be kind to post which sector your site is related to.

Thanks.

Yeah, you're pretty right :)) I remember this update and thread you pointed to. It seemed to me it was such a long time ago - on holidays so many things happen I can't believe it was less than two months ago! So certainly we must wait for at least about one and a half month for another toolbar update. November perhaps.

Hmm, my pick was September 3rd for the next update. That doesn't give me much time and things look pretty stable to me right now.

I hope someone didn't forget to push the button before they left the plex today.

For my testing keyphrases the DCs look stable, though I still se various sets of serps on different DCs. Which tells me that things arenīt stable yet.

An update is pending, I guess ;-)
