Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
There seems to be a certain amount of flux, OR removal of pages, as the total number of search results on any given keyword has changed since yesterday on .9.104.
Also, in my case, a keyword I check, moved from position 62 to 27 overnight, and another moved from 27 to 28. In relative terms they are minor changes, but shows at least there is some movement.
Do you still do OK in image search results?
For one of my sites I get about 10:1 ratio of Image to Normal search results. Different industry - but is not a lot of your traffic image serp driven?
It just seems crazy, and not much logic to some of the goings on.
I'm about 40% down on image search comparing Fridays traffic and pre drop, why you got some cunning plan.
BTW cheers for making me look at my old figures - now depressed again
Oh another note still no movement on the spam report I put into GG - mind you he did say to watch it over the weekend so I'll keep you updated if anything happens
I was just intrested in your experience with Image results.
If my site has been given a penalty for a reason I dont know about - the penalty in my case does not apply to the image results.
As Google dont look like they are fixing Canonical issues then I would still consider doing a 301 from non-www to www if I was you.
Although G does not show your non-www as an entry in the index - the non-www does have different PR and BLs.
edit - actually, not all, and the ones without the strap line are performing better - coincidence? Probably!

just looked at that and one of my sites that is still holding a bit and that has same title/heading and is number one, although one thing I have noticed is that term has very little anchor text both off/on site pointing to it - maybe anchors are starting to go against the webmaster
>>Like Dayo, Lee and tigger I'm also hoping for further beneficial flux.<<
I don't know whether this could be considered "beneficial flux" or not. But I see a general flux through out ALL the DCs within the sector I'm watching; marketing and advertising.
Please fasten your seat belt, Flux Turbulence Ahead :-)
GoogleGuy is a man of his word. He said there will be flux to come after Jagger3!
Yes, he did - Reseller how long did he say? - I think he even said weeks.
But as I mentioned earlier - from his point of view the update is probably finished - eg the new code/algo etc is out there and spreading accross dcs.
">>>GoogleGuy is a man of his word. He said there will be flux to come after Jagger3!

I recall asking him twice. In both cases he said there will be a flux. I don't recall him mentioning a specific flux period.
But my feeling is around two weeks, as in Bourbon. I have posted that for few days ago, but some of the folks were sad to hear it, so I kept quite ;-)
Probably sick and tired of this update :(
Just noticed something about a site that I 301'd the non-www to www ages ago - the 301 was picked up by Google about July time.
However, the non-www is showing different PR and BL to the WWW again. :(
Sooooo - even though it appears that Google picks up and recognizes the 301 - it still seems to be able to come back and split them again :(
It seems to be a very deep rooted problem - however, MC did say that new 301 stuff is coming in soon (Hmmmz - cant remember now - might be after Xmas even) - maybe that will help.
I have given my business until Xmas - if no improvements Dayo is going back to P/T Webmaster I guess.
There is all indications that the folks at the plex are still busy in tweaking and who knows with what else.
The "cache" case, the current flux are some of these indications.
Its my FEELING, no more no less.. that the folks at the plex still working to improve the final results of Jagger3. Don't expect GG or Matt to talk about it... Fair enough!
I have heard some reports of people having issues with doing a 301 from olddomain.com to newdomain.com. Iím happy to hear those reports in the comments and I can pass them on to the crawl/indexing team, but we may be due to replace the code that handles that in the next couple months or so.
I wonder if a 301 from non-www to www actually counts as two different domains - hmmmz
Intresting comments in that thread also - eg about Google not recognizing 301s (esp supplementals) I suppose this is what has/is happen(ed)ing to some of my old non-www.
I get different results (better) on 18.104.22.168 so J3 is just on 22.214.171.124. Do you see 9 migrate to other data centers?
