Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I probably should keep quiet because my sites are more or less returned (except one which went into supplimental never-never land)
Looking around at the SERPS and stepping back a bit I see some really strange stuff in there,
unprofessional junk, and some sites in dev that clearly never expected to be seen!. I suppose now they are in the results they will clean up their sites to face the public, but it looks bad for Google and so Google must lose credibiltiy, not sure what to make of it but I don't think Google will be stopping here, I really don't think they will want to.
So unfortunately I see the whole dreadfull saga dragging on bit from here... I wonder how long it will take them to get the SERPS back to where they were at the begining of September!
>>GG did say when asked "when is the next update" - "somewhere between now and Xmas"<<
Not exactly :-)

Probably between now and december you'll see PR/backlinks change..
"Dont think I can bring myself to create a spam report!
Especially after my nice white hat site gets slammed."
That is ok just send over your URL and one of us will be more than willing to help send the spam report for ya! LOL
Current Example Results:
Search : widget lifestyle
Results: A store that sells widget pools (among other things to make a widget lifestyle better.)
I wanted to know information about widget lifestyle...I didn't want to buy a pool to improve my widget lifestyle :) It relates, but not enough to be listed on page 1 or even 2 or 3.
PS A widget lifestyle is very complex with as many kids as I have ;)
Thank you for the very generous offer but NO! I can send in my own spam reports on your sites. Maybe not they are not spammy - but I can always raise that doubt at the plex.
What goes around, comes around - ever heard that?

My site disappeared down to the page 20's during the Bourbon update, to be replaced by sites that spam, cloak and steal my content - all the way to the top of the serps - and they are still there. I don't expect the divine right to be at the top of the serps. I do expect to outrank the spammers, cloakers and content thieves and I do in every other search engine. Way to go google
Search for a film review, include the name of the site you want to see the review from and what do you get?
Heaps of links to the page in question, followed by the wrong page on the site with (finally!) the required page underneath.
Needless to say the page doesn't appear at all unless the site name is included. And our home page is PR 6/10.
Google send a standard response to enquiries about this that achieves nothing. And still the results are awful, with no recourse for us to do anything about it. If it was 1789 there'd be barricades.
Movie Review search [google.co.uk]
And yes, it is a bad film.

Would do it myself, but G would probably take your business pretty soon away .. so I'd rather not touch it.
Like burning your hands trying to improve Windows lol if it works Billy will grab it. ;)

The older you get..the less sleep hours you need ... The more you enjoy life. Have any of you youngesters ever thought about that.
As such I guess Matt "Inigo" Cutts is an old man, because he only sleep few hours a day :-)
Ok. I see Jagger3 DC is still alive this morning, and the dog hasnīt eaten it yet. Canīt say the same about part-2 of Jagger Update thread.
GoogleGuy said yesterday that we are in the middle of Tha Father of All FLUX, and indeed we are.
Jagger3 results should have spread to other DCs by now, that what GG told us yesterday. Any of you have noticed significate "expansion" of J3?
Wish you all a great Jagger3 day.
As you might have noticed some of the folks here have sent WebSpam Team spam reports. However, the same folks don't see much action has been taken to remove spammers from Jagger3 serps in particular or default google index in general.
Of course we know that WebSpam Team has to verify and investigate spam reports before removing spam sites.
Few words from you or Matt assuring the folks that you are taking care of those spam reports, shall for sure encourage my fellow webmaster members to continue sending those spam reports.
P.S. any available weather report shall be highly appreciated :-)
