Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
What do you think about that?
Merry xmas. :-)
22.214.171.124 is the one. They throw this into the searches at random intervals. They'll be adding another one after the holidays.
We’re getting closer to calling for feedback on 126.96.36.199, but I probably won’t ask for reactions for another week or two. Right now that datacenter isn’t serving traffic 100% of the time as people pull it out of the rotation from time to time to tune things up under the hood. That data center has some infrastructure that I think in time will work better for canonicalization and redirects. We also recently improved site: to show slightly more logical urls as well. src [mattcutts.com]
When you see these elevated counts, do a quick series of searches on your favorite keywords, and you may get a rough picture of where your site will be when google starts rolling out those data centers sometime early next year, after the holidays.
That data center also seems to maybe have resolved the site page overcounting bug.
As noted in the quote, the results change a bit as they tweak them, but overall they seem to be pretty good from what I can see.
For those who continue to display an unhealthy obsession with supplementals, they are still present, but shoved to the back of the results when using site: command
Also of note is that site:domain.com may return significantly different results than site:domain.com/
...that is, unless your site is in the 33 million position. ;-)
I think it might be hilltop type searches that are seeing the biggest changes, not sure yet, that's my first impression.
Several sites I follow are seeing much better positioning in the new data center, one has returned from jagger netherworlds, another comes up top 30 from deep in the 2 or 3 hundreds, where it's sat for a long time. Another dropped for a major keyword phrase, totally out.
I'm not worrying about it, doesn't matter, but it's fairly different on all the sites I track for the money keywords, the more complex searches just move up or down a few spots.
if we see a PageRank update, a BackLinks update, why should we not see an FoundResults update?
I think that would complete the picture google gives me about its "rhythm":
BackLinks, PageRank, RankingOrder, FoundResults ...
next step is BackLinks again...
2 cents for the jar,
