Hi Folks

It seems that what we thought to be testing serps on the test DC [64.233.179.104...] have suddenly today started showing on "defaults" googles, as google.de, google.co.uk and google.com etc...
While the test DC isn't showing anymore the new serps.

I'm starting this thread to post our remarks concerning the new serps.

Thanks!

he says that his next post will call for Big Daddy feedback - does this normally mean we're near to roll-out?

Within the last couple of hours, I observed a deep, distinctive, two-stage Mozilla activity: At first stage, Google deep crawled all (and only)existing pages. After that, it again crawled all (and only) nonexistent pages.

This is the first time that I observed such a highly structured, organized crawl. This may be the last crawl before throwing all 404 pages, supplementals, etc. into the waste basket forever!

Also, MC declared on his blog page that they are now ready to receive feedbacks for the Bigdaddy. It is really an interesting and informative reading, indeed.

The WebmasterWorld server seems to have gone painfully slow.

But now we know what Big Daddy is all about, and that it will probably be the default SERP's, even though it's not an update, but rather new infrastructure.

Let's hope some of you guys with problems get them solved by this.

Looks like Big Daddy isn't rolling out across all data centers for a month or two.

Mozilla Googlebot also hit quite a few of the URLs showing as supplemental for me on this test DC. Fortunately, I had just fixed these and noticed 410s being sent to Google. Although Matt says these supplementals don't matter in ranking.

He's asked for feedback.

That's kind of puzzling. Nothing is fixed. The one canonical thing people mention is the site: ordering, but that is like the URL hiding tool. It's just an illusion. So what if the site: command sorts things better if the rankings for such pages are still poisoned by Google's refusal to obey 301, deletions and other directions for what the canonical pages actually are.

"in time" there might be something meaty here, but now <snore>, same old same old, with results moved around some.

... and the test results are gone for me this minute too...

I'm quite surprised there isn't more discussion about the post on Matt Cutt's blog and the "Big Daddy" update, particularly since he links to this forum. On his blog, Matt says that the update is live on 64.233.179.104 and 66.249.93.104 right now, but they seem to come on and off line quite often. 66.249.93.104 just became big daddified again.

Overall I'm liking this new update, or whatever it is. Seems to be un-sandboxing/listing one of my newer sites that would appear on SERPs before, and there is a general small shuffle of sites. Looking good to me anyway, hopefully they won't make too many drastic changes before it all goes online.

Matt blogs:

" Bigdaddy is only live at 64.233.179.104 and 66.249.93.104 right now."

I get different results on those two DC's.
