Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Current BigDaddy status from what I can see:
- BD is visible on (using 'sf giants' test)
That is around 1/3 of datacenters listed on the McDar tool (I think).
- For me at least BD is returning a significantly lower number of indexed pages.
- BD index is still clogged full of scrapers, doorways and 404s. Meanwhile the sites sticking by the guidelines are getting trounced.
Google puzzle me.

It used to be that when we started out with a couple of DC, I could tell what was what. Right now I see different results across the board where it looks like there's on-going updates of the non-BD as well as the BD, in addition to the roll-out of BD.
I'm still hoping the BD is the one where we can forget about the word canonical. Doesn't look like any progress on supplementals (have we forgotten about THEM?).
I redesigned a website with all pages finished by 1-19-06. Most of the pages were tagged with Supplementals because the previous designer had copied text off other sites. I tested every line in those pages in Google and rewrote any lines that had been used elsewhere. Now with this update all those pages are no longer supplemental.
My local G is : 184.108.40.206 (mentioned in the list above)
Look again. Those pages will be returned as normal results only when you search for content that is on the page now, but will still show up as a "Supplemental Result" when you search for words that used to be on the page but are no longer so.
The cache shown for the normal result will be a modern cache from the last few weeks. For a supplemental result (for the same URL) it will be interesting to see if the cache is shown as the modern one, or whether it links to one from many months ago that still shows the OLD content.
Either scenario can occur.

I don't usually follow the updates but this time I have built a site for a friend and I'm sort of interested to see how my SEO works in a niche alien to me. I hope the SERPs hold out as they are as for the first time in ages I got the number 1 spot for the 2 keywords I'm pushing and the site has only been up for 3 weeks.
Woohoo for me.
(shame I cant do it as well with my aff sites)
Now for back to the topic. I live in Pennsylvania and the past two days I noticed my site which was new and had PR0 has been showing PR4 when I first check it around 6:00am but by 6:30am it goes back to PR0? Here are my results. Is this normal?
The number behind the IP is my reported PR on InLock.
Way to go Google your improving search results (hands clapping), looks absolutely terrific! /sarcasm /rolling eyes.
