Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Looks like more Datacenters have been updated to Big Daddy. I am seeing lots of traffic from 18.104.22.168
My new sites are getting tons of traffic from google.com today.

We are not talking about the same sector then.
I can go to to a pay per click serach engine and find better results that dont give me links to pages that install certain software automatically with almost every other result.
I can find better pages on a pay per click serch engine that doesnt give me a pr 1 blog page with a just one keyword phrase on it that has nothing to do with the keyword subject.
I can go to a pay per click search engine that doesnt give me 10-15 404's per 100 results.
Google let off an atomic web bomb in my sector in December and all that is left are the big guys and non-relevant spammy crap.
The title and meta desciption was changed on these pages, on the site, on February 27th, and just a few days later, Google updatd the cache date to show Feb 26th - in fact a cache that was dated just hours before the changes were made (Grrr).
Yesterday, the Google results at 22.214.171.124 started showing the new title and the snippet shows the new meta description, but the cache still shows the old version of the page, and is still dated Feb 26th.
Another feature as to how Google works: The title and snippet for a page as shown in the SERPs are not generated from the cached page that the result links to.
A DC I was sure was Big Daddy has gone back to Non-Big Daddy.
We have the supplemental mess, canonical mess, 301/302 mess etc and Big Daddy was supposed to solve this with new infastructure.
So where are we at this stage - it seems further than ever away from any fix to these issues.
I agree that it make sense - but I am very much of the opinion that the reason for the supplementals is because Google is still using parts of the old data to rank and crawl pages on the Big Daddy DC.
Google I think are juggling to many balls at the moment by trying to keep both indexes.
Today we had a poster who has gone down to 3 pages in Big Daddy, <RK> indicates that the site has a PR7 in Big Daddy (Which looks about right as it has a PR8 inbound).....
In Big Daddy the homepage looks fine - however in non-big daddy this site looks like it has very much been hijacked - eg doing a "www.domain.com" search and you get a "www.differingdomain.com/url/html/125.htm"
I just feel that Google has to give up on the old ranking calculations for Big Daddy to progress.
BTW - you said you are suffering from Canonical problems - did you go to PR0 - what does the <rk> tool show for you in the Big Daddy and Non-Big Daddy DCs - for my Home Page Canonical problems the <RK> tool looks like PR is returning.
Of course this depends on whether <RK> is indeed PR.
I really miss those reassuring statements ... NOT!

Many pages that no longer exist across the web (most supplemental). Pages from one of my sites removed and confirmed removed via Removal Tool up to 3 months ago.
Right now .de and .ca seem current, much else is the ancient BD index that existed on BD dc's since last fall.
