Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Try checking out Bill Gates record with internet partners. Looksmart, Keywords, and even on Windows there partnership with IBM. If you think that MSN would give a #*$! your site had been deleted from free serps let alone work themselves to death to fix the problem and update us as they do I think you should just look at there history.
Compare there behaviour then to people like aol, ebay and google.
I'm seeing far better results on my local DC for today (22.214.171.124). The number of results returned is closer to actual site pages, and most (but not all) of the supplemental results actually should be supplemental (dead pages that were removed over a year ago but keep showing up like a bad dream).
I have noticed that the older, larger sites in my sector have been hit far worse than my own site. They are down to just the home page before repeating "the search with the omitted results included". One of those sets of results ends at around 100 pages for a site that is larger than 10,000 pages even when "repeated". I'd hate to be in their shoes, although my own aren't fitting quite right at the moment.

I am now showing active content. Nowhere near what I had before, but definitely better than no content. 41,000 pages compared to 419,000.
I would like to say that this bug effectively destroyed any rankings that I have worked so hard on in the past 2-3 years. So if you think the rankings will come back with the fix, hate to disappoint you. My pages are ranking nowhere near if at all compared to previously. If you are seeing your rankings restored, then I will only pray I get them as well. Does not look that way yet though.
All the data centres we are monitoring have varied results ..... but again there is an appalling quality of results and relevance, particularily on the regional filters.
Without doubt, at this stage Yahoo is better and surfers would have to switch to them to get relevant results .... they simply have no choice, so Google need to mindful of this. People have to switch.
Some of the Google alteration strategies may be too fast for the website community .
We're still out ..... only the home page is not supplementary .... so there's still hope
As you pages are crawled, they'll be reindexed. That is how it works. Any supplemetals you had are still there in the background.
But I am not sure that this come back is the effect of recent crawl. The cached versions of these pages, as well as their titles and snippets, are one or 2 weeks old. It looks to me like some of them are the result of crawls that happened before the problem occured.
