The Survivors of BigDaddy :-)

Good morning Folks

It seems the following 3 remaining sets of "old" DCs refuse to be converted to BigDaddy!

[66.102.9.99...]
[66.102.9.104...]

[66.102.11.99...]
[66.102.11.104...]

[216.239.59.99...]
[216.239.59.104...]

Enjoy the look of the old infrastructure while its still there ;-)

I still see my good results on these two datacenters (64.233.187.99 & 64.233.187.104).

I don't belive its the sandbox being lifted, because my pages are 8 years old, and they would never be caught in the sandbox in the first place.

Is It a Possible Bug on Some BigDaddy DCs?

Hi Folks

How the title of your homepage look like when you run command

site:www.yoursite.com

on the following two BigDaddy DCs

[64.233.187.99...]

[64.233.187.104...]

Here is how WebmasterWorld title look like when run the site: command:

[64.233.187.99...]

[64.233.187.104...]

In both cases the title of www.webmasterworld.com shows as: Webmaster World , which isn't the correct title of WebmasterWorld homepage [webmasterworld.com...]

------------------------
Webmaster World
Brett Tabke hosts professional webmaster and search engine promotion discussions.
www.webmasterworld.com/ - Similar pages
-------------------------------

Now if you run a search on the same two DCs for webmasterworld

[64.233.187.99...]

[64.233.187.104...]

then you will see the same homepage of WebmasterWorld listed with the correct title, as follows:

The first title and description are from Dmoz....
If you search for the site URL you get that result.

"The first title and description are from Dmoz....

If its the case, then why don't we see the same on the other BigDaddy DCs as:

[64.233.179.99...]

[64.233.179.104...]

site:www.webmasterworld.com

[64.233.179.99...]

[64.233.179.104...]

In both cases show the "correct" title ;-)

Because, although they may be Big Daddy DC's, not all are updated at exactly the same time.

Updated for what?

Would you be kind to elaborate more.

reseler :the DC watch does not bring anything to the main sickness ,do you know that your beloved google with all the mess ,bugs ,updates and mostly the missing pages from great quality websites gives the opportunity to every scum webpunk to duplicate great sites and claim that the content its his or hers.Why don't you tell that to your friend....

Sure! I have two friends who both launched new websites 2 months ago, one day apart. Both have already been listed in DMOZ.

Most Big Daddy Dc's have already picked up both sites. Some of those DC's are using the DMOZ description and some are using the site's description tag. Those DC's using the DMOZ description are the freshest.

It's quote obvious something is very screwy with those two datacenters. What it is I do not know...It would sure be nice to see Google elaborate on those two datacenters because quite a few of us are not sandboxed on those DC's.

The last non-BD DC I was watching (216.239.59.147) just switched over to displaying BD results a few minutes ago.

Thanks!

I'm aware only of the two following BigDaddy DCs which are showing DMOZ description for command site:
According to your point of view, they should be the freshest. right?

Correction!

"I'm aware only of the two following BigDaddy DCs which are showing DMOZ description for command site:

The two mentioned DCs show for site: command, DMOZ title not the description.

For anyone who might be interested. I was posting about the continuous climb of my page counts to the 25.000 page level last week. That climb started from below the 1000 page level. This was on BD.

Now this week, page count has been falling. I'm at around the 15.000 page level right now. This ranges up and down several hundred depending on the DC.

However, even with the decrease in page count I haven't seen a decline in search traffic. I expect that page counts should turn around again soon and continue on to new highs for BD DCs.

Wow, I found a search result 1 - 100 of about 1,940,000 that contains only redirects to the same 4-5 sites over and over again.

I hope the PR update corrects this!.

My site is now showing a large increase in indexed pages. Prior to BD I had over 1 million pages indexed (products and product categories), it dropped down to as low as 70,000. Now it's up to 300,000 on a number of the DCs.

Apparently google is finally displaying all the pages that they've been indexing over the past couple of weeks. I'd watch for similar behaviours on your sites.

Ladies and Gentelmen...Please Welcome The New Google

Hi Folks!

New Google infrastructure calls for new way of thinking regarding our sites indexing and ranking. I said it before..nothing will be the same on Google from now on.

I know, many kind fellow members finding it hard to understand whats happening. "Classic" explanations for current situations would bring us anywhere. If you notice changes on the DCs, try to look for "fresh" analysis and understanding.

And don't expect "The Kentuckian" or GoogleGuy to tell us the whole story. There are things in any company that employees can't tell "outsiders" about. We should understand and respect our good friends at the plex situations.

Wish you all a great day.. high ranking and more pages indexing on The Mother of All Search Engines...Google ;-)

Hey all! Good news for us. We finally rank #1 for our unique company name. It has been a year since we seen this. Still the rest of the site is supplemental. There is hope again!

Also our home page is finally correct at #1 in the site: command. Haven't seen this forever also. Keeping fingers crossed that we may be back to normal sometime soon.

Has the homepage got a fresh cache?

Mar 15, 2006 is the homepage cache.

Anything supplemental has old cache dates.

Just exciting to see us coming up #1 for our unique company name again. Even cool to see the homepage back to #1 in the site command.

Moz bot crawling really good also. 99% code 200/304 pages. 1 404 page and 0 - 301 redirects (due to non www to www versions).

NOTE: the target pages are not brand new ones.

What's going on? G has flooded the index with page versions over a year old - hundreds of pages of my site have gone supplemental. :((((

I was just checking some DCs. All RK-Values set to zero. Even if I open google, it currently shows PR0 in the toolbar. There's something going on, I think. Search results as normal, however, at least for my major keywords.

I have 3 different results now from all the dc's and in each case mostly supplemental and about 1/20th of the number of index pages I had before. This keeps getting better by the minute.
