< continued from [webmasterworld.com...] >

In other BD indexes (like [66.249.93.104...] etc) I now see that some old Supplemental Results for pages and sites that no longer exist are disappearing from the search results.

I have waited years for this moment. We already had several false starts on this over the last few months. The pages were dropped, and then reappeared a day or two later.

Be gone for good this time!

I have seen something right now - and I still can't believe it. One of my old sites has been closed and redirected to a new domain with a proper 301 since November 2004.

Guess what - it's back in Google.com. All pages supplemental.

I see 64.233.85.104 has gone back on the supplementals correction. site:domain.com search is showing all the supplementals again.

Even 64.233.87.104 has gone back. It had let in many sandboxed sites, but no more as of now.

If you mean 64.233.187.104 I still see newer sites high in SERPs.

http://64.233.185.104/

Hi Folks

Just wish to post Matt's reply (on his blog - today) to g1smd :

--------------------------
Q: “This datacentre [64.233.185.104...] works differently to all of the others. Noticed just a few hours ago. . . . . Where does that DC fit into the scheme of things? Is it mainly made from newly spidered data?”
A: Sharp eyes, g1smd. That wouldn’t surprise me. As Bigdaddy cools down, that frees us up to do new/other things.
---------------

Very interesting indeed!

And to all cat lovers Google Datacenters Watchers, here is an interesting thing about "Emmy" (Matt's cat - around 2 years old and very dynamic) :-)

--------------------
Q: “Do you take Emmy with you to San Francisco?”
A: Nope, Emmy is a true indoors cat; she doesn’t like to travel.

Why do people read so much into things that simply aren't there? All Matt says is "that wouldn't surprise me". That is not the same as saying, "ah, yes, what we are doing is the following..."

It's this same wishful-thinking inventiveness that has led many to believe that Google are trying to fix the BD problem, when they patently are not.

Both GoogleGuy and Matt use the 2 expressions

- I wouldn't be surprised if

- that wouldn't surprise me

to say:

The matter in question shall take place, though I don't wish to mention exactly when or a specific time for that ;-)

and I can't be held responsible if what said doesn't happen, nor do I have the official clearance from the company to state that as a fact.

I see...I get it. So when Matt says that his cat prefers to stay at home. This is probably code for "we're aware of the crock that BD is, and are working feverishly around the clock to put it right". His supposed purchase of a PSP is also a very positive sign that big things are happening at Google.

Dream on folks...Google don't yet believe there's a problem. Why else would they have continued to roll BD out so aggresively in the face of such protest? Why? Because they aren't even aware of any protest. At best, word may have got around that a few people have been moaning about a slightly oversensitive supplemental threshold.

-----------------------

You're right, here is how your read this... Using your decoder ring (foil hats on please or this won't work)

Emmy = BigDaddy
San Francisco = Google's main office in California
Indoor = "under the hood"
Travel = "function, or work"

So the question is:

Q: Are you working on BigDaddy out of Google's main office?

A: No. BigDaddy is an under the hood operation. In fact, BigDaddy isn't even functioning right now.

Yes, that is how I read things too :)

I wonder if the PR export when it is finally done will correct the situation where Google still cant recognize the homepage as the most important page for the site etc - the homepage cant even rank for a "www.domain.com" phrase search - instead beaten by directories and spam - hmmmmz

If the PR that Big Daddy calculated has already been applied to the serps then it looks like Big Daddy cant figure it out :(

Good evening Folks

These DCs are showing somewhat different serps for my test key phrases than the rest of DCs .

[64.233.171.99...]
[64.233.171.104...]

How about you?

For me, Whatever they had on [64.233.171.104...] and [64.233.185.104...] yesterday and the day before, they have not had running for the last almost half a day now.

Whatever you do, always hit reload a few times. Usually you get different results on the second viewing.

Additionally, try the &filter=0 and &num=100 parameters on the end of the Google search URL, to see what happens then...

Reseller,

As we are one of the sites that has just started to be fixed we are in a position to know which DC's have been "Fixed" (for us) and which have not.

The two quoted above have not and we are still in "Hell" on those two.

Back in full swing on default and most others though.

"Emmy = BigDaddy"

Maybe. But most correctly

Emmy = [72.14.203.104...]

Because Emmy is a nice healthy happy dynamic cat :-)

Hopefully you are doing better on "Emmy" [72.14.203.104...] ;-)

Reseller,

Yes we are doing rather well on that (default for .co.uk) DC.

Most other have now beenupdated with our returning pages but about 20% have not.
