Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
In other BD indexes (like [22.214.171.124...] 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'll join you - but seriously we're seeing huge volatility - results being indexed, then not, cached pages in , cached pages out the next minute
-btw- I'd like to join you on the optimisitc side - but am still "holding my horses".
The sorts of fluctuations are from 1 site 190,000 indexed, then into supps, then out.
Another site that was hit with a robots.txt 180 day suppression [ we were hacked ] and then had 301 redirects from old to new, followed by gone supplemental [ bar home page ] - is showing life - but again flying around like a YoYo.
...but at least there's life.
How long does Google expect this extreme volatility to continue across the DC's?
- we're into the results again and out, supps on , supps off , 100k pages then 20k, then back again.
Position No 90 then not [ we should be no 1 ]
Unique text recognised then not
It's like an embryo taking shape - I'm just waiting for the regular heartbeat which I hear is a couple of weeks away.
Matt [ Cutts ] - If you're out there i can sense some life!
We just went to about 230 pages that are now out of supplemental and for the first time in a long time I see fresh tags! Most of the pages out of supplemental hell have fresh tags of yesterday.
I haven't checked all the datacenters but where I saw this was on 126.96.36.199 which happened to be my default google at the time.
This morning we had about 90 pages out of supplemental (but no fresh tags).
Now that BigDaddy has rolled out and all seem relatively quite on the DCs, I guess we just have to wait and see what kind of surprises the friends at the plex will deploy on the new infrastructure :-)
Matt told us in advance to expect PR/Backlinks update. He mentioned that improvements in canonical and supplementals issues are to be expected down the road. However, no mention was made of a possible algo update!
Sit back , relax and fetch your Cappuccino. The coming days and weeks would be for sure busy times for Google Datacenters Watchers :-)
Wish you all a great day.
He said it on his blog, my friend. In addition to his recommendation to: Kiss the person standing next to you. :-)

Adam, it must be a joke/setup. I’m all for easter eggs, but not for hidden text. :)
Harith, I can’t promise what we’ll do in the future, but things like a PR update seem doable after Bigdaddy is done. And all of the things you mentioned are things that I would like us to tackle down the road.

Good morning Matt
I see BigDaddy roll out very fast and there are only few non-BigDaddy DCs left . What should we expect to see after BigDaddy is deployed on all the DCs?
- PR/Back link update?
- Algos update?
- attempt to resolving canonical issues?
- attempt to resolving supplemental issues?
I wish you a great day and a successful week.
This is the worst Google Update ever. Jagger, Allegra or all the others during the last few years have been nothing to what is happening since MONTHS. In fact - I do not know anybody that has profited from this mess. Except some spammers.
Not one single BigDaddy DC is holding a correct amount of data for the sites I do know. And the bots are loading data like nuts.
BigDaddy is definitely the wrong name for that - sorry, but I would call it:
or my personal favourite:
"It mean that big daddy will also update site page rank and all inbound and outbound links?"
It means after BigDaddy (new infrastructure) is rolled out, we might expect an update of PageRank values as well as update of Backlinks/inbound links (links from sites outside of your site) reported by Google link: command .

Its all good. My family arrives tomorrow and I can use the time to run some errands, clean, take a nap .... :)
looking at the newer cache pages I see html code showing on several cache pages on several different domains, also the keyword highlighting is highlighting the wrong words, and also snippets of words.
example: highlight shown by [ ]
We have several [keyword] products availa[ble. Ca]ll if you have any questions.
notice for keyword, it is highlighting "ble. Ca"
is anyone else seeing this?
Just wish to post Matt's reply (on his blog - today) to g1smd :
Q: “This datacentre [188.8.131.52...] 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.
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.
>>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..."<<
Both GoogleGuy and Matt use the 2 expressions
- I wouldn't be surprised if
- that wouldn't surprise me
The matter in question shall take place, though I don't wish to mention exactly when or a specific time for that ;-)
