I agree with steveb "One site has a homepage second, and a minor page first". Even i find the same a subsection page comes before the home page.

AOL UK Results are showing .com results.

Search for something related to the UK and select UK sites only and it delivers worldwide

Either AOl has a problem or more likely Google is delivering Junk results to them

aol.com & comcast.net show the best results I've seen in years. Its something new I've never seen them on any other DC.

72.14.207.104 is showing even better. I think that aol.com & comcast.net are pulling some listings from 72.14.207.104.

On one of my keyfrases I get roughfly the same results on that DC and on AOL and Comcast. The other keyfrase brings completely different results.

Yes, that 72.14.207.104 set has all my canonical problems resolved - I cant see many 302 redirects etc. My sites homepage is first in an allinurl:domain.com search. (Although not when you omit other results)

The only problem is that I have so few pages and they dont rank.

Lets hope it is the beginning of better things.....

At present my default google is 66.249.93.104.

It is showing a page count of 1 - 10 of about 994, up from 507 yesterday. No supplementals either.

Random DCs I checked:

72.14.207.99 - 1 - 10 of about 10,100
72.14.207.104 - 1 - 10 of about 10,100
216.239.63.104 - 1 - 10 of about 9,690

Just noticed something strange. when i do a site:www.mysite.tld on google.co.uk it returns 1 - 10 of about 994. Check the cache and it shows 66.249.93.104. now if i put 66.249.93.104 in the address bar and do the sam search it returns 1 - 10 of about 9,730.

Thats enough for me for today. Too confusing for me. I'll go build some pages :-)

Here is something about current situation which might help explaining what you mentioned.

- behind each datacenter IP, there are several boxes which might containes different data.

- different datacenters get different data at different times.

- ranking of sites on different datacenters might differ.

I hope this helps.

There is something going on, this past week was a roller coaster, top 50 one day, no where to be seen the next, then back to the top 50 for my keywords.

I am seeing my pages being dropped en masse in some data centers (72.14.207.104), while in others (64.233.161.107) my number of indexed pages is starting to look normal for the first time since March and all the supplementals have been dropped. Does anyone know which data centers reflect the newer results that will predominate?

Using the Mcdar tool, im showing 25 of 56 datacenters with new results.

Does this update have a name yet?

I do not see quite that much but I think that the "strange" results are spreading. Anyway I do not think that they are used as default around the world. I do not notice an increase in traffic or sales.

LOL,
I just saw this. My default Google shows no "Cached" or "Similar pages" links. Never saw this, or its the first time I observe it...

64.233.161.107 has the great AOL set from early today. AOL no longer has that set.

Why is everybody in denial about this UPDATE.

This is a major algorithm update, yet people are still in denial, calling this experimental, or temporary results.

Google does not put experimental results on 25 datacenters. This is an update, although it is spreading through Google datacenters like a slow infection.

My sales have already doubled since, this started a few weeks ago, as we are now on Page 1 for 25 datacenters, for our money making keywords.

No body has named this update, however I make a humble submission for the name KHRONOS [greek God of time] (it comes after J, and we have been waiting close to forever for Google to fix alot of problems, which this update has done)

On default google I see some of my websites with a title that was changed at least 2 years ago. On some datacenters titles are correct. I think that we are looking at a very old google indexed data. Does anyone else see that?

How about BIG DADDY since BD never did finalize yet. These are the biggest changes I have ever seen on Google and to tell you the truth, the very best changes.

"Why is everybody in denial about this UPDATE."

Personally, I have noticed what it could be an algo update on 1st May 2006. In fact I posted a hint which generated a "backfire" I hadn't expected ;-)

So I understand very well if the folks are reluctant to mention anything directly or indirectly related to an update.

Here's a new one:

We've currently got the Mediapartners (Adsense) bot crawling our site like the regular crawler...it's just coming and grabbing pages like a madman (well, like a googlebot actually).

I am seeing DMOZ titles for the homepages of two of my sites in the new index (64.233.161.107 for example) but only on some searches. For most regular searches, my normal titles are coming up, but if I search for the DMOZ title, I get it. Site: search returns the DMOZ title, but searches for words in the real title return the real title. Some searches return the DMOZ title as a secondary result for terms appearing on subpages. Very strange.

What I find interesting is when they strip away all the supplementals from my sites on various DCís the sites show a significant rise in the SERPS. From what I can see apparently minor copying and scraping does have an impact on rankings in Google. It seems to me other SEís handle this better than Google.

I donít know if this is so much a update as they are either deciding what to implement, freeing up resources, or beginning to implement what the BD infrastructure was supposed to do in the first place. I guess in the traditional sense though it is an update.

Hmm, the edits made to a page just last night are already indexed and the new words already show in the snippet after less than 21 hours (I was out when it happened).

The cache is still old, and is dated just over a week ago (and I assume will update in the next few hours) -- the snippet and cache are usually out of alignment for a few hours when Google indexes changes to a page.

That is on the "experimental" 72.14.207.99 datacentre and the changes have not appeared on the other "main" datacentres yet. They have a cache date one day later (newer), but still the old content.

A site used to have the same meta description on every page of the 140 pages. The descriptions were all fixed many months ago, and Google re-indexed nearly all of them at that time.

For the last few months, a site:domain.com search showed about 120 of the 140 pages before you hit the "repeat this search with omitted results included" message.

Today, some DCs are only showing "1 to 30 of about 160 pages" and when you click the "repeat this search with omitted results included" message you then see all 160 pages but nearly every snippet is identical, and is the old meta description from last year, and NOT the new description that has been in place for many months. For some of those pages, the cache date has reverted back a few months, but for others that show the old snippet, the cache date is only a few days old.

72.14.207.99 is interesting. To me it shows Google playing catch-up with other search engines in that they are crawling my sites like other SE's have always done. That doesnít mean it might be doing just the opposite for other sectors. Or it may be results before they slap the filters on everything. Who knows with Google.

I remember the Florida update. It hurt us a lot as we went from #1 spot to nowhere. But as you said that only lasted a bit. This new update has lasted so long and we are getting penalized for no reason. Please let it end.
Our site <snip> was ranked #1 with most of our targeted keywords. Now we barely even show up. We are not using any nepharious SEO tricks. What is up?

dropping your URL on very post, can be considered a dirty trick.
