As we enter into a new datacenter thread, the new(er)Goog-licious results are showing on
These results are also being fed to select partners, such as Comcast, who show Google provided results.

I'd hold-off on buying a bunch of sitewides untill you throughoughly explore your own competitive sector.
Im getting more confident now, as last time Google pulled the plug after 33 datacenters.
Once we see the last 3 groupings switch, I will be more confident to call this an update.
That is the last 3 that I am waiting on also. I usually use the 72.xx DCs as standard if they get changed over to the "new" results then yes I would tend to agree that this is an update also. My confidence is holding up but I have been here before to get my hopes dashed at the last minute.
Those results will never become the norm for the simple reason that because many websites have now only the Dmoz title that in many cases is so stuped that instead of title has the domain
Don't listen to this man, he drinks beer all day long.
I now see the results fixed on 33 DCs as someone mentioned.
The serps have really stayed more or less the same for the last 6-8 months.
Its almost as though Google has tagged the top dozen or so sites with an authority or trust rank that means they are unaffected by the re-shuffles.
In some sectors I think that the "trusted" sites have already been decided and the rest are fighting for scraps. Those sites that have made it into the elite group are not necessarily those with high PR but the one common feature is that they have all been around for a long while and have well established links (both recip and one ways)
Just an observation
I am not seeing any real spike in traffic on any of my sites, even though I am way up.
Are you way up on the default DCs that your potential users are using though?
I'm in the UK and have recently seen spikes in traffic when I've had crap results on my default DC. I assume that this is because some big ISP(s) or geographical area in the UK is being fed by a different default DC with results more to my liking than the one I'm seeing.
Our target search terms are and product is very UK centric so even if we were #1 in Seatle we would get zip traffic from there. That's why DC watching is pretty futile for us Limeys until the DCs that serve us kick in with improved results.
