Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
With reference to:
188.8.131.52 Copra Variant
184.108.40.206 Original Turd
220.127.116.11 Turd Variant
I get the same results on the first three.
Different on Turd variant
Do you think that Copra will propagate to all Google datacenters?

Results that've been haywire for weeks are showing good on some DCs (the ones listed in msg #101). Proper meta tags showing, pages coming out of supplemental, and pages cached this week.
I'm happy :)
<added> oh, and all pages in the index apart from those added this week </added>
Also there are even more supplementals of pages than before. Makes me wonder whether it's even worth the bother of wearing a white hat and working hard (ie being selective and acquiring 'quality' links etc etc instead of just getting links from all and sundry, sitewides, etc which works on Yahoo and MSN) and compromising serps on other search engines if the end result isn't going to get you anywhere. Once again, I feel that Google is a pile of turds.

Updating. It seems that the folks at Googleplex either are tweaking or have pushed more data to the following DCs which I have posted previously today.
However, within the sector I watch (related to online advertising and marketing) search quality still better than the rest of DCs, IMO.
Something for sure happening on those DCs ;-)

The answer is "sometimes"
I just did a check and this group:
yielded identical results with my key phrase (two words) coming in at 98th
18.104.22.168 - 115
22.214.171.124 - 99
126.96.36.199 - 115
188.8.131.52 - 99
184.108.40.206 - 115
Since we can't count on all the IPs of a particular C block giving identical results, it means they must be sampled individually. We can't just grab 1 IP as a sample and go on that as being representative.
Further, I have to ask, can anyone here state that it is known, as an absolute fact, that each of these IPs goes directly to a specific, individual server? If not (and I think I have seen this suggested elsewhere, earlier in this thread) perhaps each IP is simply a doorway to a server/router whatchamacallit that re-routes the query to whichever server is least busy at that moment.
If we cannot establish some kind of fixed datapoint, I don't believe that we can draw any conclusions and expect them to be valid.
I have noticed something and wonder if some of the experts can shed some light on my situation.
It seems that one of my domains is making its way back in to better rankings. Its a 301'd site and flip flops every time they have a data refresh.
I have another site that does the same, but that one is not showing better rankings. That site has a 301 as well, but it also has 2 domains that are 301'd to the www primary domain.
It gets really frustrating for me because when the index for my sector looks right (not dominated by huge directories, news sites and spammers) that domain cleans up.
But when its not doing well and those sites are there, its dropped out of the index completely.
I have no duped content, and I don't spam. Both doamins are aged (5 years or more) and they have always done well in the SERPS. I can understand being bounced, but it is consistent and only happens when they do a data refresh, and it makes me specualte that I must be doing something wrong.
I have checked for bad links, cleaned up (over a year) the way link exchanges are handled. Updated content, added hundreds of unique pages with original content. Researched competitors etc..
I have put hundreds of hours in to this and I can not for the life of me figure out why Google has such drastic data refreshes regarding my sector. I also am stumped, why some keywords that are quite competitive have kept me in the top positions during every single update over the past year on these domains,but the others that are aged just as much, and equally as relevant for the keyword i have targeted stay in a state of drastic constant everflux.
I have been out of the loop for the past 2 months doing other things, but if anyone has some suggestions as to what I can look in to that is a little beyond the norm, please hook me up.

Are 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 provinding a hint of things to come?
I think the results a la 22.214.171.124 will prevail...
Is Google preparing some nice fireworks for Independence?
Are starting to look intresting and a fix for a certain issue for one of my sites are on those DC.
In my niche those have certain sites missing which should be there and always were there. The algo sitting on them seems to reward purchased links from many pages of the same non relevant site. The top 10 are OK ish but from 11 - 20 is all directories and scraper (so called review) sites. Just plain Adsense and affiliate garbage.
They also look like variants of Turd which are holding on by a thread.
The DCs that are in the majority now (examples:126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52) reward multiple links from one non relevant site less and seem, in my niche to have all of the market leader sites listed in the top 20. Much less garbage and affiliate traps.
Well I dont think they are anywhere near complete.
But those DC show a fix for one of my sites for a certain issue (although looking at allintitles and some other searches those DC look a bit out of line)
Of course the fix may travel to other DCs (hopefully) while the algo may not.
PS I'm sure that we can all find examples of poor results in SERPs from both sets of DCs. That doesn't alter my report of what I'm seeing in my niche.
