Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
With reference to:
18.104.22.168 Copra Variant
22.214.171.124 Original Turd
126.96.36.199 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?

It's wierd... Copra is everywhere and yet hardly ever used!
its because Google has disabled several features that launched with the BigDaddy update (canonical fixes, new caching proxy, site: feature, www vs. non www, etc), if not the entire infrastructure itself. check your logs. if your logs (visitors, traffic, sessions, etc) are emulating that of the days right before February 14, 2006. chances are, you are a victim of Google's recent index deprecation. think of the canonical issues that were addresed with the BG update. are you still seeing these in your own KW serps? think of how Google uses its new caching proxy. start playing devils advocate. start constrast/comparing pre & post BigDaddy and measure it against your own site(s).
There is strong evidence that although Turd and son of Turd are very much the minority that this is not the case for the UK. Half of the DCs that have been seen serving .co.uk are Turd (or son of Turd) and half are Copra. Therefore in the UK we have a much higher chance of seeing Turd than the rest of the World.
The "market share" of each DC (and therefore algo/variant) could be determined though an update to <DC Checker Tool> but that's a lot of work and is it worth it even to the most ardent DC watcher? If not how accurate is DC Watching...I mean it's kinda fun to see you're number 1 in good results across 50% of tracked DCs but disappointed that's not reality in live results.

At may 16 traffic also went up with the same two sites and that lasted for two days. It wasn't this extreme though. Happened to more people then. Might be a glitch.
However this result set is NOT pre BD like a I thought, as there are many new players on the top 3 pages for the kw's I monitor.
My hunch is an entirely new update, but unlike the last month's worth of stuff, this hit quick and updated on 90% of the dc's <used by an online tool> within 4 - 6 hours. thus an update and not G testing results or tweaking anything.
For sites like min that were hit with a cannonical issue back at BD, this is a welcomed event!
