Stop looking at [64.233.187.104...] aka [gfe-jc.google.com...] when you should be looking at [gfe-eh.google.com...] aka [72.14.207.104...] instead...

On the latter DC there is a big cleanup of older Supplemental Results in progress.

Wish the friends at the plex better luck next time :-)

That seems to be a bit of a recurring theme around these parts lately. :(

On a lighter note, I'm happy with the current SERPs that we have been seeing since the 17th. Whatever it was that they changed, I'm seeing 5-10 times more traffic on some sites.

On these dc's my main site that I manage is now down to the index page and one supplemental listing. This was the last page to go supplemental. So maybe google has finally deleted all those pages that went 404 a year ago. I have seen this same result on all dc's I have checked.
Still, it is just a 32 page site. The only weird thing is my index page keeps climbing thru the serps doing better weekly.

Since coming out of the sandbox about 4 months ago, my site has been bouncing around between #200 and #101. Today, I found I ranked #13 at these datacenters : 66.102.7.147 and 66.102.7.104.

Are these datancenters active? Do you think this is an abnormal fluctuation or dare I hope this bodes well for the future of my site?

In fact I asked GoogleGuy about "the end of the summer". He said the end of the third quarter of the year , if I recall correctly. I.e the end of September not the end of August ;-)

Supplemental results have been updated across many datacentres yesterday.

Other people report changes in listed backlinks recently too.

I still think things will be brewing and mixing for a few weeks before a proper rollout of whatever is about to happen occurs.

Bet will be this week-end, sunday the 27th.
People from google mantion the summer in the sence that there is not so much people using google. To me sounds like holiday, not "real" summer end.

OK. For me there was a period of 'new' serps for about a week up to to about last weekend. After that all dc's reverted to what looked like the previous serps (as they had been for a few months).

Just now things have started moving again. I'm not posting dc's because recent experience tells me that they mean nothing.

But the important thing is that we are on the move once more...

Reseller,
can you see serp's from 72.14.207.104 spreading on 216.239.57.104 and 66.102.7.147 blocks? This has never happened before.

Sorry, friend.

I don't see it spreading according to my search keyphrases and the sector I watch.

Alex70,

For the search terms I track, those DCs are unchanged. Best of luck to you, though. I'm thinking perhaps a PR update this weekend and maybe a big shift in serps on Sept 22-27.

In the UK the Summer ended about 3 weeks ago. It's been raining cats and dogs ever since (woof ... get down Shep).

Alex70

I did see some DC changes yesterday in my sector (Photographic), but all seems to have calmed down again now. From memory of these tweaks in the past, it's nothing unusual to watch some mad flip-flopping for a few days and then a week or two of gradual implementation.

I think that people have been so fed up with Google of late, that they get excited at the prospect of an update. I've learnt, by bitter experience, to wait it out ... get out of the house, away from my screen and not get too obsessed about it. Beach Barbeque planned this weekend, so see you guys again on Tuesday ...

All the Best

Col :-)

Google cleaned out a load of one year old supplemental results (results for pages that redirect, are long ago 404, and some that represent old duplicate content) on gfe-eh about a week ago, then spread that to many other DCs just a few days ago. They then reverted that a day or so later, so that they reappeared in the results. You might just have seen that in action.

Well Hallelujah! Google, for the first time in a long time, has my main site (that I manage) fully indexed correctly. The long missing 10 pages are back. The long gone 404's are finally really gone.
Alas, all but my index page is supplemental so I don't know if it will do us any good. What was it? Did dropping my sitemap and then reintroducing it two weeks later do the trick? Or is this part of their clean up? Or did Google just finally READ my sitemap.
I don't know. As I have said...it's just a 32 page site. It does read 1-32 of 69 pages, so Google still has a log of every page that has ever been on this site.
By the way...I am seeing this on my google.com which currently is 216.239.51.104 . Used to be 72. something...don't remember.

I see lousy results on 72.14.207.104. My listings are shafted on it, but good on nearly every other DC

The cleanup of older supplemental results (for pages which have been redirected or 404'd a long time ago), and the creation of newer supplemental results for pages only just recently edited or deleted (which appear when you search for that older content) has spread to most other DCs just a day or two ago.

"I see lousy results on 72.14.207.104. My listings are shafted on it, but good on nearly every other DC "

I just ran 3 top 10 (norm index) results from 3 market segments and all the results are relative (#1 as same, a #2 was 4 and #2 stayed the same)

All seems fine....

Sometimes while I search in Google, the results maybe be various if I click the icon "Search" again and again. It seemed that Google datecenter is undergoing some changes. But in my opinion, the data is changing everyday, but the big one is seldome. So most of time, the result will be in the same level.

"lousy" is not even half of my thinking for "72.14.207.104" but who am I to judge :)

Please don't talk like that about The Mother of The New Infrastructure 72.14.207.104 (:(

lets wait and see how it looks like at the end of September. Hopefully much much better than what you see now.

Hi all. I hadn't been watching DCs last few weeks and today saw couple of my sites coming out of sandbox and more than usual flux in 64.233.167.104 and 64.233.183.104. Are we talking about these DCs yet or did I find something new?

Here in the UK things appear to be settling down at last.

My site only emerged from the Sandbox in the last week or so and this update has moved the site to #5 for the main keyword in my industry.

I'm now seeing consistent results at 72.14.207.104, gfe-eh.google.com and at google.co.uk ...

Ho, ho, ho.
