Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
We have proper Titles, meta everything, site maps, etc. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know why this might be happening?
As far as possibly tripping the filters, would having almost identical home and default pages likely get the red flag? It's for "sign-in" purposes, but I imagine we'll be getting rid of it in order to sustain a consistantly high-ranking pr.
If there is different versions of the index on different datacentres. Then will they all eventually be updated with the latest version?
Can someone explain why there would be multiple versions of the index?
Will that change when I get the dmoz description updated?

When the index is replicated on hundreds of thousands of individual servers, there is no way that they could ever be totally synchronised anyway.
Additionally, Google likes to try several things out at a time and gauge the results. So, they nearly always have two versions of their index in play.
Finally, several datacentres are often in use testing things out, sometims on current data and sometimes on older data. That is what appears to be happening over at gfe-eh right now for example.

<Using an online tool>, I find that site ranking No.1 for most of the keywords that we targeted, but on others we are nowhere.
When we check the stats it shows that visitors are coming from googles first search page while when we search it, it doesnt show the same to us.
I think we when the major update will be done, either we will be on top or again go off to no where. Most probably we should be on top as its a pure case of sandbox.
So may be thats the case for you too. Do post the good news soon once the results are more stable for you.

and the answer from Google is :
You shall never know....
