Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
does anyone know if 188.8.131.52 is being used as a test server?
I seem to see my site at #9 across ALL datacenters excepts for this one which has me fluctuating between #1 and #4.

"Actually, I'm looking at 184.108.40.206 in the UK and it looks a lot better to me now"
Must agree that that data centre does look good. However, im being served 220.127.116.11 in the midlands currently which is not so good. May i ask what part of the UK you are in to be served by that data centre?
I am just asking for a list of all google dc ip addresses so that I can try to make sense of what is happening.
I've read through a good deal of posts regarding Big Daddy - [gfe-eh.google.com...] aka [18.104.22.168...] stating that the SERP's found there are what will be in Google moving forward(the SERPS look fine in these).
Can anyone shed some light on:
a) Is there a DC that shows the same results as Google.com
b) Are the SERPs in Big Daddy the future SERPs for google.com; and if so, is there an approximate propogation time for Big Daddy SERPs to show on google.com
1. No, there's no one data center that will always show you what you get on google.com. Google uses many ip addresses for ordinary google.com pages - and they can swtich data centers and/or ip addresses on a dime. They do this for load balancing or to test one set of results against others, or just because they can.
2. There's no IP address where you can be sure you are seing a preview.
Google Data Center IP lists [webmasterworld.com]
For at least the past 3 or 4 months gfe-eh has given a rough indication of where we were heading, but about two weeks ago those results migrated to most of the other active datacentres.
>> Is there a DC that shows the same results as Google.com <<
Rather than access by IP address, try using the equivalent gfe-xx name instead.
>> Anyway to determine/verify the IP address of www.google.com as the browser navigates to it? <<
Upgrade your web browser to Mozilla, or Firefox, or Seamonkey, and then get the ShowIP extension from L4X.org too.
This is what I found.
SERPs were fine except for the following DCs:
gfe-bx, bx2, bx3
Are any of these DCs individually significant to determine which way the SERPs are proprogated from one DC to another? Or should I just monitor the DCs to see how the SERPs are changing.
Not sure how I affected the results as I have not changed anything on the site. I do show 4 pages as supplemental results, however...
Results 1 - 3 of about 770 -- with no link to any more results...
Let's hope that Matt gets to see that one for himself.
That's one of those DCs showing recently with "result 4 onwards as Supplemental", or in this case "totally missing".
My guess is that the newer data (seen on all the other DCs) really is missing from those servers.
Seems he has in the past two hours. I see nothing obscure on resellers links.
Besides: I performed that site: command on 22.214.171.124 for example. Weird result: 9 out of almost 900, four of which marked with a "300 Multiple choices" return, because the indexed/requested url was absolute nonsense (incomplete/wrong). My sitemap.xml is absolutely fine, so where the hell has google got this "page" or "link" from?
should I worry? the crawler had been trying to find and index pages like www.mydomain.com/myproductgroup/...gets.html
My first question is always: Have I made a mistake recently? Anything works perfectly fine on my default google-ip and I cannot find any mistake yet, so let me guess: THOSE THREE DOTS, do they have anything to do with some illformed handling of subdomains on the crawler's side? Or is it because I currently abuse Frege's "Begriffsschrift" as a mouse-pad?
...and then shows 100 results on first page (7th onwards Supplemental) and in theory there are 10 pages of results.
Thanks for posting the link to the data centers back on page 4 of this particular topic.
I am now seeing results on google.com that very closely resemble [126.96.36.199...] with the exception of the last three serps on the first page of 10 results. I am sitting at #7 on both pages for 313,000,000 results on 188.8.131.52 and 324,000,000 on what I receive as google.com
See what they have done to my baby DC (:(
More Google Magic [184.108.40.206]
Talking about "tinkering". I just read on Matt's blog the following comment [mattcutts.com] :
You guys need to quick tinkering and fix Google. Iím seeing more and more legit non duplicate pages go supplemental on larger sites. Smaller sites donít stand a chance anymore.
I miss the Google of a few years ago.
Lately, it seems the Google Spere is cracking.
And this is coming from someone who drives around with a Google License plate frame on his car!
Good night and God Bless!
It is now almost totally useless for resolving any canonical or duplicate content issues with your site.
Well done Google!
If this continues, then you can disregard everything I wrote about using various Google searches to resolve Duplicate Content and Supplemental Results in the last two years.... Move along now. Nothing to see. Nothing that makes any sort of sense anyway.
