In searching for the always dubious supplimentals I noticed that the majority of the ones that show up for our site appear to be pages that have a cache date between 11/1/2006 and about 12/20/2006.

However these pages have definately been spidered since that date and were performing very well for us since the end of the year. It wasn't until yesterday when traffic began falling off approximately 50-75% we began investigating and found these old results showing up.

Anyone else seeing this type of rollback through the datacenters?

All the spammy technorati crud that's appeared over the last couple weeks is still there. It seems like something is going on but I don't see anything like a rollback to Fall SERPS...yet.

Could explain why results returned for my main keyword went from 26 million to 57 million this week!

Yes, I have clear evidence that pages that had a cache date of as early as Feb 07 have now been rolled back to Dec 06? Isn't it funny that G loves to save so much old data and then serve it?

We are seeing some PR fluctuations as well. May be some of the dc's are down and its pulling older data. Who knows, trying to watch the everflux daily will drive you crazy.

yipee ...

site:www.mysite.com : 90'000
site:www.mysite.com inurl:www.mysite.com : 12'000
site:www.mysite.com somekeyword : 700'000

Whoever is able to read and understand that queries will agree - there IS something broken here...
