I just don't understand data centers

We've been #1 for our money 3 word term for about 2 years.

Now yesterday (and still today), we don't show up in the top 100.

But I check other datacenters, and we're still number one on all of them except this one: [64.233.183.99...] - I'm assuming this is the main one now?

Should I panic? Why would we disappear totally on that datacenter, and is that going to be the one that "sticks" now?

Please educate me on datacenters. I see some say they are worthless to look at, but my #1 position sure looks good on the ones that aren't the "real" Google right this second.

If someone in another part of the country looked up my money term - what would show up?

Any help would be gold to me. Thanks

Ok - I just figured out how to "ping". And this is "my" Google : [216.239.37.99...]

Now we do show up on the one posted above. Is [216.239.37.99...] the default Google now for everyone?

Google.co.uk (which is what google.com redirects to for me) is resolving as 216.239.59.104.

We are ok on that one. Is everyone's different? Please educate a dork (me).

SoleDrag,

Everything dealing with data centers and ip addresses is smoke and mirrors.

The entire system is completely dynamic from both a conceptual and operational stand point.

Not everybody sees the same thing.

The ShowIP extension for Mozilla, Seamonkey and Firefox will show you the IP that you are using as you are using it.

Google has at least 44 banks of servers online now, and the results are slightly different on many of them. On several they are very different. Traditionally, several are used for engineers to tinker with occasionally.

I'm assuming if it's on "my" Google though, it's gone past the tinker stage?

Assume nothing, although unlikely, results can escape from tests.

When the indexes are being updated (which is most of the time these days) the results you see may be partial.

There is no system wide coherency (logical, orderly and consistent relation of parts) based upon what I've seen.

Such is the complexity of large distributed ever changing systems.
