In my niche is still a mess.
site in 3rd position has ONE page with that keyword but the whole site is on a complete different topic.

It is a relief to see rankings back and Matt call it "an issue" but I'm still worried this was a hint of what we can expect from an upcoming update.

b2net, I don't consider those rankings indicative of anything coming in the future. Some data went into the index without all of our quality signals incorporated, and it should be mostly back to normal and continuing to get back to normal over the course of the day.

twice in one day Matt?

lol, play it cool, man.
Only a few people saw all the goodness in that "bug" (is that what you're officially calling it?)...
Let alone be able to dissect it and use it to any advantage.

And I'm certainly not letting any REALLY good info out. (im selfish like that) :P

No worries.

During few months (since I started to monitor it) search using two specific keywords always returned very informative articles from Wikipedia and SearchEngineWatch.
Now, it returns post from a forum, with non-assigned toolbar rank. And other results too, very deep article pages, blogs mostly. No any specific site dedicated to the search subject.

If it is "an issue" which will be quickly(?) fixed (in a GFS/BigTable) we would like to know details... it deserves an article in Wikipedia at least.

Matt, thanks for the update. A little slow to see some of the fluff panned out of searches, and some seem still way behind, but overall getting better throughout the day.
