Indexed numbers jump in Google images?

Anyone else notice a huge jump in Google images today? Our indexed results jumped about 8x this afternoon.

Just looked again at the site:example.com and the number was back to what it was earlier today.

I realize you can hit different data centers. I haven't seen 4000+ of our images in the index since 2006 and there was a ton of newer photos in there. Can I assume that the 8x larger result I saw two hours ago is a new crawl that will be rolled out to the other data centers?

It's always risky to assume things like that - you may have seen a temporary or test data set, one that might never be used full time. However, you can certainly hope. It is an encouraging sign.

Very odd what happened just now...

After reading your post, I did the site:example.com search in Images and page 1 reflected 608 images. I noticed a newer image in the result set. Clicking over to page 2, it now said "Results 19 - 36 of about 4,080". A ton of recent photos in the results.

As I paged through subsequent results, the total would change from 608 to 4080 every few pages, as would the amount of recent photos.

Crazy...and fingers crossed.

An update...the weirdness continues with result numbers toggling between 600+ and 4K+ as I page through the results.

I'm also seeing images that were just added a few days ago. Fingers crossed...
