    Hmm the only improvement I have is to do with bird lice!

    I've not changed anything recently and the results are all over the place. Bizarre.

    I just learned about this URL http://www3.google.com/ie which makes it much easier to spot your rank, especially if you visit the page you want to check on so it shows up in the results as a visited link.

    That's a great URL Elisabeth. I was able to spot that one-page site I was having problems getting ranked decently in Inktomi. It's coming up between the 10th and 27th result on key terms in Google but when I go to the page my Google Toolbar says "Current Page is not ranked by Google". Could that be because the page is only about 6 weeks old?

    I think what's happening is that the toolbar is using info from the existing index, while www3. google shows the new index which will be phased in over the next few days. Listings will jump back and forth a bit as search results shift between the old and new indexes, but after it settles down you should see updated info on the toolbar.

    Hahah.. I've been having a run-in with a website about a group of local politicians and Google now ranks MY site at number one, ahead of THEIR site at number two.

    Interesting update. Did notice that whatever I do for one of my sites (and I have moved up again), Elisabeth is always ahead of me. Is there some algorithimic detail I have missed that states Mark's site must always be at least one place lower than Elisabeth's regardless of on or offsite factors. Oh well, always next month....or maybe the month after...or the month after that....

    Lol!!! When Google use to like me I always noticed the same thing. Elisabeth was always one above me for cetain keywords. Now that Google HATES me everyone and their brother are about 3 million ahead of me.

    Lol to Pigeon food!

    In case someone doesn't know the background for the "pigeon food" comment, Google posted this on April 1.

    Mark and Gameboy, I had the EXACT same problem with one of my pages and every good search phrase for the page.

    I solved the problem by re-working the page enough to drop it to the second or third page of most relevant search phrases.

    I NEVER see Elisabeth now.

    Eeeeks Cedric!!! :eek: Hmmm, maybe I'll have ya rework my pages though. I'd be happy just to see them in the top 1 million!

    The bad thing is that I can't even change my pages because I have good listings in other engines. Maybe I should try a new pages for Google. Naw, that won't work google hate me and I hate them right back, lol. Da dirty #$^#$*^%. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon12.gif>

    Hi
    Well what a nice update. Google picked up my new description with no problems at all.

    Still kept my no.1 spot for "Private Hire" and no. 2 for "Glasgow Taxi".

    ALso noticed that Google now has a very good site description now. I am a lot happier with it.

    Next thing on my list is to get a good ranking for "Glasgow Airport". Thats going to be fun

    regards John

    Somebody has to ask this question at some point here, may as well be me;

    Does anybody know WHEN Google will start feeding to AOL?

    Don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but it seems with this update that Google is displaying the meta description for more pages instead of the snippet approach. If this is true, we'll all have to pay closer attention to the meta description vis a vis Google.

    Re AOL/Google: Who knows?

    Also, a new site I went live with about 10 days ago got in with a PR5. What I did was link to it from the home page of another site of mine with a distinct IP that has a PR6. I didn't place a link back. Hope this wont trigger any Google alarms. I don't think it should.

    Yes - I've gotten several new pages in this index that are displaying meta description and title tags.
