    Google update/dance/ (or something)!
    Well something is definately going on with Google.

    One of my sites (~700 pages) was fully indexed in google.... and this week i realise my google traffic has quadrupled; almost instantly.
    The reason? All the OLD NON-EXISTANT pages that google dropped out of its index over 1 year ago (and have not existed for over a year) are back in the index... and ranking! (and these pages are really old... like from before I moved to php... they're in Perl/CGI!)
    (this explains my jump in sales but fall in conversion rate)

    Anyway, there's about 2k pages that google dropped out of the index... back in there! Lucky I have my mod rewrite sending them to my search results page based on their refering query

    Thanks for the temporary boost Google... but get on with the update... I was happy with my conversion rate and this is making my number crunching/planning useless!

    Update coming.

    Update is imminent, that's for sure. And I for one will embrace it.

    What cache date is showing for the old results Rogi?
    Keep on learning, keep on earning. :fan:

    I just checked out WebmasterWorld, when there is an update you'll know, big threads. There is a thread "Google Datacenters Watch: 2006-01-23" And checking it looks like something is going happen (update) real soon.

    I kinda miss the old days, end of the month, every month, an update. Was very easy to check when an update was starting, just using the Google Dance Tool. When one of the datacenters backlinks changed (people usually used Yahoo backlinks) the dance was on. But this way is good too, can get pages in quicker.

    I have a love-hate relationship with the datacenters listed in the WMW thread.

    My sites are moving and shaking. I'm sure that my surges in earnings are due in part to cycling of information from one datacenter to the next.

    The spammers are also moving and shaking. My sites are kept off the first page SERPs by scraper-spam sites loaded with keywords.

    A few are doing it with my words.

    I can't stand those kinds of poachers, even if they do link to my site as some kind of "payment". I'm thinking a whois is in order to get a list of addresses. I'm gonna have to pull a Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

    a ton of my old pages are showing up suddenly. I kept them updated as they rocked in Yahoo and MSN. Now that site is not doing as well in Yahoo.

    Results have been shifting all week. I've been checking my latest visitors and when I check the search term a visitor found me with my site doesn't show up on the same page.

    I've been seeing a lot of movement over the last week. I'm with TrustNo1, I miss the good old days too. It was always nice to count on something happening every month; now we never know when something drastic is going to happen.
