Google's Update Rolls On...

Just posted by GG (an anonymous Google Rep) over at wmw in the standard 30 mile long thread about it....

Here's the advice that I'd give now: take a break from checking ranks for several more days. Bourbon includes something like 3.5 improvements in search quality, and I believe that only a couple are out so far. The 0.5 will go out in a day or so, and the last major change should roll out over the next week or so. Then there will still be some minor changes after that as well. So my "weather report" along the lines of http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000095.html would be a recommendation that rankings may still change somewhat over the next several days.

What can I say, it's all so clear now... this explains almost everything... (I just gotta figure out what that ".5" is...)

 

It explains a lot, considering in the past major updates factored in more quality type elements like pagerank at the end of updates. Given what he said, tt would make sense to see these poorer quality results continue this week, and then an improvement after that.

Give it a week or so

is definitely GG MO. He said the same thing with pre-fetching . Spin control!

He's posting again ...

GG is posting in this thread referring to some new(?) stuff showing on the Datacentres mentioned on this page, and yet another come-on that it ain't over yet.
