    Actually I take that last comment back. They're not terrible, just a bit different. I can't quite get my head around it.

    As far as I can see the results seem to be a bit more stable now (compared with before!). So, can anyone spot any patterns in the new results or fashion an idea as to what's going on or what the change is?

    It's probably way too early to even be thinking about figuring out such things. The results will probably be completely different when I wake up tomorrow morning!

    What is really throwing me for a loop is the fact that its not a case of there being two different indexes -- every datacenter is a little bit different.

    I didn't even notice that. The majority show me down a bit; only one seems to have the same listing as before this change.

    Hopefully they'll fiddle around with it more.

    My weekend traffic is always slightly lower... By about 5-10%

    Well, I woke up this morning to find that I've gone from page 4 in the SERPs to ranking #3 from the top Not complaining... Still, with the pace of change, I could be non existent in the next 10 minutes. Who knows?

    After reading more of the annoying chaos at WebmasterWorld, GoogleGuy may be hinting that the update is about over. I hope not... there is still garbage results for certain SERPs.

    Well, no disrespect to everyone else, but I hope they don't change too much. Ranking #3 my traffic has rocketed, along with my adsense earnings! I'm quite excited as it's well exceeded my expectations. My CTR is just fantastic. Can't believe it.

    There hasn't been any changes for a while now (since the start of today for my search terms). So maybe it is coming to an end. Though I though GoogleGuy said that he though there might be something introduced tomorrow?

    It's just a waiting game. Hope everyone comes out of it OK in the end! Particularly Chris as he relies on it so much... Fingers crossed.

    I went from the 7th place to the 2nd so I'm not complaining, but I also don't have anything to lose or gain really. It's just for testing purposes ...

    Backlinks seem to be updated on -va and -zu. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to change search listings. Hopefully this will change before everything settles down. :\

    inka, that's true. Though my listings look exactly the same this morning. GoogleGuy just said that they have some "minor" data to introduce maybe today. But apart from that, I think it's pretty close to being over.

    Though, some of the listing just don't seem right still.
