    basic google questions

    Hi all, I have a few basic questions on Google:

    1. The boards seem to state that Google no longer has a regular monthly reindexing schedule, yet their site claims they do. Who is correct?

    2. How often does Google add new directory entries from DMOZ and when was the last update?

    3. Does Google frown upon a site being accessible by 3 tld's (.com, .org, .net) with all being pointed to .com via 301 redirect and mod_rewrite?

    AFAIK - and others will butt in if I'm wrong:

    1. We are

    2. Not very often. (guess: every two months or so)

    I think - but I'm not sure - that the last data refresh was less than two weeks ago. The G-directory's PageRank update history is kept here:
    ...but that's not the same of course. Maybe someone else here can recall, or a search for Google Directory DMOZ Update on this forum (see search box above right) might shed some light

    3. Nope.

    If you do that correctly, with a proper "301", then you'll be fine. Of course it helps if most of your backlinks point to just one of them... I don't expect any penalties for using mod_rewrite (yet!).
