    Google Backlink Update???


    Hey Everyone,

    As many have been asking, what is going on with Google and their backlink update?

    I am reading conflicting stories concerning the Backlink Update many of us were expecting.

    Any ideas if a backlink update is happening or do we have to wait another 6 weeks or so?

    Thanks All!

    HEY 'berberber'

    I know its all about SERPS....and as I said I am waiting not on PR but on some important link partners...and I notice Google has not updated their system yet as I just checked some client websites.

    Any idea when?

    Next month?

    6 weeks??

    Here are the recorded dates of the updates since November.

    Google BL/PR Update Dates

    ...32 days(as of may 25)
    April 23
    (15 days)
    April 07
    (18 Days)
    March 20
    (38 days) - G seems to have missed one here
    February 11
    (16 days)
    January 26
    (15 days)
    January 11
    (18 days)
    December 24
    (18 days)
    December 6
    (16 days)
    November 20

    it just looks like Google missed the last one (due around May 8th)

    So, actually, if Google gets back into step (like the Feb/Mar update missed) the next update would be due later this week!

    ;)

    Thanks for the info MCDAR!!!

    very helpfull..

    this may sound like a dumb question but how do u check those backlink updates?

    I usually just check manually to see when Google has counted a particular backlink i created?

    Thanks again for the info

    The dates above are the dates when the first reports hit the forums that G is updating Backlinks and PR. (and the reports are validated, of course)

    Yes, these are checked manually by searching link:www.domain.com in Google or seeing the PR changes in Googles toolbar.

    I wonder if the delay has to do with a lot of the Datacenters being down?

    I believe the Datacenters being down is a "symptom" of Google making changes and that Google making changes is why the last update was skipped.

    It s a simple tool, but its useful:

    type your URL in, and if backlinks are different on the different data centers, you have a google dance (now PR/BL update)

    What I'm about to iterate may be a complete farce but I always find it good to suggest things that are heard throughout the grapevine.

    Googleguy (who knows.. don't ask me if he's true or not) said that Google has been toying with the idea of having the visible PR only updated once each quarter. If this is true, then this means that the next visible PR update will be in June/July.

    After that, we'll only see the next visible update in October/Novemeber.

    Are you cringing beside me or away from me?
