    www2, www3, Googledance not working?


    I tried inputing www2/www3.google.com today and just got redirected to the www.google.com. Then I tried the Googledance tool and got only one column of results...?

    Has Google decided not to let people see results from their test servers?

    ...or are they done testing? Who knows? (That's not a rhetorical question)

    Yes I noticed the same too. This falls in line with them becoming much more secretive after their IPO. They will not let anybody have access to anything that can be used to predict Google. I have a feeling that this is not the last of this type of behavior.

    When will Pagerank on the toolbar be gone? Its only a matter of time, unfortunately.

    But, as brandall pointed out in another thread (ggl opt forum):

    ...you can still get to www2 via the IP address without being redirected. Just go to 216.239.57.104... Probably the same for www3.

    Maybe they decided to get rid of some of the google dance tools (though the ones relying on IP should continue working).

    You have to be invited to join, like for the real googledances.

    Google is becoming completely invitation-only lastly.
