however it seems as if not all the cats have been updated so far as some of the sites i got listed on DMOZ havn't appeared yet.
anyone got any idea how long it takes for Google to update the directory?
i've just realised what is happening - the SERP's show description/category entries for an updated google web directory using the latest DMOZ dump.
however the dump has not as yet been used for the Google directory itself. if you click on a category link in a SERP for a site that has just been picked up for directory inclusion the directory cat does not yet contain its entry.
hope that made sense!

I guess I did sneak that reply in on you
The results will seem in flux (not the everflux we've been referring to here with the fresh bot) for a few days. Hope that everyone here does well. (The results Dennis was seeing sound good.)

while using www2 and www3 to check out what the new index might look like is common knowledge in SEO, allowing us to see changes filtering into SERPs during the update, you can't use this method to check the new incoming directory as it uses a subdomain.
however, the SERPs reporting the newly-directoried(!?) sites on www2 would seem to me to indicate that google does have a copy of the new directory running on some computer somewhere!
wonder how you get to it?

This month's Google Dance has begun; you can track its march across the data
centers in the righthand sidebar of dance.efactory.de.

It's only showing a fraction of our inbound links, but we're currently sitting at #11 for one of our primary keywords, #7 for our secondary keyword, and #2 for another one. I hope it stays

It's still early to see exactly what's going on with this update, but there's a lot there. We'll check it all out in another day or two.

I'm just surprised that even with a PR5, we are so high with such a high cost keyword
I assume you mean that if a keyword is expensive, then the term itself should be more competitive.
Remember, PR is only a part of the ranking. I have PR3 pages that rank #1-3 with PR7 pages down below it. Title, page content, keyword spread/density, and (though many disagree) LR (Local Rank) are just a few to name. There are 100 or so factors involved in ranking.

My next goal is to optimize another page within the site. I'm trying to figure out how some sites end up with two rankings per site.
Obviously, I'm much happier this month than last when our PR went grey and we dropped to 53. I still can't figure out why our PR went grey.

I have no idea why google is not showing them in their index.... do you use other domain names?

I'm currently showing an inbound of 24 links via google. It should be more on the order of 40. It's funny because up until the last update, we showed some other links. These links happen to be some new ones added prior to the last update.
I'm not complaining about where we sit for our primary and secondary keywords, but I'm baffled as to what happened last month. It's kind of funny, my site was down for about 2 hours just before the dance started. I was on the phone screaming at my host to get it back up, and sure enough it came up, and google hit it about 45 mins later.
One thing I did this past month was resubmit my site to google. I hope this isn't a move up as a new site and then get bumped next month.
