I’ve been working on a post about the Google Oct. 2005 “Jagger”
update but unable to reach either WebmasterWorld or Threadwatch to link to some
posts about it at both places. At first, I thought maybe it was a
connection problem with the hotel I’m staying at. Then I saw Jim Boykin
that the sites are down for him, too. So it wasn’t just me — and not
just you, if you’re having problems. Meanwhile, I went over to check
our own SEW Forums
to see if there was any news on what happened to WMW and Threadwatch,
only to find our own forums were down! I think that was very brief,
because a few minutes later they came back up.
I know we’ve been having some massive spidering attacks this week,
so perhaps the same has hit the other two sites. Want to discuss? See
and wmw down? and SEW
database problems too. Sounds like perhaps today
is a good day for that search marketing day off that I wished for
earlier this year. Back on the Jagger update when the other two sites
are up. In the meantime, you can check out our Oct.
2005 Google Update thread and the More
info on updates post from Google’s Matt Cutts.
