I begin to see pages coming back from nowhere into page 1. Only few data-
centres are affected and everything is sporadic and patchy. Sometimes I
aim at particular datacentres and sometimes I get assigned ones which are
up-to-date. I have absolutely no idea how this will end up, but I try to
avoid taking a look. Lifting my hopes up and then down to the ground is a

Have you tried any of these tools where you can identify your rank for a
given SERP across various datacentres? Maybe you can script requests?
Vis-a-vis exploitation of bandwidth using scripts (much like HotLinking),
disappeared today. It was ripping off some other service to provide
PageRank prediction to potentially vast lists of input pages. The site is
sorely missed although it had some nasty pop-ups (which could be blocked).
