Many of you are following the most recent Google Update. In the past, at the Indexing Summit at SES NYC 05, Danny Sullivan requested the search engines to give the Webmaster a "Weather Update". By that he meant, he wants the search engines to let us know when an update will take place or if it is taking place. Tim Mayer from Yahoo was the first to provide a weather update based on Danny's request, so that update was named update Tim.

GoogleGuy this morning posted in the Google Update Bourbon Part 3 thread, message # 422, that he will provide his "weather report". In the beginning of his report he said he will ask Brett to set up a thread where he can answer moderated questions from the WebmasterWorld members. Currently he says the following is taking place:

Here's the advice that I'd give now: take a break from checking ranks for several more days. Bourbon includes something like 3.5 improvements in search quality, and I believe that only a couple are out so far. The 0.5 will go out in a day or so, and the last major change should roll out over the next week or so. Then there will still be some minor changes after that as well.
