Big Daddy's upgrade was introduced step by step because it was an infrastructural one. This had a big influence on the overall qualitiy of the former SERPs. Only in March 2006 the upgrade was finished. Matt Cutts, then leader of Google's web spam squad, has been informal enough to announce new infrastructural roll-outs since December 2005.
Rather than operating the entire infrastucture immediately, Google tried it on two different server and shared its IP address with the Sony Ericsson comunities. Just as thrilled as SEO professionals were to see how their websites worked in the new datacenters, the whole thing also made a feed-back to Google, where they gathered information from several reviewers who were willing to give their thoughts on the up-dates.
Following this meeting, Cutts and his supporters, humorously called " cutlets ", remained in the Pubcon lunch room, asking further question and jumping over the next meeting. At this point, Cutts heralded the roll-out of the two new datacenters that would use the IP addresses:
and 104, which operates the new facility. A Matt Cutts (in blue) and other Pubcon participants who skiped meetings to hear Cutts' announcement about the new Big Daddy malls. Cutts also asked the group during this casual lunchroom session what these new datacenters should be called.
Historically, many algorithms have been updated with filenames related to the individuals who first notified them. One man called Jeff M. proposed the name "Big Daddy", which was a moniker given to him by his kids. Cutts liked the name and ruled that his new fix would be known as Big Daddy.
Together with the ongoing response from the Sony CEO comunity, the Big Daddy upgrade began with the introduction of more datacenters. On 29 March 2006, all old computer centres were shut down. Well-known for finding ways to encourage people to take actions and use their software to get quicker test stats on how their software is evolving to get instant response.
Google411 was a free telephone book in the past where you could call 411-GOOG (411-4664) on your telephone and ask for a number. The fully automatic system enabled Google to enhance its speech detection technologies, which we now take for granted for smart phones and Google Home.
Google's 3-D SketchUp developed a temporal sub-product named Building Maker. It has been specially developed for Google Maps and Google Earth user to generate 3-D building casts. The Big Daddy Roleout of two server for professional advertisers was no different. For this test, Google developed a special feed-back questionnaire in which professional SEOs sent their feed-back to Google on how the new system works.
By introducing Google's Big Daddy feed-back formula, the professionals at Sony gave their first feed-back on the SERP' qualities. Used as a feed-back and URL removing utility, this was the forerunner of the Google Webmaster tools that ultimately became the Google Search Console. On the basis of this feed-back sheet, Cutts reported that there were minimum discomfort and overall satisfaction among satisfied users.
In fact, there were a few authority oriented professional SEOs - Todd Friesen and Greg Boser - who said (in January 2006 on WebmasterRadio. fm) that they liked the results when Big Daddy came out. Interviewed, they said that the only grievances were mainly due to other problems that had nothing to do with Big Daddy and were incorrectly detected as part of the Big Daddy-Updates.
However, it's seldom that a Google fix doesn't lead to some kind of turmoil. Complete Google Asphyxiation of web-spam? from the registry. Since the Big Daddy upgrade was in full progress, the supplementary index was also added. As the name suggests, the complementary index complements the Google index.
In 2003, when Google introduced the complementary index, it was presented as something that would be beneficial for usability. So if a subscriber was not able to find what he needed in the root index, he could possibly find it in the auxiliary index that had results that were less strained.
This supplementary index, however, showed results after the major index results. Often the user does not even get to the end of the major index results to see the complementary index results. This index was rated negative by an SEO when their websites began to be included in the supplementary index. Principal causes for the inclusion in the supplementary index were often double problems with contents or the presence of doorsway pages.
Even though the word "thin content" was not used at the time, cutts listed categorie pages, blogs, tags as pages that had been notified to him by Big Daddy update affected people. The Big Papas emphasis was on improving the results of searches and the distinction between the primary index and the complementary index was also on improving the results of searching.
Cutts, however, retained its conviction that websites affected by the additional index may not be affected by the Big Daddy release as they are two separate releases. Dates that will permanently alter your brand. In spite of these comments, published by Cutts in early 2006, many discussions on the WebmasterWorld forums in several thread discussions still continued to discuss the complementary index and Big Daddy releases as if they were interchangeable.
Google Sandsbox is an unverified (most likely mythical) filtering used on newer sites that prevents them from getting a good rank, even if they were full of great contents, good hyperlinks and no tech problems. A lot of people thought that this upgrade prevented professional SEOs from just purchasing hyperlinks to get rankings advantages.
Edits specifically cited some of the problems with running Web site rankings that led to websites yielding when the Big Daddy releases were made. A number of professional SEOs thought they were affected by the Big Daddy fix and claimed that their good link was falsely identified as a poor link. On some occasions, professional SEOs thought they were adversely affected by Big Daddy even though they were actually just a new website.
Dance was the word for results that were always changing. In this way, Google updated its website databank and associated rankings information in near real-time, without the need to turn off. Dance " of results was part of the dissemination of information from one computer centre to another.
In these years, Google professionals would review different Google results by directly accessing different IPs. When the Big Daddy update came out, Google Dance no longer did it. There are still sporadic variations in the ranking, but they are no longer due to the progressive dissemination of up-to-date information in several datacenters; they depend more on various elements, such as personalisation, geographical situation, etc.
In December 2005, when Big Daddy promised that it would be introduced from January 2006 to March 2006, it gradually spread from one datacenter to another. The ones who didn't know the Big Daddy release was coming out supposed they saw a Google Dance score. In contrast to the additional results and the sandpit, the Google Dance is not a Big Daddy patch but the other way around.
Big Daddy was wrongly identified as Google Dance distribution. Apart from the misleading statement that the Big Daddy upgrade was just an infrastructural upgrade, Google didn't go much further with the one. The Cutts claim that this infrastucture contributes to improving the results of searches. However, a few things Cutts asked for during the Big Daddy rollout:
Of all the cuttings he got via the Big Daddy fix, he only said that in a few cases the changes were the outcome of the Big Daddy fix. This Big Daddy fix was probably about more than just those inferior sites, but they are the only things cutts or someone from Google has given us about.
No dramatic changes were observed that were narrated by the vast majority ofthe social networking industry and if there was ever an on-line debate about a detrimental effect, mostly than not, it was not at all Big Daddy related. While a Google upgrade, a number of Google search engine blogs will be talking about the upgrade, and some will just give testimonials as facts.
In those days, some folks said that the Big Daddy updates were all about low grade content. There' s still no significant evidence that the Big Daddy upgrade was specifically focused on these areas. Google's only announcement was about the improvement of the results' usability as an infrastructural tool and the improvement of the results.
The other information came in the shape of cuttings inquiries for the testing of the entire social networking comunity. What ever poor link claims were made by advertisers only came from websites affected by the fix. This does not, however, prove that the Big Daddy upgrade was only about poor link content. Any other information source about the Big Daddy releases came from two major sources:
Cutts' own private blogs with his contribution here and here, and Cutts' guests interviews on WebmasterRadio. fm's SEO Rockstars podcast, which was then moderated by Friesen and Boser (and can still be heard here).
