A thread at the WebmasterWorld is reporting Google search update for the month of March 2009.

Here is what jcmiras, a member of the community is reporting:

“Assuming you searched for "word1+word2+word3" (without quotes), usually, we thought that all of the pages that appear in the SERP should contain all of the keywords. However, there are pages in the result which contain only "word1" and "word2" but "word3" is not there, instead, it is on one of the pages that that particular page in the SERP is linking to.”

Here are some other responses:

“I am getting a major difference in results shown between .com dc's and .co.uk dc's. Is any one in th UK getting this? Which algo is right?” – eljacko

“Google has been doing this for quite a while, but at a very low degree. In recent weeks we've had a number of questions about it here on the forum, so I can only conclude that Google must be giving backlink keywords more weight than they used to.” -tedster

“Not sure what you mean by "right", eljacko. Each set of results is "right" for their intended audience.” – tedster

“Getting a few reports of root pages disappearing from index. May be nothing, but I thought some folk here might be interested in keeping an eye on this.” -RedCardinal

Recently we had also reported Google Image Search Update for the month of February.
