Courtney stopped by to let me know about what appears to be a real PageRank update that is in progress if there can ever be a real update again.
Many of the blogs highlighted in the update just a couple of days ago seem to have reverted to their previous position.
Now for anyone who might be thinking otherwise, there are still some obvious penalties in place for a few sites, but it is less obvious for the more vocal networks.
Some sites and networks still have a penalty, as do some sites.
Some of those penalties seem to be a carryover from the first Google slap 2 weeks ago, and some seem to be much newer.
The changes could easily be written off as changes in total linkage compared to the remainder of the blogosphere, but it seems like Google have given a penalty to those they could get away with.

The “Googleflux” for many is in total confusion. That’s PR1 PR2 PR3 & PR4 across multiple data centers.
With my own PageRank, things are just as confusing, and I could end up with PR3 PR4 or PR5.
Do I still feel that I have been defamed?
Well, it seems I do have some kind of search penalty now because a syndicated excerpt of an article now outranks me unless you use quotes for a search.
I will be updating the list with more sites, and for any changes in data centers over the next few hours.
