How Does a Google Query Work? How many machines does it hit? How many clusters are there? How many Google DNS servers? How many data centers? I know Google is famously secretive about this information, but I'd love to understand just how the results page gets back to me, with as much detail as possible. Many people take guesses about this, but I'm looking for some real concrete data.

firefoxfilter: When I sign on to some websites (including westlaw and all google derivatives) firefox doesn't follow through.

Someone who I attended Middle School and High School with twenty plus years ago recently Google'd me to apologize for the way he treated me back then. I'm pretty much over all that school age bullying, what's my obligation to my former bully? How should I reply to his email? Or should I just forget it and move on?
I am looking for someone to explain Google's search results. The reseach I have done says you need to have lots of good links coming into your site from other high PR sites. I am wondering why Google does not use website visitors. Ie. If you have 100,000 visitors per week, this must be better than a site with 1000 visitors per week, but has high PR incoming links.

How can I recover my deleted Froogle list? I once had a lengthy (20-30 items?) shopping list on Froogle, here. I pointed people to this list as recently as December and it was full then. It now appears the entire list is gone. The items for myself aren't that important (if I can't remember I want it, maybe I don't really need it), but I used the list to keep track of gift ideas for others, and I'd really like to recover those. I've searched for an older cache on the Wayback Machine, Google, and Yahoo, with no luck. And I can't find any means of contacting Google for help.

Have I been penalized by Google? I used to be #2 for my main keyword in google. However, since mid Jan my site has dropped off of the face of google for all my keywords. I initially thought they dropped me from their index. Looking at google webmaster tools I get crawled almost every day, I have a PR of 5, over 800 backlinks pointing in, and google has over 47,000 pages of my site indexed. I have been given no notice of any penalty. There are a lot of sites reporting the same results in google’s webmaster forum. [more inside]
Did Google Maps yank their "leave a review" feature for businesses? All I see for my area are prepackaged reviews from Citysearch which aren't even specific to my city and aren't very useful. I see no user input links except for "Business Owners: Add/Edit Your Business". I distinctly remember leaving reviews there a couple of years ago.
