Google dance is used to describe the Google search engine index update actually. Generally, the index update occures once per month. And it is an outdated slang term in search engine optimization or SEO to describe the period when Google rebuild its rankings. Well, the Google dance will  happen anywhere up to 36 times per year. Taking the 2003 year for an example, Google updated its index on a weekly basis. There will be great movement in search engines during the index update.

Google dance is of great importance to those who are in the search engine optimization or SEO industry. During the google dance, webpages of some websites will got temporarily dropped, and sometimes it will last a day or more. So, you will find that SEO workers pay more attention to the search engine updates and the Google dance. Your rank may be re-added, and they are better placed than before. Or it may be dropped lower which will make people mad actually.

How to check whether the Google dance is happening or not? The easiest way is to go to www.google.com to do a search. There would be the words "Results 1 - 10 of about 626,000. Search took 0.48 seconds" at the blue bar at the top of the page. Then what should you do is to check the same search engine on www2.google.com and www3.google.com to see if there are different number of total pages for the same search. The Google dance is happening if you see the different number of total pages for the same search. Well, how do we know when the Google dance is over? You should check all the variations above. www2 is really www-sj, and www3 is www-va. The Google dance is over if the numbers and order of results on all 10 www's are the same.

Frankly, the reason for the Google dance is Google's way of using the domain name system or the DNS. So, there is no control within the system since Google's index is inverse and complicated actually. So, many webmasters are wrong since they think that Google is able to control if a server with the new index or a server with an old index responds to a search query during the Google dance.

How often does the Google dance happen? The major Google index update occured on average 36 days or 10 times per year. Like other search engines, Google depends on their consumers knowing that they deliver authoritative reliable results 24 hours of the day, seven days a week. They can't shut down for maintenance and they can't afford to go offline for even one minute. That is why we got the dance. The Google dance is no more since August 2003. And now Google updates weekly with most movement occuring on Monday.
