On Friday afternoon, March 1st, maybe going through Saturday, March 2nd, there may have been yet another Google search ranking algorithm update. We had one on February 27th and February 22nd and now another unconfirmed one on March 2nd. They seem like tremors, maybe tweaks to previous updates. We have both chatter and trackers showing the updates.To me it seems like tweaks and updates to previous updates from earlier in the week or past couple of weeks. It is hard to say for sure, Google has not confirmed any algorithm updates, I've asked. Here is what the ongoing WebmasterWorld thread has been saying:biggest hit last night into the day. Refs from google are down by 99%. Seeing it across several domains. And again serps are full of shops that i would trust a penny. If it is this that google tries to compete against amazon, google is lost Weird situation since last update, rankings have improved but traffic from Google has drastically gone down.Pretty hard changes today...

What is going on? Again, three times in about a week, we are seeing increase chatter and the tools are lighting up around a Google search ranking algorithm update. Yesterday morning the chatter once again spiked up and also many of the tools are showing huge fluctuations in the Google rankings.Update note on the name: On Friday, Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld named this update "Update Maverick" he said "Update Maverick (in honor of yesterdays Top Gun trailer release). Because this update looks a bit stealthy and precise. However, all the major algo tools are reporting an update has occurred." Personally, I am not a huge fan of naming an update for a movie, would have preferred something around the 50th anniversary of the moon landing but hey - Google had their opportunity to name it and they didn't get back to me after numerous attempts. Here is some of the new chatter in WebmasterWorld:Massive movements for me. All my keywords have dropped again sad I can't believe this Same … [Read more...] about Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again: Update Maverick
Starting maybe late Friday and into Saturday there were signals of a possible Google search algorithm update. The chatter is a bit limited, more than the normal chatter, but the tracking tools mostly saw signs of an update. Now, it didn't seem to be mobile specific more than desktop specific - so it is hard to say what happened here. Maybe Google rolled out an update late Friday that impacted a smaller set of web sites in the index?Here are some comments from the ongoing WebmasterWorld thread starting on Saturday:after 3 or 4 days improvement and steady conversions today things seems to have dropped off a cliff again. SERPs are all different to what they have been been. Anyone else seeing similar - im wondering if there has been an update of any kind of it is just same old AI experimenting with results again.Today I noticed more keywords and now they are in Italian language (they are relevant, but in Italian!). Is someone facing with the same things? I saw that there was a spike on … [Read more...] about Google Search Algorithm Update Saturday July 21st?
I am seeing both chatter and tracking tools reporting a possible Google search ranking algorithm update that touched down over the weekend, around April 26th. There is chatter the online forums and the tracking tools are mostly showing changes here as well.It is super hard to track these with the indexing issues, but those seem to be mostly resolved now, although, who knows what else will crop up around Google search bugs. The last time we reported on an update was on April 8th but that may have been a false alarm.This update seemed to start late Friday throughout the weekend, which is not too uncommon for how Google rolls out updates. Here is some of the chatter from WebmasterWorld:Looks like an update is going on since yesterday (April 27th), at least in Google Europe.After the march 13th update , we were slowly reclaiming spots everyday until yesterday. It seems the algo has developed a dual personality. Seeing huge SERPs changes for us yesterday like other on here too. Automotive … [Read more...] about Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Around April 26th?
Over the past couple of days there has been limited chatter around ranking fluctuations and changes to the Google search ranking algorithm. I am honestly not seeing a huge spike in chatter but the tracking tools are almost all lighting up over the past day or two. So here is what I see around the rumors of a Google search algorithm update recently.Let me first start off by saying that the indexing bug from yesterday probably did not impact the tracking tools much because this only seemed to have impacted new URLs, and new URLs probably wouldn't impact those tools. Maybe?Anyway, here is some of the chatter at WebmasterWorld:Semrush is Bleeding today after much quietness.Anyone seeing anything?Seeing an incredible traffic increase on both of my websites. I was doing a lot of things last months, so I just want to know if someone else seeing some changes? Is it update for all of us or just for my websites after implementing changes? Will be appreciate.Seems like there was a big algo … [Read more...] about Was There A Google Search Algorithm Update Around May 22nd?
