I am seeing some chatter, nothing too insane, around a Google search algorithm update around September 19th or so. There is 100% some chatter in the SEO communities and some of the automated tracking tools are showing fluctuations as well. I don't think this is too big or maybe something is brewing?The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread had some chatter spike up around September 18th, mostly around the new batch of mobile first indexing changes. But some are also noticing ranking changes and Google said it would not be related to the mobile-first indexing shift.Here are some of the comments:High SERPs Volatility again today. UK.Its not only UK, big shifts almost everywhere besides US.Semrush updated for the US and it's 6.5.

There is new chatter and signals that there may be a Google search algorithm update starting around Wednesday, August 22nd and continuing throughout today. The chatter is not as significant within the SEO community as with the Google Medic Update but many of the tools are showing signs of an Google update too.It is not clear if this is a tweak or change to the August 1st update we named the Medic update or if this is something brand new and unrelated to core search. Google has not yet commented on it and I am not sure if they would comment. I know they were asked by some SEOs already.Here is some of the chatter in the ongoing WebmasterWorld thread starting last night through this morning (there as very limited chatter on the 22nd):Big ole drop today. Could just be because of the niche I'm in but worthy of note.Next big hit. This took away another 30%, so we are down from google organics traffic by 70%. Anyone seeing a shake up?I am working on 4 websites and all four websites direct … [Read more...] about Google Search Algorithm Update Starting On August 22
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?
There are some early signs of a Google search algorithm update over the weekend, around Saturday and Sunday. The chatter is still very quiet but it was the weekend and that might kick up over the next day or so. Plus, pretty much all the tools are on fire, showing huge volatility around July 9th.Here are some of the tools showing the changes:Accuranker: RankRanger: SEMRush: AdvancedWebRankings: Algoroo: Mozcast: Here is some of the chatter at WebmasterWorld:Was there another update?Our website traffic drops at night times (11pm - 4am) on under 5% in last 14 days.

The chatter and discussions around a Google search algorithm update is pretty strong this morning in the ongoing WebmasterWorld forums. It is very early on the chatter side, as it seems the ranking fluctuations have just started early this morning or late last night. I suspect we will see even more chatter over the weekend.It may have been from the tremor we saw earlier this week or not. I will reach out to Google to see if something is up with this one, but I doubt they will reply with anything more than their normal statement about always making updates...Here are some comments from webmasters and SEOs: But today, my "human" traffic is up by a solid 30% from North America and Europe.I'm seeing an improvement today as well. Unfortunately, traffic is still down 20-25% from what it was before the big Google update in May, but it's at least better than it was all summer, and it's been slowing improving all week.Further losses in traffic yesterday, now about -75%, and this morning is … [Read more...] about Google Search Algorithm Update Today
