A year and a half ago, Google's Andrey Lipattsev who has not been in the public eye since, listed off Google's top three ranking factors as content, links and RankBrain. It was a fun time for us search reporters, as you can imagine.Well now, Google's John Mueller and Gary Illyes are saying there isn't a top three. John Mueller said on Twitter "IMO there's no "top 3" list." Gary Illyes said on Twitter the top three depend on the query. This was after someone called him out as listing the top three at a recent SEO conference named Brighton SEO - he said he did not do so.Gary said:John Mueller also said that "we use so many factors for ranking, it really depends on a lot of things." Meaning, maybe different ranking signals dynamically become more important based on the type of query being entered into the box. Of course this makes sense for news or trending keywords but it might make sense for other areas as well.So there you have it, there are not top three search ranking factors … [Read more...] about Google: There Is No Top Three Search Ranking Signals
I am seeing some new chatter and most of the tools are backing up the chatter around another Google search ranking algorithm update that started around yesterday, February 27th. We just reported on another unconfirmed update around February 22nd as well. The chatter is pretty limited and fresh but I suspect it will pick up soon in the ongoing WebmasterWorld forums. Here are some of what the SEO community is saying there starting on the 27th:Anyone seen a drop overnight into this morning?I saw some moderate shifting happening last night before going to bed. SEMRush is back in the yellow again too.Seeing some small shifts in this latest update (27th). I’ve got a handful of pages in fragile balance that go up and down depending on what Google have tweaked. LSI/keywords seems to have become less important and authority more important. Not simply link authority to the page, more like total site authority, or perhaps something to do with branded links. This seems to have been a big … [Read more...] about A Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update On February 27th?

Yesterday morning the chatter once again spiked up and also many of the tools are showing huge fluctuations in the Google rankings.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 happening here. If its any similar to June's update, there might be room to recover in a week or so.I didn't recover from the June update. It took away more than half of my traffic. July 13 update took another 10% and today's update is going to take away the rest sadBut like with any update, not everyone is seeing it:I don't see anything major for my niche.I'm not seeing movement on any of the keywords I track manually. But our traffic increase has remained consistent since Monday. In Canada, we're seeing some clients up, and others down. On our end, we're … [Read more...] about Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Bigger Now?
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
