There have been some complaints among webmasters about rankings, but they haven’t been too big, barely enough to consider if something’s going on. Tools haven’t noticed anything. This might be connected to Google implementing new version of Google bot though, hence the mention.
Webmasters and automated tools have both noticed something happening with rankings over the weekend. Now, considering the previous period, it’s possible that it isn’t an algo update at all, but Google fixing their indexing issues. In any case, the fluctuations in SERPs have been significant enough for tools to light up, and for big enough number of webmasters to notice changes to their websites.
Google bug or algo update
Last Thursday, Google developed a bug and started deindexing pages for no apparent reason. On April 7th, all the tools that monitor SERPs have gone haywire. Chances are, this behavior is just a consequence of this bug.
Webmasters say yea, tools say nay
Fluctuations have been rumored among the webmasters. Plenty have seen their traffic raising or dropping from March 29th, all through the weekend and the beginning of the week. The automated tools however haven’t noticed even a blip.
A relatively small blip
There have been new tremors. Most tools haven’t noticed huge fluctuations, however, webmasters are picking up fluctuations. It could be yet another tweak of the core algo update, or it could be something new. Mostly European webmasters have noticed changes.
Another update, or a tweak to the previous core update?
There has been another tremor in the SEPRS on the March 20th – 22nd. Webmasters are reporting their results waving quite a bit. Tools however haven’t noticed huge fluctuations. Could be a new update, or it could be just a tweak to the core update.
Broad core update – Florida 2
There has been a broad core update that started on March 12th, and sees continued effects on March 13th. This update has been confirmed by Google. Plenty of webmasters that have previously lost positions see their SERPs getting back to state before the updates, or simply noticing much better conversions. Monitoring tools have also noticed huge fluctuations.
Another minor one
There has been more instability, through March 5th and 6th. Both tools and webmasters have noticed fluctuations in serps.
Another uncomfirmed update
There has been another update during March 1st and 2nd. Both webmasters and tools have noticed huge volatility. It resembles tweaks of the recent updates, but nothing has been confirmed.
One more update, again
It seems that another update has befallen us. Webmasters have spotted higher than usual fluctuations in traffic, as well as tracking tools, which show high volatility.
