Updates continuing to shake the SERPs
Webmasters are getting vocal again. Plenty of them are seeing big spikes in traffic. Also, the tools are going crazy, with majority of them showing big movements. This is probably the biggest one in the past week or so.
A new update, quite a lot of tremmors
A new unconfirmed update has landed, this time the tremors can be felt on 16th as well. Webmasters are noticing the fluctuations, and so are the automated tools. Google is not commenting on this one.
Another unconfirmed update
Webmasters and tools alike have spotted big fluctuations in results. This one is not confirmed, and it is known that Google has a new bug with sometimes omitting search results altogether, but it seems it is actually a new update.
There are plenty of early signs that a new update has landed. Webmasters are reporting a lot of SERP fluctuations, and the automated tools are lighting up as well. There is no official confirmation on this one.
No more than 2 search results per domain
This update had a 2-day rollout, from June 4th to June 6th. From now on, there will be no more than 2 search results from the same domain in the top search results. Idea behind this is to push smaller domains further up in rankings. It has nothing to do with the core update from the previous day, this is a filter update.
June 2019 Core Update
Google has announced this update a day in advance. This is a broad core algorithm update, but they are not announcing big changes.
Tracking tools lighting up
There is another rumor of a new update. Not too many webmasters are noticing much of a change, but some of the tools are lighting up like crazy. There has been an indexing bug, but it shouldn’t have an effect on them, so, there might have been something rather big done.
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.
