Google announced speed update rolling out
It is finally here, Google has started rolling out the mobile speed update. They say only the slowest mobile websites will see hits from this update at first.
There has been another blip, however, this time the tools picked it up too. The webmasters have been mildly more stressed than usual, so we expect another not too noticeable update took place.
A minor blip
There has been come chatter in the webmaster community, however, not too much. Tools haven’t picked up anything meaningful. There probably was an update, albeit not too aggressive.
Big jumps in SERPs
Webmasters have picked up on quite big fluctuations, and this time, so have the tools. The SERPs are all over the place.
Small yet noticed
There has been more chatter than usual both among webmasters and black hat crowd. The tools, however, haven’t picked on this trend.
Google Core Update
Another core update occurred, as confirmed by Google. This was a further continuation of March 7th update and as such included additional refining of their algorithm. Consequently, plenty of big-name websites and authority domains got a considerable boost in SERPs.
The SERP fluctuation tools haven’t noticed anything significant, but there was a huge murmur in the webmaster community.
Mobile First Indexing
The mobile first indexing has kicked off. This update will progress very slowly and gradually, but it has started, and is definitely something to look out for.
There was a rumor about an update among the webmasters, but no confirmation came from Google. The SERP tracking tools didn’t notice big fluctuations, either.
Google Core Update
Although the effects weren’t visible until 8th and 9th, Google actually confirmed that the update happened on the 7th. According to the search engine, its purpose wasn’t to punish bad websites but to reward the good ones, by pushing them up in rankings. Google officials also stated that there is nothing that website owners can do about this update.
