Is There a Google Update on the Cards?

Is There a Google Update on the Cards?

With webmasters from across the world reporting fluctuations in their Google rankings and search terms, it seems that there is yet another Google algorithm change under way – though nothing has been announced officially as of yet. The Google Webmaster Help forums have been inundated with discussions and this is common after an update. There is much speculation over whether the changes are due to a Panda, Penguin or manual update that could affect linking structures, nut one thing is for sure – something is definitely happening.

Webmasters are Reporting Changes but Google Have Confirmed Nothing

In response to questioning about the changes and fluctuations, a Google spokesperson said: ‘We have nothing to announce at this time. We make over 500 changes to our algorithms a year, so there will always be fluctuations in our rankings in addition to normal crawling and indexing.’ While most of these changes are quite minor and have little, if any, effect on good quality websites, several Google updates can cause huge changes as we have reported previously. In March, Matt Cutts announced that there would be a ‘large’ Penguin update in 2013 – google-algorithman update that is aimed at penalising websites with an overbearing amount of outbound links – so could this be it? That said, Panda updates are also rolled out pretty regularly, which impact websites that are low value to users, copy content from other sites and basically sites that just aren’t very useful. So could these changes be a sign of yet another Panda refresh? Google updates can have potentially huge effects on websites – but these are generally sites that don’t adhere to Google’s guidelines and don’t contain good quality content, relevant links and other techniques that are beneficial for internet marketing and visibility. As for this latest Google update, we’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds – and we’ll keep you updated with the latest!
