Google is on a roll! Yesterday, SEOs were alerted to yet another confirmed algorithm update from Google. This is one of many in a string of both confirmed and unconfirmed updates from Google this month, including the June 2021 Core Update and the Page Experience Update.

Not much is known about this new update yet, except for the fact that it has been labelled the “Spam Update” by Google.

The news was first announced in a Tweet published yesterday by the Google SearchLiason account.

Google remains tight-lipped when it comes to the details surrounding the Spam Update, and hasn’t revealed what type of spam this algorithm update is targeting. In lieu of an explanation, Google simply linked to its general spam prevention notices.

Google did, however, add that a “second one will follow next week,” and it would keep us updated on Twitter.

The rollout of this first update was incredibly quick, starting and finishing on the same day – June 23. This was confirmed by Google’s Public Search Liason, Danny Sullivan.

 The good news is that it doesn’t appear that this update had any major widespread impact on rankings, so SEOs frantically checking their sites’ rankings can breathe a sigh of relief. For now, that is. In the meantime, we’ll be waiting for Google’s next spam update and will keep you posted when an announcement is made.
