New Possible Google Algorithm Update Continues May Pattern “Another Day In Hell” – Update Rocks SEO Community

A month of unpredictable Google updates continues with what SEOs believe to be another Algorithm update.

Throughout May 2021, we’ve seen plenty of unconfirmed Google updates take place – many of which speculated as a result of rapid, unexpected shifts in tracking tool data. This month, we saw several possible updates, including those on May 7-9, May 13, May 16, and now, May 22.

The most recent update left a strong impression on SEO and Search Engine Roundtable writer Barry Schwartz. In a blog post, Schwartz wrote that tracking tools were “showing changes in the Google Search results that I have not seen before in a long time.”

He speculates that Google did something to ‘upset’ the tracking tools, and recommends that site owners check their data in case of a significant change.

Users on internet message board Webmaster World have been talking about the most recent update, and some posts indicate that the update has unleashed chaos.

“This is hell,” one user wrote. “ never know what to do anymore, where to look, or what is actually happening.”

“Another day in hell,” a different user added.

One user alleged that his tracking tools indicated a drop in his global site’s numbers from 52.4% to 11.6% in only 11 hours.

With only a week left until May ends, many SEOs are left wondering if Google will squeeze in another update.

The Google Search Ranking Update Spikes Again

06/29/2022

After a few days of cal, more tremors and volatility can be seen, possibly from the unconfirmed Google Search ranking algorithm update we wrote about earlier.

The new update looks like it’s just getting started and some of the tracking tools have already picked up on it.

There were rumours within the SEO community that there may be an update happening. Some said it will happen on June 27t or June 28th, but there’s no official confirmation about that yet. Also, everything looks way calmer today.

We saw large fluctuations around the 19th, 20th, and 23rd, of June. Google’s core update, May 2022, began releasing on May 25 and it was officially proclaimed complete on June 9. But, big fluctuations were noticed before and after the start and end dates.

Unconfirmed Google Search Ranking Update

06/27/2022

A possible Google search ranking algorithm update might be happening as we speak, but everything is still very much on the low.

In case you missed it (which we highly doubt), Google’s May 2022 core update began rolling out on May 25, 2022 and was officially pronounced complete on June 9th, but we saw significant tremors before and after those dates. Were the tremors related to that update or the current one – only Google can tell. The SEO community started seeing some volatility and fluctuations on June 19 and is left confused.

It’s not unusual for a core update to be complete and for tweaks to happen to the algorithm, too. Some pages at the end of a line might work their way up to the top. Read what the community has to say here.

Barry Schwartz wrote about this first and is still keeping an eye out.

Some sites seem to have recovered from the May 2022 core update, while others have not, and for the most part, sites are reporting big swings in Google search results.

The biggest spike seems to have happened on June 23, but everything looks normal for now. As you can see from the chart below, just because it’s normal now, doesn’t mean it will stay that way for long, even after the core update is fully rolled out.
