Update from the future: High volatility was noticed on August 6th, leading the SEO community to think about how the tremors have something to do with the July 2022 Product reviews update. Read more about it here

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.

New Tremors and Volatility On Google!

08/08/2022

Seems like Google is planning on another Search ranking algorithm update, the Search Engine Roundtable reports. Or, as Barry Schwartz suggests – the tremors noticed this Saturday, August 6th, might even be tremors caused by the now finished Product Reviews update from July.

The chatter among the SEO community is pretty loud and the new volatility has been noticed. The drops in Search have been circling around 30% all over the world, and traffic is not much better, according to people on the WebmasterWorld forum.

Glenn Gabe, an SEO expert, shared some interesting graphs on Twitter:

Another Search Ranking Update In The Making?

07/11/2022

A new search ranking update might be in the making. Or maybe it’s the same one from a week ago, we seriously don’t know.

What we do know is that the weekend behind us was unstable and that the update might have caused damage to some websites. Still, Google hasn’t yet confirmed any of the search ranking updates, but the tools speak for themselves. According to them, Google Search results are again experiencing volatility and ranking instability.

The tools are showing spikes for the weekend period (July 9th and 10th), and more chatter can be heard across the SEO community.

It’s a bit calmer today.
