Google Search May Be Updating...

Jun 19, 2013 • 9:03 am | comments (98) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google PageRank & Algorithm Updates
 

Google UpdateThere is a lot of new chatter in the WebmasterWorld forums, along with random threads at other forums including Google Webmaster Help about Google's search results shifting around and some webmasters claiming huge declines in referrals from Google starting around 8pm EDT last night.

Some are hoping it was just an Analytics issue but looking at the reports throughout the day and this morning, it seems like it wasn't.

One webmaster said:

Another 50% drop from what has left till yesterday. That is now 25% left from pre-panda/penguin. Serps itself look quiet spammy like normal.

Another said:

Seeing 10-15% drop here. Pretty much all of our Google traffic is gone. Direct only now.

We know we are waiting for Google to slowly push out a softer Panda update but would softer result in more complaints or less complaints?

Last time we reported a shift without Google confirmation was on June 5th and there are still many sites who have seen huge drops on that date, despite Google not confirming anything.

Mozcast just updated and it is not showing major changes.

Did you notice major changes late last night into this morning?

Thanks for temporarily blinding me with that image - looks great. As for the update, I checked Google.co.uk and spam sites are still ranking well so the update doesn't seem to be targeting spam, but then again, this might be an update that reduces a different type of spam. It's likely the kind of update that motivates you to buy Adwords ads. Didn't the Adwords team just come out with a new feature? Great way to encourage more people to try it.

We are down about 0.46% over here, which is just noise and nothing unusual. Will be keeping an eye out though.

Thanks for looking into this Barry. At 10pm PSt last night i refreshed my GA dashboard and found the chart back to normal. Not sure why GA delayed real numbers for more than 10 hours to many users around the world.

Not seeing anything, but then again I haven't really been monitoring as of late. In all honesty, I am only having trouble ranking one of my sites and it's my best one and for this reason it's pissing me off. My other sites are holding steady as usual. I haven't checked analytics for months. I did coincidentally check out Google.co.uk last night just to see what the SERPs look like and I see the same churn and burn tactics being used over and over and over... I'm honestly thinking of trying it because it seems so much easier than actually doing things the legit way. I actually thought much more of Google, but after seeing the spam, I am just amazed.

For a company that seems to have many so called geniuses working there, Google surely is making too many changes to search and EFFING with peoples businesses, why so much fluctuation? They made us wait 10 months for the Penguin refresh now they are running these updates like weekly, "NEWS Alert" small business owners bail out now! This is the Apocalypse of the internet as we know it!

Scroogled

06/19/2013 02:41 pm

Yeah heres a good one for you! I am in the SF Bay Area and have a friend that works at a start up company that is very successful. They have yet to go public however they allowed Google to buy many shares at an affordable price. The company also ranked #1 for a term that gets over 90K exact matches. The last Penguin update dropped this company to #3, I guess they hoped Google would keep them at top LOL. Also why the hell would Google get priority over shares first in company that is private, guess Google meant a lot for this business; then dropped them in rankings after they had their shares - Google is more crooked then the American Gov.! but we already knew this anyways, no surprise...

ethalon

06/19/2013 03:07 pm

So you take circumstantial evidence that Google isn't helping to rank a company it has financial dealings with at the number one spot... ...and use that to draw the conclusion that, "Google meant a lot for this business; then dropped them in rankings after they had their shares - Google is more crooked then the American Gov.! but we already knew this anyways, no surprise..." Wow. I would be willing to bet that if that company kept a number one ranking that you would be hear regaling us with your tale of Google corruption by bumping a company they have stake in to the top of the rankings and keeping them there.

ethalon

06/19/2013 03:09 pm

"They made us wait 10 months for the Penguin refresh now they are running these updates like weekly," They are always running refreshes and updates and tests, regardless of the status of any individual change. It's not like they were doing no updating to their algorithms inside that ten month period and now they are acting differently.

I saw a huge drop in Google Analytics yesterday that had me very concerned, but today the traffic seems to be fixed and analytics is working correctly. I'm not showing any change from where I'm at.

ethalon

06/19/2013 03:32 pm

This may be a really dumb question, but: Does your analytics still show the big dip in traffic that you experienced or has that data also been 'filled in'/corrected? I ask because I don't see any significant drop and I was curious if you had to see it before whatever 'fix' there seems to have been. Maybe if we get enough input on this question we can determine whether it was delayed reporting or a real loss in traffic for a short period of time.

Huge drop in google my nichr has same site ranking first 4 places and my site with all great links and citations is nowhere to be found i have about 10 links to my site webmaster tool shows 8 and weird part is i creates that keyword in my washroom random no meaning keyword and got the .com for it but im not even on 1st page even though there is nothing on the net with that keyword.

Kevin

06/19/2013 03:59 pm

Pretty sure this was an Analytics bug. Normally when Analytics lags, it just lags an hour or two behind. But yesterday, it *looked* like it was up to date at the hourly level, but only a portion of visits from each hour were reflected. I nearly had a heart attack when I checked my stats last night, and saw traffic was 1/3 of what it should have been at that point in the day. Later on, it refreshed and everything looked normal.

Antony

06/19/2013 04:00 pm

we cannot expect anything good from google. It only sending traffic to hotlinked images (directly, cheaters!). Better to act now as this search engine not exists and close indexing for it via robots.txt. Peoples need to focus on bing/yahoo/social networks/big traffic website. Google is just greedy now and it on the way to self-destruction. let help them, robots.txt : useragent: googlebot, disavow: / All matt cutt promises is LIE, also it not possibly to recover old sites, disavow tool not work. i think now only dark blackhatters able to get traffic in this search engine, because it easy for them change domains, cloak, etc. White hat way not work.

It was delayed reporting. Around 11:00 yesterday my traffic suddenly cut in half. It really freaked me out, especially since this lasted throughout the rest of the day. This morning it is showing "corrected" traffic for those hours yesterday and everything appears to be normal now.

06/19/2013 06:25 pm

Barry, Very interesting things are going on in vertical that I cover. Now Google is showing a big featured box with the answer to the question. Before webmd was ranking number one however now Google gives you the answer for the query. Try it yourself and I have been in this niche for almost 10 years and I have never seen this --> if you search "hemorrhoids signs and symptoms" then Google doesn't give blue links anymore just gives you the answer in a feature box. It does it for following keywords and tons of others: cancer signs and symptoms psoriasis signs and symptoms If you do it for treatment it does the same thing. Is this the future? I mean is Google going to keep every single bit of traffic? What this means for us webmasters? Will we stand up against this or should we accept it and just let it be?

DarkoBoy

06/19/2013 06:44 pm

Barry, I did the search from US IP and on top it shows product images so the first half of the screen is ads and this white box with the answer. Should we webmasters suck it up and accept it or do something about it?

06/19/2013 06:46 pm

I tried it ... they are snippets from authoratitive websites like mayoclinic, and they have a nice link to "read more". This is good for the searcher and good for the sites deemed worthy of the snippet. Why would you want to "stand up against this"? For the searcher it is good.

Rob Jenkins

06/19/2013 06:53 pm

Not sure exactly when it was implemented but I just noticed it in the last couple of days. If you do a search for some local business genre like "new york catering" you will see it is now showing a ton at the top with images.

DarkoBoy

06/19/2013 06:56 pm

But the links below will hardly ever get anything. How can a doctor who specializes in that treatment can get anything? I mean if you have spent 20 years of your life treating patients and run a small site to share your research and insight. Wouldn't you be more of an authority resource for Google to show for the keywords than Mayoclinic article written by MayoClinic staff which they claim to be some experts? I guess we will have to suck it up and say "that its good for the searcher" as we been doing with every other Google update. I will suck it up and just shut up. It's good for the user top spot 4 product image ads and then this feature box and then pile of other links. It's good for the user I wonder whats in it for us webmasters? Just suck it up as usual right James?

DarkoBoy

06/19/2013 06:59 pm

@Ethalon, Will just suck it up, my site was getting only about 100 visitors a month with few patients in the clinic. Now it will be 20 visitors a month. I was not making millions from the search anyways. Google knows whats authority content and whats not. But it will increase their revenue which is GOOD!

@Anti-Seo It was a hobby site of my clinic where I have published peer-reviewed content for past 10 years. It all started with a hobby. I was not touching the 7-8 figures salary but I was getting 100 or so visitors a month some of which turned into patients. But ah well. Google knows it better for worst or good.

It lost the hobby status when you opened your statistics the first time. When the statistics is opened and you do care about it, then you're in business. In web development business. Are you familiar with such business ? Rhetorical question.

I really don't see anything different. The same free blog hosts are still ranking their splogs rather well. Copied content is doing pretty good when hosted on a Google owned property (Splogspot) too. Domain authority is the new king and hard working webmasters are the pawns looking for a way to fix something that only Google can fix (their broken algorithm that encourages content theft and link spam to competition websites).

MikeHalo

06/19/2013 11:31 pm

I know there are a lot of mixed feelings or distrust in anyone that complains. Previously I was somewhat in the same boat. I am one of the people who was quoted above from Webmaster World. Let me tell you that there is collateral damage, and I strongly do consider myself part of this damage. June 5th to be precise. The trend of people who regularly complain about these updates normally run a WordPress style website. Mine is not. I spent around 6 months developing my website before launching it. It's around 15,000 lines of code or so. It's completely custom, valid (HTML5) code. If I check the "recommended" guidelines, there is not a single one that I can say no to. In all honesty, I didn't even check any of these or even bother to read up on "SEO" before I was hit with this penalty. I never built the website for "SEO". But don't take my word on having an "awesome" site, everyone says that right? Well I thought at least my analytic statistics backed that up. My sites bounce rate is below 25%, repeat visitor is very, very high, and our pages per user is verging on 10 or so. We also have thousands of registered users (for free) who most of return daily. There is no UGC indexed by Google, either. There have been 2-3 scrapers that targeted my website, though I blocked them and they are all offline now. To top it off? Zero ads. This was a project I did in my free time. This wasn't a money chasing project. So while this may not effect me in the same way that it effects others, it is still a little mind boggling wondering what triggered the penalty. We lost around 100,000 visitors from Google daily. Our search is mainly our direct and returning visitors. Searches for our site name have increased nearly 10 fold. So people are wondering where our website went... Or that's how I read it. There is collateral damage in these updates.

06/20/2013 12:28 am

That's the beauty of the Internet, ain't it? I agree with your statement. However, I don't want to post my URL for a couple of reasons. I guess you can take it or leave it (my opinion/situation that is). I know that Alexa stats are rubbish, though to use it as a reference point, it was (and still is) a highly ranked Alexa website. It has a somewhat significant profile. I don't wish for it to be the center of attention for these matters. I've previously thought about contacting some people to run some "case studies" but I've since changed my mind. My website has 2 main competitors who are somewhat similar in their functionality and use (though more limited) and they are yet to be hit. These are both also very highly ranked on Alexa, both well below 1,000. Which means I've either: 1. Done something obviously wrong somewhere/missed something. I've had a few of my webmasters/programmer mates go over it with a fine tooth comb. Beyond minor improvements, there's nothing obvious. 2. Maybe there's a dodgy page somewhere I am unaware of -- Google said "A single page can bring down a domain". Possible, though unlikely I believe. 3. I am collateral damage. I am 99% sure that it is content/structure related. I've made some tweaks here and there so we'll see how that goes. Another area that may be my downfall is heavy usage of robots.txt -- I previously blocked quite a lot of the website. I've relaxed these rules a little. But to me, that doesn't make much sense. And lastly, the only other thing I came up with, was a "nofollow" on a couple of internal links. After watching basically every Google webmaster video, Matt Cutts basically says it's a bad idea except in some circumstances. I used it on my login/register page, as well as to an information page that was linked on every page. I have since removed these internal nofollow's.

Do you not realize that internet marketers have fled to sites like Squidoo due to the domain authority of the site? Have you been living under a rock or something?

I saw your last comment: You leave the query out of the reposted one, let me quote that for you: "Google payday loans in the UK and you will see that all the churn and burn sites are hosted on that [blog uk link removed] (at least last time I checked) and on the Tripod site. Many internet marketers have moved to Squidoo because it's easier to rank there. Have you been living under a rock?" You are surprised that churn and burn sites are choosing to host on cheap/free platforms? If you are attempting to play in that pool then you had better get dirty too, otherwise it is a lost cause. Then again, if you are playing in that pool you are probably hoping for affiliate links and offer no real service anyway...I am happy that you aren't contributing to the institutional loan sharking of the poor to make a few bucks. It is a scummy and spammy industry. The fact that you attempt to exemplify your gripes with Google by citing payday loan SERPs and equivocating them to every/any query shows that you are either purposefully ignoring the reality of the situation, or are woefully ignorant and choose to rant and rave instead of learning something. Your 'under a rock' comment is hysterical to all those except the other perpetual Google whiners who choose to throw around insults and blame rather than attempting to understand what is going on in your 'industry'.

I am pretty sure you were talking to me, sometimes Disqus gets the names mixed up until you refresh the screen (I had a whole screen of Tweety Bird avatars the other day). That strategy seems to be useful only in queries where churn and burn is profitable; spammy queries. You shouldn't think that those strategies are applicable for most queries as most of those sites last for a short period of time and then disappear to be replaced.

And you make a perfect jackass out of yourself every chance you get. Happy? You seriously have issues. Now I've gotta go, but you keep trolling and making sure that no one manages to slip a negative comment about Google by you. OK? Both you an ethanol have issues... but that guy doesn't really sound as pathetic. He just doesn't have a site so he can't relate but you... Issues!

I have a site I work with. I am in-house and focus more on our adwords campaign, but that doesn't mean I am not actively using my presented worldview to do my job. Why do you think I don't have a site I work on/with?

this is clear cheat again, few sites get special treatment in google search results. It just showing us again what google is really corrupt. Anti-monopoly laws may be can work here.

Do you really think Google would pay me to counter your know-nothing, reactionary ridiculousness? Ha! That is some grandiose thinking.

Working on someone elses site and having your own are two completely different things. I used to work for companies and I can tell you, when you work for someone else it's different than when you work for yourself. I work and have worked with Adwords and since we're talking PPC, I can tell you that my first PPC campaign was run on overture dot com, but what does PPC have to do with all this?

Some significant changes for 'infographics' keyword. Previous #1 spot dropped to #10. Lots of shifting in between.

Local organic search (for services) is now mostly just all directories, directory after directory after directory. Since people use google as a directory they may want to scale back directory listings to 1 or 2 not 8-9 in many cases? Matt, PLEASE give some people a chance!!
