Bobby commented on Google Testing People Also Ask On Right Side Bar

I like it. Much better than blank white space doing nothing. Do something to get traffic to more than the top 5 results.

Mits commented on Google Says An Indexing System Failure Caused The Search Results Glitch

Yup, We still are out ....ranking at Page 1 for many Keywords , now pushed to page 7 - 8 and not yet recovered. If that was glitch and has been fixed then our rankings should have been restored by now. So its not even close to be normal as they painting a rosy picture now. Site : https://www.24reel.com

Life's pretty short man. You sure you haven't got better things to do? You're either from a weak economy or you're job is to gaslight attention away from the real Bill. Accounts like this should be blocked in my opinion. Trying to mock someone else is not within the spirit of comments.

LOL that makes no sense at all. Sounds like a simple AB test. Nice try. 10 points for effort.

They are changing and trying new things because of the election, and somewhere they did a mistake and many other things where affected.

Alex commented on Google Says An Indexing System Failure Caused The Search Results Glitch

Is it just me or it looks like another bug? Google displays some keywords under the title tags. At least one of the keywords is the name of a brand that ranks at the P4 for the query. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ca39703e0c9555221f6c9244b77aaa0902ea2f611bfc8b7f1ca6e8b74a24593f.png

Cleofe Betancourt commented on Google Asking Searchers How Fast A Site Loads

Curious how, or if, the ISP will factor into whatever ranking tweak Google may be considering here.

The Truth is Out There commented on Yesterday's Massive Google Update Was Glitch & Bug - Search Results Back To Normal

thats interesting to know. a business associate as a site, he said he ranked on 1st page 1st position for 100's of keywords from 2013 to 2018, then dropped to page 7 - 10 during the medic update. he has never recovered even with the work he has put into his company site. but on Monday during the "glitch" he was on 1st page 1st position for all his keywords again during the few hours the glitch was active. then when the glitch was "fixed" he was back down to page 7+ he is scratching his head what to do, as he was on 1st position for years then plummeted (he had done nothing to his site to plummet in rankings overnight) so when he saw he was back in 1st position he was ecstatic, then furious after the hours had passed. he is puzzled as what he needs to do. so it is interesting that during the Google glitch he actually retained all of his 1st positions for all keywords. be nice to know your thoughts on his situation Bill?

Bill Lambert commented on Yesterday's Massive Google Update Was Glitch & Bug - Search Results Back To Normal

It was a huge test. We're trying to nail down traffic - inbound organic and referral traffic as a core ranking signal. The problem is or was is they needed to isolate traffic only for a short amount of time. So what you saw on Monday was all of the ranking signals turned off except for inbound traffic. Did you notice a lot of directory sites ranking all over the place? Our advice is get as much referral traffic as you can. Also, most of us our now working from home now so it's very difficult to send out information now. We're down to about 10 Bill's now. They cleaned house. We were successful in pushing for more transparency. They now announce broad core updates so in some way we had something to do with that.

I'm stupid, sorry commented on Google Says An Indexing System Failure Caused The Search Results Glitch

Here are my unworthy (mostly BS) two cents. I believe it was a glitch in the filtering system that Google engages somewhere in between indexing and the actual serving - or a layer of a firewall that is between the main index and the serving machines. Many people would have noticed that sites that were demoted, or domains that are new, or not yet ranked, suddenly started getting a small burst of traffic within this window. Once the filtering system was patched up, the index was rebuilt (for extra redundancy) and then launched out in the open. The good news is that whoever is enjoying Google's love will continue to enjoy it, and the ones that are kicked out of the den, shall remain homeless for quite sometime.

Google will be sacred to release new updates now. Let's see.

The real Bill Lambert doesn't need to state that he is the real Bill Lambert, we just know its him. You're not him, Bill has never been verbose.

My new theory: It wasn't a glitch, but rather a fail roll-out of the next core update. Pretty sure the next core update is coming very very soon, this month

Another site ranked quite high and that's also back to the normal. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/af47e99659b8f2e80a407961a284ed91efe646b87f9f61ac86a54c30d3b21e07.png In my opinion it's not only a glitch, Google's people might be testing something new, but due to massive mess they have reverted it back

Gary's been reading some Shakespeare. If that's the "real" Bill, I believe him. It's not likely a glitch. Google glitches? Please. Gary explains the truth. They got confused. That's also why half of us bounce around from page 1 to page 10 by the way. They don't know what they're doing.

My positions dropped heavily, and traffic dropped by 50%. Today everything is back to normal. Are you sure your keyword tracking software is accurate?

Looks like everything went back to normal today, yes? For my websites at least, I hope for you too.
