Google's Gary Illyes said on Twitter, in response to my reports of the Google Halloween Zombie update that Google does not confirm core ranking algorithm updates and this may have been one of those.

Here is the set of Tweets:

Google Core Ranking Not Confirmed

Note, Gary is at the Google headquarters, I think for the TC summit but also for other things. So he is pretty close to the algorithm push people. Not that it says much.

He is not confirming that there was or was not an update. He is not confirming if there was one, if it was core algorithm related or search quality. He is just saying, that if this was core algorithm, then they would not confirm it.

I know I have emailed Google twice on this and Google has not confirmed anything. So maybe it is core algorithm ranking related or maybe we are all dreaming?
