Google: We're Always Updating & Improving Our Search Algorithms

Google Algorithm 640

As you know, we cover more Google updates, both confirmed and unconfirmed than anyone else. In fact, I get beat up when I covered unconfirmed updates, people think I get paid or something to make things up. But Google doesn't confirm many of their updates for many reasons.

In a Google Hangout this morning on Google+, Google's John Mueller said at the 25:38 mark that Google is always "improving the search results and the search algorithm" and that " because you have not seen an announcement that nothing is happening."

The question posed was:

There are no confirmed big algorithm updates since January. We saw a mobile update in May, and that's it; 2016's been a quiet year. Is it calm before storm, or Google changed some policy? Meaning big algorithm updates; everyone is talking about big SERP fluctuations.

John Mueller's answer was:

We make changes all the time. So it is not the case that the engineers are taking a break for the year. They are always working on improving the search results and the search algorithm. That is not something where I’d say just because you have not seen an announcement that nothing is happening. There are always changes happening.
