I am seeing some limited chatter within the SEO community about a Google algorithm update happening around July 11 and 12th. The chatter, to be honest, is not that huge but it is 100% more than normal. Plus the automated tracking tools are showing signs of an update as well.

Here is some of the recent chatter in both WebmasterWorld and Black Hat World:

I am definitely noticing some fluctuations out of the ordinary. After a quiet week, it appears that Google is releasing an update.

I'm noticing huge fluctuations, but I don't know if it's because of the work I've been doing to my site or what.

Just as I suspected, a new update from Google here in the USA and apparently elsewhere. Maybe it's Google's Prime Day update to give Amazon even more domain crowding, top spots, etc.?

An update might be rolling out in the US as well.

No changes for me. Probably I've been left out again

I can confirm that on my end yesterday's uptick was the only result of a link posted to reddit. Traffic is back to the same today.

Has anyone seen an increase in there serp rank in the past couple of days? I started ranking for so many words and have seen an increase in traffic by 40% in the past 2 days.

Plus the automated tracking tools are showing signals of an update. Here are some of those charts so you can see yourself:

Are you noticing changes? Again, I am seeing a spike in chatter within the SEO community from July 11th through late Sunday night. Maybe the chatter will spike up more within the community after SEOs begin checking their analytics.

Google has not yet confirmed or announced a Google search update.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld and Black Hat World.

Update: Here is the only comment from Google on this thus far. :(
