Early last week, I reported around chatter on a possible Google update from the weekend before, maybe starting around the 17th.

Well, that chatter has not slowed down much - in fact, it kind of took an uptick and I am seeing more chatter around Google updates over the past week or so.

Some of the tracking tools have showed a spike in Google fluctuations around the 23rd of September as well.

It seems like Google is possibly testing something or that there is a roll out slowly pushing out. I am unsure if this is an uptick with Panda or something related to another algorithm. Or maybe it is nothing at all. I have not heard from Google about an update - so it is hard to say.

The folks over at WebmasterWorld are trying to give the September fluctuations a name, they think there has been enough changes going on this month that it warrants a name. Here were some of the suggestions, including naming it after Tedster who passed away a couple years ago, others think pocketliner, or Orangutan and others. I like the idea of naming an update after Tedster, although I am sure he would not have thought it to be appropriate (he was very humble).

Have you seen shifts in your Google rankings over the past couple weeks?
