Google Update Reports Again: September 12th

google updating logoI've received a few emails, a bunch of tweets, plus I noticed new comments on our older posts and some updates in the WebmasterWorld thread that signifies a possible Google update rolling out this month.

The chatter is there, so I have to report it to you.

I am not sure exactly what is going on. We saw what appeared to be a Google search update on August 21st (about 400 comments on that post) and another update on September 4th (about 600 comments on that post) and now I am seeing new chatter about an update today, this morning.

I waiting a bit to see if the monitoring tools show anything and most of them don't. Check Mozcast,, SERP Metrics and Algoroo. Only Moz and Algoroo are updated today and Mozcast doesn't show that high of a "temperature" reading but Algoroo does.

It is unusual to see updates in the cycle of an update, then two weeks later another update and then a week later an other update. But that is what I am seeing.

Maybe Google is working on something, I am not sure.

Here are two new posts from WebmasterWorld as of this morning:

All the signs point to Panda rolling update starting today in the UK. Certainly in a couple of verticals that I watch closely. I expect to see some activity on here over the coming days...

Didn't notice anything since the 4th but something is definitely going down today (UK).

Have you noticed a change in your Google rankings? Should I try to reach out to Google again?
