Yesterday I asked should Google pause algorithm updates based on some folks in the SEO community thinking Google should. I posted a poll and within 24 hours it now has over 1,100 results.

Like I said yesterday Google's search results are always updating by itself, i.e. new content gets added, new links, new signals, etc. But should Google push out more significant updates that impact a large set of search results?

John responded saying what is an update:

The truth is, the responses, not just the votes, but the actual replies are interesting to read in this Twitter thread.

Personally, I think we should keep things as normal as possible.
