Does Recent Major Google Algorithm Updates Affect Your Site Rankings?
Since last night I started seeing so many changes in ranking for all my sites. Some pages and posts went down from the 1st page to the 2nd or even 3rd just in minutes and a few got up to the 1st page. I keep seeing different changes all day today as well.
I have never seen anything like that since 2014 when I staretd my affiliate marketing journe.
So, I goggled and found out that on July 21-22, 2018 there was at least one major algorithm update, and possibly two. Google updated their Quality Raters’ Guidelines.
This is what it says about this major changes in this post https://courses.mariehaynes.com/search-news-you-can-use/episode-42-light-version/?wlfrom=%2Fsearch-news-you-can-use%2Fepisode-42%2F.
We all know that unique original content is the king. But these Google updates definitely make it even more challenging to keep it up though.
I see that some posts I spent a lot of time and effort to create still rank good. But some posts that ether I or hired writers created dropped their rankings. And these posts were on the first page 2 days ago but had less personal touch. They were more informative than unique and engaging.
I am going through all my lost ranking posts and pages and trying to figure out how to improve the content.
Does anybody see big changes in your website rankings? Any feedback will be great.
Have a great day.
