This past week we had a small algo update that Google has confirmed. Below is the latest:

Google has confirmed today that it made a “small” algorithm update to its search ranking system this past week.

Danny Sullivan from Google said on Twitter “We haven’t had a major update of that nature, but we did have a smaller one this week.”

Here is the tweet:

@dannysullivan any chance we can get some sort of comment from Google on this? cc @JohnMu https://twitter.com/rustybrick/status/1045643645272158209

Our core algorithm is updated all the time. For major updates, we’ll continue to share about those on @searchliaison, as we have been. We haven’t had a major update of that nature, but we did have a smaller one this week.

What happened? Google routinely updates its search ranking algorithms to provide the most relevant and useful search results. Sometimes those updates impact a larger percentage of sites and sometimes they impact a smaller percent of sites. This algorithmic update was on the smaller scale, according to Google.

Who was impacted? That is still unclear. Google did not say who or what types of sites were impacted. Google just said it did a smaller update this week and did not provide additional clarity.
