On Monday, July 9th, Google issued an important Blog update regarding its highly anticipated “Speed Update.” This update, which has to do with the performance and speed of a web page on a mobile device, is now rolling out for all users.
If you noticed any unusual fluctuation in your traffic this week, it might be related to the most recent algorithm update. Google announced on Twitter today that it released another broad core algorithm update on Monday, 4/16/2018. This is another routine update that Google does a few times a year.
On March 12, 2018, the Google SearchLiaison Twitter account confirmed that they implemented a “broad core algorithm update” last week.
