Google’s August core search algorithm update

Google Algorithm Update

Danny Sullivan from Google has confirmed that Google has processed a significant algorithm update in the Google Search Results after many SEO people found a considerable difference in their keyword ranking.

Danny Sullivan on Twitter –  “When we have updates where there are specific things that may help, we do try to tell you that. With these, there is nothing specific to do — and we do think it’s actionable to understand that, in that hopefully people don’t try fixing things that aren’t really “broken.”

Danny also has confirmed that it was the one as similar to the board core algorithm update occurred on the March. He also retweeted the announcement he made during the March algorithm update when he tweeted the present August Core Search Algorithm update.

Google’s August core search algorithm updates

There are no such essential factors or changes made in this Google Algorithm update, some of them might have seen fluctuations in ranking due to some small elements like page speed or interstitials.

They can fix these easily by finding the reason for the change and bring back the ranking within a shorter period. With this core algorithm update, there are no ranking factors targeted except the content quality and pages quality in the Google Search results. The same has occurred in the last algorithm update made on March; Google stated that there was nothing wrong with many pages, they can focus on some specific factors to get their ranking back easily.

In this August Google Algorithm Update, Danny has confirmed the same, trying to provide more details to the website will get their rank back and there are no extra factors anyone needs to focus on this core google algorithm update.

Danny also has advised to focus on the content quality rather than thinking more broadly on the ranking factors, and he tweeted as

“Want to do better with a broad change? Have great content. Yeah, the same boring answer. However, if you want a better idea of what we consider great content, read our raters guidelines. That’s like almost 200 pages of things to consider: https://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.com/en//insidesearch/howsearchworks/assets/searchqualityevaluatorguidelines.pdf. “

Danny also commented on the tweet that Google can share many actionable pieces of stuff if they have made them, so you need not spend more time on fixing things. You can check out your quality of the content instead of changing things randomly.

Danny Tweeted like

“If we can share more actionable stuff with the large updates, we will. But, I hope telling people effectively that it is NOT X, Y or Z things is indeed helpful. And from last time, this is really key: https://twitter.com/searchliaison/status/973241542180614144 ”

Apart from these, Japanese Google Webmaster team has also tweeted regarding the role of the broad core algorithm update that they have updated the core algorithm; people can change their content if they found any drops in the ranking factors, they advised not to change other factors as it only targeted quality pages and content.

Japanese Google Webmaster Team Tweet –

“This week we have updated a wide range of core algorithms. This is done several times a year, what you can do for the impact received by this update is to make high-quality content that the search users are searching for as always. For details, please see the English post.”

The present ranking tools and other SEO tools are not showcasing broad changes rather than like few other broad core google algorithm updates, maybe the update was slower roll out, and we have to wait for few days to check out the desirable changes in the keyword rankings.
