It’s possible that we have yet another Google algorithm update today May 22, 2021, with the rest of the updates earlier this month culminating in one massive Google update this morning.
Industry tools are off the charts, higher than they have been for awhile now.
It’s too early to include industry chatter, but we’re keeping an eye on things.
So far, this is the industry chatter over on Webmaster World:
What Do the Tools Say?
Semrush’s sensor is off the scales at 8.7 out of 10, and their SERP volatility chart shows that readings are higher than normal, and numbers are also higher than normal in the industry readings. This indicates a possible massive algorithm update, although it is unconfirmed by Google at this stage.
Will Google Confirm This One?
Given its magnitude, one wonders if Google is going to confirm this update.
We know they have confirmed prior core updates in the past, and that they do tend to confirm core updates.
It still remains to be seen or confirmed, however. Also, it is still too early to tell what kind of update this is.
As this is an unconfirmed update, we’ll continue to keep an eye on things as they occur.
