“Is there another update going on?” We are hearing this a lot since the last weekend. And frankly can’t blame the site owners. As, we too are seeing some serious changes in the SERP’s.
Many evergreen pages in every niche are missing from the SERP’s. They are not getting outranked but disappearing all of a sudden from the search results.
In GSC, its visible that pages are disappearing, but can’t follow any pattern there. Tensions are rising as many fearing their pages can also disappear without any notice or trace.
We also talked some of the site owner’s who are facing this problem. They notified us that they haven’t got any manual action penalty or such sort which can indicate where the problem is.
Apparently, this thing global right now. As, many in the online communities are talking about it. Here are some comments from the WebmasterWorld.
Apparently G’s doesn’t like our site. I’ve lost 10s of high profile keywords to be found nowhere in serps. So nothing new it seems after the May update.
Seeing big changes on the UGC side, or simply outbound links side of it. Could this be related to Google announcing last fall that they are going to be treating no_follow links differently?
Here are some comments of the discussion going on our forum. Following the Google SERP & Algorithm Changes. Many are also questioning about bugs.
GSC just vanished few urls of ours. Is it a bug or something else?
I hope its a bug. Because are reporting this. A sudden de-indexing is a real challenge for any webmaster. A sudden de-indexing is a real challenge for any webmaster.
Meanwhile SEMrush Sensor’s are also showing signs of an update.
Many are also having issues indexing new article through GSC and automatically. It’s my personal opinion that get your page exposed somehow. Maybe its via social media channels or through social bookmarking sites. The method doesn’t matter here.
