Google has announced that it is releasing a new search algorithm that it hopes will better catch people who spam its search results or purposely do things to rank better that are against Google’s publishers guidelines. Google says it will impact about 3% of search queries. The update was rolled out yesterday.
If you’re looking for a catchy name for this update as Google has sometimes given other ones like the Panda Update, bad news. Officially, Google is calling it the “webspam algorithm update.” But we’re game for a catchy name. Any suggestions?
