Yesterday, Wednesday, January 18th, there seemed to be another shake-up or Google search ranking algorithm update kickoff. It just ended on the day, but this time it’s the same.
I’ve seen chatter from deep within the SEO industry and some tracking tools gaining volatility. Let’s start today with a tracker…

Here’s what the tracking tool is showing:

So these tools are aware of volatility or may improve soon.
Below is a quote from the WebmasterWorld forums that started late on Friday and surged on Saturday. Many comments have been received on this story with ranking changes.
With any luck, my global traffic seems to be back to just above average. We had above average business inquiries last week, especially from the West asking for a change from popular tourist destinations.
Another spike of the day Semrush 5.4
My main keyword is not stable up and down
Ditto. Our ranks are great, but our ads are very saturated and we have very little traffic. My guess is that only those who have special ad rates with Google, or who have deals with Google that might bring them affiliate income, will be able to survive this ad carnage. think. Also, a lack of free traffic would render many businesses unviable.
Non-Google sales are so strong that some people use other search engines for shopping-related searches.
Global traffic today was unusually high for one particular widget that was popular but not so popular. After checking the logs, I found a generic referral from a US designer magazine. One-sided links still work.
Anyone notice very low conversions from G-Traffic right now?
Has anyone experienced a traffic drop followed by a traffic spike?
Could a potential major update or another algorithm update be received?
Traffic has been fairly light since Tuesday and very light today. At noon, search is down 15% and direct is down 32%. US 30% off for her, Canada -70% off, Australia hasn’t even been visited once today. Continental Europe will also fall like a stone. Only Britain remains strong. During that time, my ranking has remained stable, even slightly higher.
Has anyone noticed anything in the last 24 hours or so?
