Google’s last spam update came out on October 19. It focused on spam content and took out the best search results. Google said in an update that this update was done rolling out on October 21. As expected from a spam update, it didn’t have a huge effect on search rankings. But a much bigger change in the Google search rankings on Saturday morning was a surprise.
People are now wondering if this change is because of the spam update or if it’s a new ranking update from Google. It’s possible that Google told everyone that the spam update was done before it really was and that the changes we see in search rankings are due to the spam update.
No one will know for sure until Google makes a public statement. Another reason for this big change in search rankings could be that the tools that should be reporting it missed it by a day or more.

Google’s tracking tools show changes.
After the spam update was finished rolling out, Google’s automated tracking tools show that things have changed. Since the rollout was finished, there has been a lot of change in the search rankings. People are lost and don’t know what’s going on. Was it the spam update and its lingering effects, or a new Google ranking update that had nothing to do with the last spam update? We will have to wait and keep a close eye on our rankings before we can say for sure.
Here is what people who saw a drop in traffic at BlackHat World and Webmaster World are saying:
Guys, I have no idea why my traffic suddenly drops. This is insane. I paid for some clean backlinks from guest posts. I’m not sure if it’s a change. What’s going on? My website is 5 months old and gets between 80 and 100 visitors a day, but it only has 8 visitors right now.
All of my websites, both “blackhat” and “whitehat,” have lost 95% of their traffic. They were all put on the same Adsense account.
My website got hit very hard, and almost 95% of the traffic went away.
I get that some of my sites aren’t good enough and are just going down. But this site I have has been around for more than three years and is completely normal. I haven’t built any links or tried to trick Google in any way. This is what I see when I go to Google Search Console today. Follow our website Newsyorbits for more new updates. Thank you
