Whereas it has been calm for the previous a number of days, as we speak is a brand new day and I’m seeing some indicators of extra volatility and rating fluctuations as of the previous 24 hours or much less. Among the automated monitoring instruments are choosing it up, and I’m seeing some renewed chatter within the search engine marketing business.
Possibly this can be a continuation of the delayed useful content material and hyperlink spam updates or perhaps this can be a new Google search rating replace? It’s tremendous onerous to say. We noticed some massive turbulence days earlier than Christmas after which issues clamed down rather a lot.
So what are we seeing?
