    Haven't seen much change on my end. Anyone seeing any serp changes going on more than usual?

    Some people seem to think some update is going on according to seroundtable and Mozcast also shows high serp weather.

    Any particular location ie google.com, .ie, .au, .co.uk?

    I'm not seeing anything odd, just normal and in-line for my efforts. Some spam/test sites aren't moving but that could simply be from that particular test.

    Everything looks normal to me... Though I randomly overtook an official brand's website for their own brand name lol. Unfortunately Google has placed like a gazillion-billion ads above the fold on the search results so my position 1 looks more like position 20. Nice ad directory Google has got going on. So much greed, but do they actually need more money? The owners of Google could easily afford to buy a private tropical island, wtf do they need EVEN MORE money for?

    I seen big increases on the desktop side for my keywords today, but not on mobile - still the same. I figure they would follow suit soon. Finally hit the 3rd spot on one of the ones I wanted.

    As an online business owner it disturbs me what Google is doing with their ads. If they keep going overboard with it, I'd hope another search engine can cut significantly into Google's search traffic and have less ads. A search engine based less on corporate greed but more on simply providing good results would be nice.

    Any quality search engine would need to fight spam but I think you can have solid one with minimal ads and less greed. In my own niche I see crappy websites that haven't updated in years ranking fairly high for keywords which kind of suggests to me Google's priorities are in ad revenue over their search quality.

    Also the way they have most of the same websites rank for so many queries is pretty weak too.
