    The serp trackers have been showing high serp changes these past 2 weeks. Has anyone seen any evidence of a Google update?

    I know nothing's been announced yet but they seem to be more secretive than ever so I wouldn't expect an announcment right away. What do you think?

    I've seen some pretty big traffic spikes on a penguin hit site, but I don't really care whether it recovers or not anymore. Its likely they're still tweaking and testing it because I am having large flux on non-penguinized sites too.

    July has been heating up, but it is the busy season for a lot of verticals. Mozcast, Algoroo, and AWR have seen some flux recently, but I don't think that is enough to confirm it. Also, I have a feeling Google will state it publically. Although, didn't they let Panda 4 roll out for a bit before saying anything (it was incremental too, if I'm not mistaken).

    I'm going to go with a firm no, not yet.

    One thing i have always been certain of, is that Google performs Daily SERP changes.

    During the early years, you'll need to wait for an update, before you rank for your keyword, but now, you can slowly climb to the top of your keyword in serp, if you know what you're doing and doing the right thing.

    I have seen websites been hit and some recovered, yet no public announcement from Google.


    But currently, one website that was hit in my niche came back to 6th page. Amazing! Let's see what the few days remaining in July holds.

    Some ups and downs, but nothing of the sort that would change life.

    I am seeing good things for my keywords, but with my traffic increases I'm not really seeing the type of sales I usually get. It's garbage, very little interaction with the site and a fraction of the leads and sales I normally get.

    Your website conversion rate has very little to do with google. it is your keywords

    It's not my keywords. There are very obvious dips in conversions on certain days, with the same traffic/rankings yet a massive reduction in quality of traffic. This seems to happen at very random times now and its definitely not natural behavior, atleast judging by the last 2 years of making money on my websites.
