    Danny Sullivan of Google has confirmed that Google is updating its algorithm. He called it another broad core update. - A broad core update means that Google is not targeting any niche or any particular signals, like quality. In a broad core algorithm update, Google is not targeting anything.

    waiting for typical "my ranking is going {up|down}" comments with no info whatsoever about niche, kw difficulty, site age. If you guys are experiencing fluctuations in rankings then atleast share some insights please so that we can start guessing what might be wrong

    I think It's a usual update, Google always does to add some small change in every update, It does not affect site traffic.

    Crazy things happen here in Germany.

    There are 5 projects of mine which are very very similar to each other. All targeting Beauty/Health niche, all of them have a lot of great content (10k+ articles) and all of them are build on expired domains with a nice brandable name.

    The G Core Update hit 4 of my 5 projects. One of them, actually the oldest one of them, got a huge push and increased it's organic traffic about 40%.
    The other 3 projects which are affected lost all heir best rankings. I don't see any pattern here yet but it hit me hard :-(

    Health Niche. This site got hit by medic update and now it's rising back without doing anything.

    Here's my anecdotal contribution: my evergreen Amazon sites have seen zero impact from this update.

    This update has no effect on the website, and maybe the big website can find the update!

    If you say you didn't change anything after the medic update. Maybe now it's coming because of good backlinks, unique content etc

    Tell me one thing. Did you create any good quality backlinks after Medic update???' If you say No for this then your website is blessed :p

    I did not do anything. After it got hit by a medic update I left it there to die. Did not change anything nor built any links.
