Guys - i noticed a major shift in my niche in the last 24 hours and also few other niches that I follow. has any body else noticed this?
 
Nope, Google has delayed their update in fear of Bart Simpson. You are just imagining.

On a serious note: I noticed some change in my niche, nothing major though.

It’s because @bartosimpsonio didn’t leak anything today.

They're trying to fix the indexing clusterfuck. There are serious issues.

After they fix it, there'll be an update. I thought they'd fix things faster, 2 weeks ago.

Something changed but this isn't the big one yet. Could be starting though.
 
are you guys seeing a major google dance in the last 24 hours. it seems google can't figure out the positions and keeps making changes every few hours.... this has been my observation across some keywords

AI is going mad!
 
I haven't noticed anything across 10+ websites since the June (or July) update. Not even a little dancing.

thanks for response and confirmation.... it helps to figure things out in my niche... might be a niche anomaly.

Yeah it could be. I forgot to mention; all the 10 sites are in the same "niche category" (for example; outdoors), so I can't really say for sure that other niches got hit, if that makes sense (YMYL etc). Also, it might just be a Google dance if you built some links recently?

all different sites in the niche that I am looking at are having this dance. not just my site.

Interesting, is it a YMYL niche? You said past 24h hours, I actually checked my sites 48h ago, so I should maybe check again.

You think 10 sites in the same category beat all the sites rolled into one if they are all the same category?

Everyone uses outdoor as the throwaway example so of course it's what I'm actually doing

You mean, build one humongous site vs 10 smaller ones in the same niche, or?

Exactly. If you have 10 sites in the same overall category and built them all as one sub category on your page seems like you could leverage it all better.....

That being said I guess you can link between the sites which is nice

Yeah it depends on the niche. If it actually was outdoors, I'd probably make on larger site. However in the niche I am, there's several "smaller niches" within the niche itself, so making several sites makes a lot more sense, esepcially since they're all monetized in different ways from Drop shipping to affiliate, to adsense, to whatever.

I also like to build duplicate websites if the niche is really good, why have one site when you can rank 5 properties on the first page.

And yes, exactly that - If one of my sites perform poorly, I simply use it as a PBN or even do a 301 redirect later.

Oh, and also; this way you can sell of a few websites for a big cash injection while keeping the rest for passive income. But yeah, again, depends on the niche.

EDIT: And another reason: If your site get hit in a Google update or whatever, then at least you have another site or two that (hopefully) survived.

Another reason: You can try different SEO approaches (blackhat/white/grey/whatever) on all the different sites to see what's working and what's not.

no, it is a business site. had nothing to do with YMYL concept.

Interesting - Hope you'll come back here and update us on the dance later.
