    Among the different money sites I have, there is one that has had a rather visible effect from this Google Update.
    It is a multilingual e-commerce covering two main languages, English and French. Before, I had several English keywords that referred to their equivalent pages in French in the SERPs.
    Now, with the update, in addition to having had a significant increase in the ranking on the majority of keywords (it's a bit early to confirm these new rankings), the pages with English keywords that redirected to the French version now all redirect to their good English pages.

    Same! I also had the best day ever.

    Do you also tend to write high quality articles and do whitehat SEO? :)

    The google right now is big lab - they test AI on their engines and the results are always self-shock.

    After the old problems are solved, the new ones will come at once.

    Core algo is focus on content. As if we're not doing that anyway. Many aff sites now are like 5k to 7k words, like wtf, I don't have that kind time to read it. I guess Big G wants us to create a novel on one page/post. And I'm not sure how it helps user to stay on the page. Unless it's a scandalous post or a big news you shouldn't miss, then I won't bother reading an almost-ebook worth of article regarding why gaming mouse is important. Hmmmmpfff!

    They ignore backlinks made by competitors using anchor texts like "porn". Overall they penalize sites on basis of anchor text distribution. Blog comments are usually made using automated softwares and can not provide good anchor text distribution profile to the site.

    It's hard to say if there exists anything like white-hat SEO. What I can say for sure, however, is that I didn't buy/build a single link for this website in either 2018 or 2019.

    Whether an article is high or low quality is also quite subjective. :). What I can say for sure, however, is that my on-page metrics (especially average time on various pages) are excellent. And I often do not use the main keyword a single time in an entire article (except of the title, of course).

    Glad that you are also doing well. Continue the good work :).
    My condolences to all who got hit hard this time.

    I don't see any negative or positive effect on Google.DE so far. The google dance just keeps going on like it has been for the last 4 weeks.

    Why people started talking about content? Any news regarding this?

    hmm come to content , is still suggestive. For an example like news site?
    CNN, BBC etc they report the same content but of course re write it, isn't same for many of us here
    spin the content or rewrite it as human readable?

    and how about those Quiz site than? No content just Quiz ?

    Same. My traffic is in the single F'ing digits...daily.

    I should add, for those who think some of us are just groaning, I'm in a niche where I am an authority. I mean personally, I'm an authority. So I started a blog in an effort to push out all the crappy sites that are sharing bogus information in my field. I was starting to gain some ground until Dec/Jan. Now it's like starting all over again.

    Hoping to see some return traffic with today's change.
