    Today many users and online platforms report that there are huge movements in SERP. I have run a few tests about that and I have spot that Google Search Console doesn't index redirects anymore. That means all redirects value lost and probably this is the reason that ranks drop and not an algorithm update.

    I had 6 clients drop rankings pretty hard this morning. Backlink profiles are completely different, websites are optimized - can't really make sense of it yet. Hoping maybe it's just a blip in the force.

    Not necessarily things you should change as a result of an algorithm update, but to see algorithm updates as an opportunity to look at whether your site makes it easy for search engines to see what it’s about, amongst other things.

    People who use Wordpress, can you check on Google Search Console if you have a lot of pages that are crawled but not indexed? I have a lot of comment spam on my Wordpress site.

    These searches look like this:

    search/분당스파ωωω。JJHAJA닷com+유유닷컴+●유흥커뮤니티●분당스파❋분당안마☬분당마사지ば분당휴게텔と분당풀싸롱❛분당키스방

    On Google Search Console they're crawled, but not indexed because I have a noindex tag on them. Nevertheless, I don't think it's good. There are currently almost 20,000 of these pages that have been crawled by Google while I only have around 200-300 real pages on my website.

    In addition, some of these searches have created RSS pages that show an XML page like this:

    search/분당스파ωωω。JJHAJA닷com+유유닷컴+●유흥커뮤니티●분당스파❋분당안마☬분당마사지ば분당휴게텔と분당풀싸롱❛분당키스방/feed/rss2/

    I have now removed the search function from my site entirely because I'm not sure what else to do about it. However, the /feed/rss2/ pages for these searches still exist.

    I also mentioned this in the telegram group. Just figured I'd post it here as well to see if others that are not in the telegram group have a similar issue.

    How did you remove the search function from WP? I have had this issue on a few sites over the last 9 months.

    Omg, these fucking indexing/crawling problems just keeps coming again and again. They just deindexed a few of my websites again, they are not in the index anymore. No manual penalty or such. Bulkaddurl is not working as well.

    What the heck is going on there?

    New websites? I mean, websites that didn’t get hit in the past, or websites that got hit and you index again with bulkadd?
