For those in Europe, many will have been settling down for the day ahead to the news that for the first time in a long time, Google has made some big changes to their algorithm. For our American friends, many will be waking up to the news that there has been some large fluctuations occurring. Our Google Grump tool is detecting changes all over the world:


All countries affected


All of the countries, bar Australia, that we track in Google Grump have been affected on both Desktop and Mobile showing very high volatility:

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Netherlands
  • Denmark
  • Germany
  • France

Australia shows it is not as affected by the update. This is certainly something that we will be keeping a close eye on.


All but Australia


As we can see below, there is not much difference between desktop and mobile; the algorithm update has hit desktop and mobile almost equally, suggesting that it’s an all-around update.


Desktop today


Mobile today


Delving a little deeper and looking at the trend on thousands of domains tracked by AccuRanker; it would appear that a domain has either been affected by the algorithmic changes or it has managed to avoid it all together. This certainly something to keep an eye on as the days roll on and it will be equally interesting to see if Google have anything to say about it.  In the meantime though, make sure you subscribe to Google Grump so that you never miss a potential algorithm update.
