What do Google’s moods mean?
Google’s in a bit of a grump – rankings seem to be moving more than usual.
There’s a usual pattern in ranking changes; however, if the Grump Rating shows an upward trend over the next few days, it’s likely Google’s mood is about to change.
Nothing to worry about here, everything looks calm.
Behind the scenes?
AccuRanker’s Google Grump rating is based on a unique algorithm, built to calculate the average number of rank changes, across the top 100 results per keyword.
- 30,000 randomly selected keywords.
- Split 50/50 between mobile and desktop.
Upon a result:
- AccuRanker loop all 100 rankings and compare them to the previous day.
- If the URL has dipped or fluctuated, it is subtracted from its position the day before.
- The final index number for a given keyword is calculated by finding the sum of all the differences, and dividing this by the number of results (normally 100).
Then, each keyword index is compared and averaged to give you our Google Grump Rating.
