Here Is The 1st Google Search Ranking Update Of 2019

It seems like Google is not going to stop their search engine algorithm update ever. It’s just 2019 started and Google also started their updates. The updates started around 5th or 6th January and continue on 7th January. It is not officially said but webmaster community and search engine ranking tools validating the change in ranking in the google search result.

Here is some snippet of Google webmaster forum discussion

Big changes happening in the serps since Friday for us. Anyone noticing an uptick or downward slide of long tail referrals? First time we’ve seen much since the big changes in August/September.

@SnowMan68 My site is on a rollercoaster right now. Increased traffic over the last few days, significant rankings increase across the board yesterday, then a smaller drop back today.

Uptick, about 20-25% (depending on the day) compared to average October and November days. It is basically a reversal of the 15% drop that we had in late August and early September. We’ll see how it plays out this week.

I have stopped reacting to changes too quickly as I then don’t know if my site has dropped due to the algo update – or if its my changes. Let the dust settle then react!

Sudden traffic losses could be a google ploy to see how you will react. If you don’t do anything, your traffic will be restored after a few weeks. But if you start making changes to you site, your traffic will drop even more 😉
