Google Mentions November 2021 Spam Update. Webmaster Guidelines Updated.

Google’s ‘announcement’ may leave you wondering. Watch your rankings over the next week or so.

If you’re reading this, you probably know that Google does constant updates. 

If someone were to tell you, “Google did an update,” and gave you no further details, you’d probably want to say, “Yes, I know. Google always does updates.”

About 2 days ago, on November 3rd, 2021, there was a tweet on the Google Search Liaison Twitter channel.

And as you can see, that tweet links to a document you’re probably very familiar with (albeit updated on 28 October 2021): Webmaster Guidelines

Unfortunately, I don’t know exactly what Google updated on it’s Webmaster Guidelines. You (and your team, if you have one) may wish to quickly re-familiarize yourself with them, to ensure you’re abiding by them. 

Whether or not this is going to be a big update is uncertain. Usually, what some SEOs do is they try to monitor the rankings of several websites (maybe even thousands, if they have the resources). 

This helps them to correlate any variables among the sites that had the biggest rankings changes. 

On a smaller scale, you can do this with your website. 

We’ll try to stay on top of things. If any big revelations pertaining to this update are revealed soon, I’ll try to find out what I can and report them here.
