12 Aug Google Algorithm Update
Yes, Google has launched another algorithm – that seems to have been the theme for the last few years! Although the Google algorithm updates move a step forward each time in making the search experience easy and more relevant, they can cause fluctuations in rankings. Each update causes uncertainty.

After two months of recess, the SEO community has to brace for yet another Google Broad Core Algorithm Update.
Unlike the daily updates that Google launches, the broad core algorithm update has vast implications as it is notorious for shuffling the organic results, causing fluctuations in the organic rankings of websites.
