We are back with the last SEO roundup for the month of August. This month has all been about the new core update that Google introduced on August 1, and since then many comments about the possible outcomes have been made.

A new Google search algorithm update was indicated by many webmasters on Wednesday, August 22. It is hard to say whether it has something to do with the previous Medic update or a brand new and unrelated core update, but many SEO tools showed signs of ranking fluctuations in SERPs.
The chatter is not much among the SEO community, but if your websites showed signs of decreased or increased rankings this Wednesday then the new update is to be blamed. We are still not sure what this update is about, but if you have any idea do share it with us in comments.
