Big whopper of an update just now, the biggest that's gotten to my sites in months.

Likely Update: April 6th, 2022

Looking like something serious is rumbling about. I've not seen a reaction to it yet on my sites. It could be the Product Reviews update rolling out still, or perhaps a tweak to it already. Hard to say anything yet.

Perplexing update.. I'm working on a mom blog scrape project, 4-5 hours a day in Ahrefs looking at histories.. not seeing uniform patterns with the April and December PRUs of 2021 and this latest. Meaning some up in last rollouts down in this and vice versa.. PRUs don't seem to have consistent impact.. Typical Googs I guess?

Looks like another update.

Noticed one of my sites seems to have rolled back to previous ranking positions pre March Google Product Reviews update.

this exactly, I saw a complete rollback on the hit I took, I took a 40% hit on previous update, this one bumped me 50%, with the 10% I assume was natural growth. Hope they don't try that again since my biggest hit was to my info content not my reviews.

As usual these days, I've not had time to dig and see what's what, but I did notice one of my sites got an extra 1k sessions (which amounts to about a 16% increase).

Possible Update: May 16th

Some of these volatility trackers are showing it, some aren't. But I definitely noticed an immediate 10% boost in traffic on one of my sites:

Google has always pushed some kind of small update daily, you know. But it seems like the ones they've been releasing lately have produced a lot more volatility. For maybe the last year and a half, it seems like they may have sub-algorithms fighting sub-algorithms or something. Everything just feels less subtle.
