According to, a leading SEO data tool, Google has unleashed a massive quake in the search space today that was rated as a 9.2 out of ten on the volatility scale.

Google Tremor

Today’s update suggests a significant algorithm update.

What Does This Mean?

It means that if you have a website – you better keep an eye on it’s search positions.  Updates like this are common, and there was an update just over a month ago that affected many associates of mine.  I had one site get beat up pretty bad, but it had some gray hat tactics and zero clients were affected.

I’ll be updating this post as more information is released.

Does anyone else feel it’s completely ridiculous considering many people are trying to remember the lives that were lost during 9/11 today?
