Nothing unusual in my stats. Seoforum went slightly up, otherwise same as always.
One site is health related magazine, the other one is kinda product review aggregator. Used to be at steady traffic levels. About 700-800 visitors on health magazine, but for last 3-4 days, we are down to just about 50-60% of that.
Do you see something similar in your stats? Any confirmation by google? I found SERoundtable flash news about it, but doesn't look like a critical update. At least google says it's just a regular update they do on daily/weekly basis.
Other sites stay about the same traffic wise.
got some movement here and there, but if I didn't read this topic, I'd think it's all normal or almost normal but who knows anyway. do we know what exactly was this update all about?
Yes!! Bring signatures. You should see a lot more content AND traffic.
Some interesting topics popped up in the latest issue of Google Webmaster Central office-hours hangout.
Probably the most interesting question was if the bugs on Google are more than usual or are you guys being more transparent than usual?
Answer by John Mueller > I wouldn't say it's more often but we, we definitely ran into a bi,g big bug there which took a quite some time to resolve. And because that's very visible to site owners in particular through Search Console that's something that’s important for us to tell people about. ...
Check the video below for full answer from John and other interesting questions and answers.

God. That guy in the video from thumbnail. We do everything for our users. Quality conent content, unique platform, a lot of duplicate content. What a BS lol.
Wondering if google uses visitor interactions to rank sites. Not just plain traffic numbers. Time spent on the site, scrolling, clicking, using browser back button and so on. Anyone ever tested that? Would be worth testing?
Do you use any third party services to log your search engine positions (other than Search Console, which I don't really consider being third party, as it's Google itself)?
Do you keep track of your most important pages manually, using spreadsheet or something similar?
Looking for your insights.
Found some discussion regarding ahrefs here. I was wondering if it was possible for me and my friends buy one account and share the access. We would access it from different conputers, different IP addresses possibly at the same time. Does that work? I am looking for real experience, not what you think. Thank you.
