What You Should Know About “Fred,” Google’s Latest Update

New Jersey SEO Specialists at Premier Legal Marketing Many SEO ranking and monitoring services have seen wild fluctuations in Google rankings recently. So what is the source of all the moving and shaking? It’s Fred, Google’s latest update.

This update to the Google algorithm has negatively affected numerous websites, with many dropping dramatically in rankings. In fact, some websites have seen 90 percent of their keywords drop in several places in their search engine results page (SERP).

What do the affected sites have in common? They are lacking in quality content. They also seem to prioritize ad revenue over expert-generated, high-quality, useful content.

Google has neither confirmed nor denied the Fred update, but that is par for the course. Google has formerly stated in the past that it will not announce updates because its algorithm is updated regularly, sometimes daily. But the results make it obvious.

How can you improve the quality of your content and avoid being on the wrong side of Fred? Here are a few tips:

  • Write content that’s dedicated to meeting a specific user search query
  • Diversify your content; don’t write the same content over and over
  • Design your website to be visually appealing
