Google has announced that this week, a new update to their search ranking algorithm will be released. This new update is called the "helpful content update." The main goal of this updated algorithm is to target content that isn't actually helpful or useful to people. Google hopes that by implementing this change, the quality of results users see when they conduct a Google search will improve overall.
Last night, Google had a significant outage that is continuing today. It appeared to be more than a power outage, as numerous complaints about indexing problems, pages dropping out of the index, and super poor quality and outdated search results were presented in Google this morning.
