Google Updates: all the updates to the search engine algorithm

Every day, the Google Search system undergoes an average of about 13 change operations, bringing the total to nearly 5,000 changes per year, which cause a more or less noticeable impact on the SERPs, the search results pages.

These Google updates encompass a wide range of operations, such as user interface changes, new feature launches, troubleshooting, and, most importantly, ranking interventions, between those that remain unconfirmed and the official Broad Core Updates, updates to Google’s overall Search algorithm in light of new quality metrics or search intent changes.

Each algorithm change and update by Google aims to always ensure the quality of search results for users, always providing the most relevant answers to the queries and needs of those using the search engine.
