Google Algorithm Update – “Fred”

  • Name: Fred (Unofficial)
  • Targeting: Link Quality

Following a few unnamed updates, Google release a ranking update that seemed to be targeting link quality.

While the name “Fred” is not the official name, Gary Illyes joked on twitter to name all updates going forward “Fred”…so the name stuck.

This is still an unconfirmed update, but hey, at least it has a name!
