Looks like Tim Mayer of Yahoo has announced a “fourth weather report” about an imminent update to their index.
Matt Cutts of Google also posts on Jagger3, referencing recent changes made with Google’s ranking particulars as “coming along”.
Not only are there names being given to these updates, but iterations – 1, 2, 3, etc. I suppose this is akin to software updates: Version, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.
Web site owners, don’t need to “do” anything in reaction or proactively to these kinds of updates. They should know something is happening though, should site rankings fall or fluctuate dramatically and then persist.
One thing I’ve found is that the less “dramatic” the SEO tactics implemented on a site, the less “dramatic” the fluctuations these types of updates will have on a particular web site.
