Do you know how many changes Google made to the search algorithm in the last year? If you guessed less than 1,600, you’re wrong.
According to Search Engine Land, “Google launched 1,653 new search changes last year, based on 9,800 live traffic experiments, 18,015 side-by-side experiments and 130,336 search quality tests.”
Fred and Project Owl are just a couple of the most recent updates, and ones that you’ve probably heard of. But what about the other 1,651 search changes? It would be almost impossible to get the details on each and every one of these changes, especially since Google isn’t typically keen on sharing that type of information.
However, if you simply want to take a closer look at what Google’s been up to, you can read and listen to how they make improvements to its search algorithm, here.
