New Google Algorithm Fred is Confirmed & Websites Overall Quality Issues

As you probably are aware, we at last got genuine confirmation this past Friday on the March seventh/eighth update named the Google Fred update, which I believed focused on low value content websites.

John Mueller really talked about the issue in his Webmaster hangout on Friday evening at around 12:50pm EST, which was 90 minutes after Gary Illyes affirmed the update.

John Mueller at the 53:50 mark into the video was given a Fred quality and in his reaction, John refered to “quality” six times and he didn’t invest all that much time answering the question.

I think we have to lookup again on webmaster guidelines.

Basic principles

  • Make pages primarily for users, not for search engines.
  • Don’t deceive your users.
  • Avoid tricks intended to improve search engine rankings. A good rule of thumb is whether you’d feel comfortable explaining what you’ve done to a website that competes with you, or to a Google employee. Another useful test is to ask, “Does this help my users? Would I do this if search engines didn’t exist?”
  • Think about what makes your website unique, valuable, or engaging. Make your website stand out from others in your field.
