In this morning's Google hangout with John Mueller, John said "from our point of view there was no Fred update." This is after they officially did confirm the Fred update a couple months ago. In fact, we covered this update in great detail and documented the patterns of the types of sites that got hit by this Fred update.[seroundtable.com...]
Google: There Was No Fred Update
Google has been officially fined by the EU $2.7 billion over their shopping search results and how the company gives an "illegal advantage to own comparison shopping service." Meanwhile Google said they "respectfully disagree" and will consider an appeal.[seroundtable.com...]
The EU told Google they have 90-days to make changes or fines will continue to mount for the search engine.
On the other hand, rival comparison shopping services are subject to Google's generic search algorithms, including demotions (which lower a search entry's rank in Google's search results). Comparison shopping services in the EEA are prone to be demoted by at least two different algorithms, which were first applied in 2004 and 2011, respectively.

Over the past week or so, I've been collecting data on the June 25th Google update. I have received over 70 web sites that claimed they were hit by this update and then I also requested data from SEMRush and RankRanger of the URLs they found that lost a lot of visibility around that date.
I can tell you that after checking both on page and link data, nothing really stands out as a single pattern. The categories of sites that got hit cross between blogs, news sites, e-commerce sites, directories, and even basic corporate web sites. So there is no pattern by genre of site. There is no pattern of the industry any of these sites are in. Many of these sites have no ads at all, some have normal ads, and some have insane penalty worthy ads. Some sites have average content and some have horrible content. Some have very mobile friendly and fast web sites and some do not. Some have very few normal links and some have lots of normal links - some have horrible links.

Could someone explain one moment?
My site in google recently got up from 25 to 15-10 position on the main keyword.
But I have not received an additional gain on visitors from google on my site (on others requests). Is it ok?
