Can someone please write in few words, what we have learned from this latest update and what are the thigns that are now important?

1. Don't rely on Google for your income and 2. "They moved your cheese". What's important? quality time with friends and family.

@cabsco – I agree. If it was a core update, even if Google didn't pre-announce it, at the very least they would announce that it's rolling out by now, because clearly something is happening. Maybe this will just go down as an “unconfirmed” update. Although, anything can happen, and they can announce later.

i would wait for the update to settle before getting too excited, I used to see this all the time whilst an update was in progress.

This statement is quite accurate. Right now I seem to be getting good conversions from Google. Once the Amazon domain crowding is back in place at the end of this algo rollout, like all previous updates in the last 5+ years, sales from Google will disappear. I'd like this update to do something different, but why would Google abandon a lack of diversity in their SERPs at this point?

Coming back to the update. Nothing really happened. It was just one of those bi-weekly shuffles.

Indeed. Nothing happened. It was just another regular update and probably something else that trigged trackers. Hopefully, there will be a core update in September..

Mod's note: Unusual situation here. I'm splitting off material for two threads at this point (or three, depending on how you count)..

First, I've split off a new Sept Updates and SERPs discussion to the following thread...

Google Updates and SERP Changes - September 2019
https://www.webmasterworld.com/google/4962430.htm [webmasterworld.com]

^^^^The above thread is active now. Please read the Mod's note in that thread before posting. It's for Updates and SERPs discussion only.

I'm then splitting this August updates thread off into a new discussion that went far off topic, but is an excellent discussion that we want to preserve momentum and keep ot going. Currently, though, that discussion also includes on-topic material intended for the Aug updates thread, That will need to be edited out of the new thread gradually and moved back... but it should not interfere with the continuation of the new discussion, here...

Google, big tech, disruption, and the international marketplace
https://www.webmasterworld.com/google/4962448.htm [webmasterworld.com]

(^^^^^ My title improvised from main topics I see in the new thread.)

While we move posts on-topic about the updates thread from the new thread back to Updates thread, anyone wanting to follow what updates discussion there was will have to read both threads. Eventually, the big tech/disruption discussion will be cleared of updates material. Please forgive occasional cuts in your posts where the post could not be split over multiple threads....

And this, folks ;) , is why your volunteer mods ask you please to use Reported (hidden in the pull-down next to the Msg#), so we can at least have a shot of being on top of handling off topic posts easily. It's very difficult to do during an active discussion, without hiding the thread for a few hours while we do it. We'd really appreciate all the help we can get.
