Check if Google’s new Algorithm has affected your Site’s Organic Traffic

Most webmasters and bloggers are concerned about their website traffic after Google announced its new search engine algorithm recently. Currently, Google has launched this big algorithmic change in the U.S. only and plans to roll it out universally over time. Google’s new algo highly affects the ranking of sites on its search engine results page.


This is what Google says about its new SE ranking update:

This update is designed to reduce rankings for low-quality sites—sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful. At the same time, it will provide better rankings for high-quality sites—sites with original content and information such as research, in-depth reports, thoughtful analysis and so on.

To determine if recent Google algorithm has affected your website SE traffic, check it easily by analysing your site’s organic traffic in past few days using Google Analytics:

Google analytics

Just visit Google Analytics > Traffic sources > Search Engines and choose ‘Google’ (organic) as the traffic source. Now examine your site’s organic traffic by seeing its growth or fall after Feb 24. Fortunately, this update hasn’t impacted our organic traffic.

Do let us know if this new algorithm update has posed a positive or negative impact on your site’s traffic via Google search.

    I am wondering where Google will stop it’s infiltration and integration in our virtual life? Let’s hope that they won’t introduce something to play with our XY genes.
