    It mostly affecting sites with maximum numbers of single page ads or pop-ups. Few more known effects of this update is on non-mobile optimized sites and sites with bad backlinks.

    The new google algorithm update 'Fred' appears to put a higher emphasis on link quality.

    Google is targeting low-value content links and PBNs, at least that’s what they say all over.

    As far as I see Google Fred update was 'due' long time.

    Too many people were just using 'low' quality PBN to rank their sites. By low quality PBN, I am referring to those PBN which were solely built for backlink purpose. Most of the sites using those kind of PBN, experienced 90% traffic drop after the Google Fred update.

    The links from irrelevant blogs and forums will be penalised by new update( All these are low quality)

    I see a drop on my friend's website which had too many tags with almost no new content. And he was publishing many very short blog posts. I already said him to stop this in the past but now he learnt his lessons.

    Google Fred update target low quality content, I have noticed a obstruction on one of my website on 08th March, which could be measured as a result of the update.
