    It is true, Google makes algorithmic updates hundreds of times per year, Matt Cutts revealed this a few years ago.

    Did you understand the answer?

    While there are big changes in strategy which have given us Penguin etc it would be extremely naive to think that Google isn't tinkering constantly and running their own A-B testing.

    That was my first thought too... I would assume it to be correct. Do you have any actual research you've done on this, or is it simply your own thinking. Just curious now, as my interest is peaked.

    Around the 14 minute mark, John Mueller of Google tells about how Google makes SERP algorithm changes on a daily basis.

    They announce their major updates but they would be making updates to their algorithm all the time.

    I see Google doing it all the time, but they share only major updates they do in their search algorithm for different purposes.

    There is no such count for Google updates. But it usually occurs on events and festivals seasons. I guess more than 1000 times in a year.

    Quite a lot actualy - i`m oftenly strugling with that. Always has to watch unintentional changes on the pages and its relevance to the new Google requirements. btw using seo alerts for monitoring.

    Also there are always various uncontrolled changes, have to be watched and mentioned. To do that i`m using seo-crawlers, for example - well known Screaming Frog, or specialised tools as Seo Alerts.
