What happens when a search engine updates?

Search engines have to update too – they update their algorithms and refresh their data.

How does this affect us though? People with websites need to keep updated with search engines and their current dataset.

Here is a useful tool on ‘SEO Chat’ to check to see if a search engine is currently being updated:

“SEO Tools – Multiple Data Center Google Search

This tool searches for your keyword/phrase in different Google data centers. There are many different Google data centers. Each of these may respond with different results for the same search query. If you see results that vary from data center to data center, it means that Google is in the process of updating its index.”
