It’s more than just Google’s August 1st update (commonly referred to as the “Medic Update”).
While our last big, broad Google-confirmed update dominates current algorithm talk within the SEO community, a series of smaller modifications and algorithmic corrections have followed along.

These largely unconfirmed updates were caught by both community members (shout out to Marie Haynes!) and by algorithm tracking tools including the SEMrush Sensor and Algoroo.
