    TopRank Marketing drives results with content, influencer, SEO & social media marketing.

    Matt Cutts clarifies what SEOs are calling the “Gilligan” update that’s been happening with Google over the past few days on his blog.

    What shows as Page Rank and back links now, is data that has already been factored into current rankings. He clarifies that a real update is when Google makes algorithm changes.

    “Technically Update Gilligan is just backlink/PageRank data becoming visible once more, not a real update. There haven‚Äôt been any substantial algorithmic changes in our scoring in the last few days.”

    Even with commentary like this from Google, lots of people will still spend lots of time analyzing every little change with Google. Just as fun as looking for Bigfoot, Elvis and Aliens from outer space. Or not.
