Tracking the changes or updates regarding Google algorithms can be a time-consuming task. This is because the algorithms undergo thousands of updates or changes per year. Google does not announce the changes to everybody. Therefore, the onus is on each individual to find a way or identify tools with which to keep track of the changes. Keeping track of these alterations is crucial, as they have a direct effect on sales and revenues as well as the profitability of the online business. Here are a few tools which can help you with tracking Google algorithm updates:
