SISTRIX Publishes Its Own Google Updates History Page

sistrixSISTRIX, a German-based SEO tools company, launched a Google Updates history page where you can track all the major Google updates in one place.

SEOmoz published and maintains a very similar list over here as well.

Both provide date information, with the name or type of the update that was believed to have happened. SISTRIX will also link to more details, when they have it, from studies they’ve published about the update. SEOmoz will also do something similar but they also link to outside sources with more details about those updates.

One thing this tool does that none other do is the ability to plug in your own URL and the tool will tell you how your site did after the update. For example, you can see the slight improvement this site had after a specific Penguin update:


Of course, there are plenty of places to track Google updates in text form and a less graphical way. Over here at Search Engine Land you can see all the Panda updates, Penguin updates, EMD updates, Pirate updates and Top Heavy updates as well as many more. And I publish almost every little change at the Search Engine Roundtable in the Google updates category.

Having these more graphical looks at Google updates that are maintain by the SEO toolset provides often comes in handy for many SEOs.

    The sistrix site actually does quite a bit more if you play around with it. It looks like you can input a url and it will check that url’s organic visibility % change (according to sitrix’s database) for each of the Google updates. Awesome idea!

    I would LOVE to see a tool that does this for the US market. That could be extremely helpful. All you geeky devs out there… I see some late night coding happening for you. GET TO IT! :)

    it’s a cool way to visualize, among the other sites which offer similar insights. It appears the fluctuations for any given domain are only for the German market though… still a nice piece of insight for global sites looking at the DE region.

    “One thing this tool does that none other do is the ability to plug in your own URL and the tool will tell you how your site did after the update.” – I’m trying to do this with my sites but I cannot see the desired result. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Can anyone please help me out with this.

    I also love the toolbox SISTRIX is affering.
