SEO NBC reports that an undisclosed, “phantom” algorithm update is specifically targeting informational and “how-to” based content.

Google hasn’t officially commented on it yet, but initial reports are suggesting that this latest algorithm update is specifically targeting websites with “how-to” content. HubPages, eHow,, and WikiHow, have seen significant drops in traffic and ranking positions. 

According to one estimate, HubPages’ organic traffic from Google has dropped by 22%.

Through analyzing the data, Gabe has determined that this udpdate is not related to Panda or Penguin. However, similar types of “thin” content targeted by Panda are also being targeted by this update.

But The funny thing is that Google has yet to acknowledge the existence of such a new update.

Final Words

As you know, Google’s Knowledge Graph has already been posing certain difficulties to content publishers. Now, with this latest “Phantom” update, things are only going to become more difficult for content publishers.

Let’s see when Google acknowledges this update. We will let you know more about it as soon as we can. Stay tuned!
