Google said on Monday that it has launched its so-called Farmer update, a new algorithm designed to weed out low-quality content.
With the international rollout, website owners will have a better idea of what Google's algorithm update really means for them.
Google said in a blog post that it has also incorporated user feedback.
"Today we've rolled out this improvement globally to all English-language Google users, and we've also incorporated new user feedback signals to help people find better search results. In some high-confidence situations, we are beginning to incorporate data about the sites that users block into our algorithms. In addition, this change also goes deeper into the 'long tail' of low-quality websites to return higher-quality results where the algorithm might not have been able to make an assessment before," the company said.
