Why onset of Algo rash may occur weeks to months after exposure.
But, do keep in mind:
1) Caffeine
2) Gbots crawl rate upon your own site
3) Any link-related Algo will take even longer, as it must recrawl a substantial number of your inbound links, and some of those are certain to be on less-popular, infrequently-crawled corners of the web
thx +Glenn Gabe for the clip from Google Webmaster Central
Via +John Mueller: Major impact from an algorithm update wouldn't be from recent changes. For larger sites, it can take Google's algorithms a longer time to adjust to site changes. It could take several months to recrawl, reindex, & reprocess the site changes: (at 47:47 in the video)

I. Google spake, saying, go forth, and solicit ALL Reviews.
II. Call forth not only positive Reviews, but every Review that walks, crawls, flies or swims the earth.
III. And it was good.
On Thursday, April 12th, 2018 Google updated their Terms of Service (TOS) for online reviews. Review funnels that attempt to "selectively solicit positive reviews" are now against the revised TOS:

Google is able to better handle higher-quality images in AMP -- so, of course, they are encouraging webmasters to up their game and AMP up their images. This is concurrent with their admonishment to boost favicons to 192X192 pixels. Remember, boys and girls, play nice with Google, and Google may play nice with you.
Google has changed the requirements for the AMP article image specs - so if you want to show up in the top carousel on mobile, you need larger images. Via +Aaron Bradley

SEO changes and grows, but SEOs continue to be among the warmest of marketers. Get an earful! Chat. Participate!
Bill and Ammon's Bogus Hangout is a weekly chat and discussion event. The main crew are #SEO and #marketing folks (of some note) but guests come from all sorts of jobs and interests and our discussions may meander onto all sorts of topics.

The norm for discussion shows is to carefully pick guests and topics. That's where this show is most Bogus. This is a casual chat between interesting people and whoever joins is welcomed. Serendipitous chaos is our USP.

Our habit is to simply throw out a few invitations to guests without much (if any) ado, often without asking them in advance, and simply seeing who is free to turn up.
