Was “Phantom 3” A New Google “Quality Update” To Its Algorithm

There is a lot of buzz going around about Google making a new Quality Update that made some changes to the main Google algorithm, but has not been confirmed by Google. It is currently being called 'Phantom 3' by speculators as it is similar to two other instances where an update has been made that was not confirmed until later. Some people are seeing changes in rankings and don't see any other explanation for the changes. If there was in fact an update, it is unlikely that it is Panda or Penguin related and Google will probably confirm the details about the update at a later time.
