It looks like that this Broad Search Algorithm Update is one of the most important and biggest update in the search history, because many of the search engine tracking tools are not picking up these huge changes in the SERP.

I am also seeing many users on other forums, are complaining about SERP fluctuations and ranking drops. I am still not sure that this Broad Search Algorithm Update specifically targeting some spam tactic, a bug, or feature or something else.

I like to share the screenshots of some search engine monitoring tools, showing fluctuations in SERP:
