Google officially said that it had been rolling out a major Broad Core algorithm update for Search. Google disclosed this in many Tweets by Google SearchLiaison which can be found below.
@dannysullivan How long do you anticipate this broad algorithm to take to settle out. It would be great to get an approximate idea of what my rankings will actually look like after so much fluctuation. TIA

Google’s August “Broad Core Algorithm Update” was noticed by many websites and Web Masters earlier in this first week. Google says this needs no ‘fix’ for the websites those hurt by this update. But it suggests building Quality content in the websites those impacted in the good or bad way.
This week we released a broad core algorithm update, as we do several times per year. Our guidance about such updates remains the same as in March, as we covered here: https://t.co/uPlEdSLHoX

As fiksid also noticed this algorithm update, the main aim of Google’s updates is to improve Quality in Search Results provided to Searchers. Google makes at least one or two changes in the algorithm every day.
Here in this August Update, Google advices to webmasters not to make any Technical Changes to their websites rather Building better-quality content and experiences to website visitors. The company said there is “no fix” required and that it is aimed at promoting sites that were once undervalued.
It seemed to take few more days to fully roll out and to see how this completely affected your website ranking in Google.
