Fast impact of Algorithm updates on sites while technical charges take a while

Google’s John Mueller declared in a hangout with webmasters that if a website sees a significant drop in a day in Google ranking, then this is because of change in Google's search ranking algorithm

So, if you have made a change to how your URLs work and Google has to pick up all those 301s, then the process will be slow, and your ranking will fluctuate over a longer period.

But, this is just a generalisation, not all the websites technical changes take an extended period of time. If you happen to block the entire site from google, then the process can be quick.
