Google May 2020 Core Update

Post by Accrete »

Danny Sullivan (a.k.a. Google SearchLaison on Twitter) announced the Google May 2020 Core Update on Twitter:
Later today, we are releasing a broad core algorithm update, as we do several times per year. It is called the May 2020 Core Update. Our guidance about such updates remains as we’ve covered before.
11:29 AM - 4 May 2020

He then updated the status of this update:
The May 2020 Core Update is now rolling out live. As is typical with these updates, it will typically take about one to two weeks to fully roll out.

Has your site been affected in a big way with the May 2020 Core Update?
...Well, based on just about 30 or so hours, I am seeing tons of site owners complaining about huge ranking drops in the past 24 hours or so.

Again, this started to roll out on May 4th at around 3:50pm ET and Google said it can take up to two weeks to fully roll out. But site owners, publishers, webmasters, SEOs, etc are already seeing the magnitude of this update on their specific sites or client sites...

Google Ranking Algorithm Update Tremors

Post by Accrete »

Are you noticing any changes? or do you think it is the settling of the May 2020 update which ended May 18?
...seeing signs from both the SEO chatter in the community and the tracking tools that the past day or so there may have been a Google search ranking and algorithm update. It might be just tremors or small tweaks to the Google May 2020 core update or it might be something totally unrelated...
