What is a core update?

This is the second core update for 2020. Core updates don’t target anything specific. Overall, this update is to improve Google’s algorithm systems.

What can I expect from this core update?

Much like the last core algorithm update, here is a list on what to expect.

  • Widely notable effects (drops or gains) on search rankings.
  • Pages that drop in rankings aren’t being penalized, they are being reassessed against other web content.
  • Continue to focus on providing the best content for your company.

Knowing when Google updates their core algorithm gives us something to look for if it had to do with a change on your website or something Google changed. This week, we know Google released a core ranking update so we are monitoring for updates and will make recommendations if necessary.
