Google Confirms Core Algorithm Update
Google confirms a core algorithm update is starting to roll out on December 3, 2020.
This is the third core algorithm update of the calendar year. A fair amount of time has passed since the last core update, compared to the average time between these types of updates updates.
The last core update rolled out on May 4th.
It’s likely the pandemic delayed the rollout of Google’s next core update. As more time than usual has passed, could that mean the impact of today’s update will be more impactful?
We won’t know the answer to that today, or even tomorrow, as the rollout process of a core update can take weeks.
Expect Google to publish tweet when the update officially starts rolling out later today, and another tweet some days later when the rollout is complete.
One thing that’s certain is there will be a noticeable impact. Broad core updates are designed to produce widely noticeable effects across search results in all countries in all languages
