Is the new Google Core Algorithm update a nightmare for the SEO community?
So on December 3rd, 2020 Google verified a core algorithm update and since then all the wannabe SEO’s are going loons. Okay, let me break this ice to you. An updated Core Algorithm means that the main algorithm itself has been revamped in some way. This could include changing how certain existing ranking factors were weighted against one another, or how they interact with one another, or how they form a cohesive whole. The real question is why should you care about it?
Content creation and SEO specialists are gaining acknowledgment as the world is gradually turning online. These professionals are excited also the Google’s new core algorithm update. This update might be so minimal and nearly invisible to the naked eye But for the world’s biggest search engine, small changes can make a big difference to people who rely on their search engine results pages (SERPs) to generate leads. These updates are not something out of the blue, they keep happening all the time, and being aware and keeping a track of it gives a good head start for the future SEO aspirants.
First things first, what’s a Core Algorithm Update?
There’s so much to Cote Algorithm Updates than just some minor adjustments. In simpler words, this is a change to the fundamental algorithm that powers the Google search engine.
Is this a Core Update nightmare for SEOs?
One thing is sure that even though it’s a slight shift it will lead to a noticeable impact. Though the SEO community’s reaction to the update was quite sad and disappointing with a sheer tone of anxiety and anger. One of them tweeted saying, ”All I need for 2020 to get worse is for Google to tank my sites... If they do I am going to just get a job a the local supermarket and be done with SEO haha”
Sites that have indeed been constantly working towards improving their rankings may see a reversal of fortunes, so to speak.
