A rare Google confirmation came related to a Google search algorithm update this week. Google states that there is no way fix your site if it’s impacted negatively.
On Wednesday march 12 Google in a tweet confirmed that they had released a broad core search ranking algorithm update.
“Our guidance about such updates remains as we’ve covered before,” said google.
Google Search Liaison Danny Sullivan confirmed this update started March 12.
Why does this matters?.
As a part of Google’s yearly ranking updates they only confirm a very small percentage of these changes throughout the years. Specifically in this broad core update, google certainly mentiones, like many times that there is nothing specific to do to fix your rankings. Google also says: that “there’s no ‘fix’ for pages that may perform less well other than to remain focused on building great content. Over time, it may be that your content may rise relative to other pages.”
If you’re asking why did my ranking change recently? this might be why! you can blame google broad core algorithm updates as the main reason and not necessarily the changes you made!
What did google change in the broad core update?
As of this moment it is hard to really tell! and it is even harder to guess what has changed. As a result, the word of mouth around the broad core update, it is mainly targeting the Health and Medical fields. although this targeting wasn’t specifically aimed at neither medical nor health sites, with the previous update that took place on August 1st.
Therefore at this moment, we Cann’t confirm which sites are really impacted the most. We will review some data and monitor the situation in order to provide you with the most accurate information. finally we will keep you updated on the topic as soon as we receive further new insights.
what does Google’s have to say about the broad core algorithm update
“Each day, Google usually releases one or more changes designed to improve our results. Some are focused around specific improvements. Some are broad changes. Last week, we released a broad core algorithm update. We do these routinely several times per year.
As with any update, some sites may note drops or gains. There’s nothing wrong with pages that may now perform less well. Instead, it’s that changes to our systems are benefiting pages that were previously under-rewarded.
There’s no “fix” for pages that may perform less well other than to remain focused on building great content. Over time, it may be that your content may rise relative to other pages.”
