The Fourth Google Update for 2023 Finished Rolling Out
The rollout for Google’s fourth core update of the year is complete. The recent Google Updates 2023 started on November 2 and finished on the 28th. That’s 26 days after the initial rollout.
The November update came a few weeks after the October core update. The October update was faster. It rolled out on October 5 and finished on October 19.
The latest update felt massive. Especially when one checks the ranking volatility of various sites. There were quite a few complaints about SEOs after the rollout. But that’s par for the course when it comes to core updates. What was different was how swift site owners felt the update’s impact.
It’s interesting to note that Google’s review update for November started on November 8. So there was some overlap between the two updates. But the effects of each update hit sites at different times.
These updates are crucial for all businesses and organizations. The revamped algorithm affects a site’s performance in search rankings. It creates a domino effect on the site’s organic traffic, conversions, and profit. These changes can either be positive or negative.
Website owners must make sure they understand these changes. It’s also important to know when Google will roll out updates. This helps site owners discern if traffic changes are due to the update or the website.
Google has provided some information for site owners. These are things they can consider if they see some negative changes due to core updates. First, Google emphasized that there are no specific actions a site can take to recover. A negative impact on the rankings isn’t a signal that something is wrong with the page. The company also reminded site owners to allow for recovery time between updates.
