4th May 2020 Core Update

4th May 2020 Core Update

Just because there’s a global pandemic going on doesn’t mean the wheels don’t keep turning at Google.

Today (4th May) Google has announced it is rolling out its new core algorithm update, the “May 2020 core update”. This is the second core update of the 2020 year, the first one was the January 2020 core update.

Historically, Google releases its core Google algorithm update every few months or so. So this looks like a planned update.

Google said “Later today, we are releasing a broad core algorithm update, as we do several times per year. It is called the May 2020 Core Update. Our guidance about such updates remains as we’ve covered before.”

Like the tweet mentions above, the new broad core update is rolling out now and it typically takes a week or two to be fully rolled out.

It’s very early in the day to know what the objective was for this update and how many people it will effect, but I’m sure there will be plenty of SEO’s surmising. As with all core updates, Google reminds people that guidance about the update remains the same and links to the article they posted back in 2019 on the Google Webmaster Central Blog.

We will keep an eye open for any updates on this and will amend this post.

Have you seen any drops in traffic since the update? Lets us know.

Let the force be with you.
