The Google Core Update took the team about five-days to roll out. They began Monday, June 3, and finished up on Saturday, June 8. These updates take time to roll out due to Google’s myriad servers and data centers around the world. For an update of this size, five days actually isn’t that long of a wait. We’ve compiled a list of FAQs that will help you sort out what you need to know from the recent Google Core Update.
So, Were There Any Hiccups?
There was early data presented regarding the size of the update as it was still rolling out. Large publications like Daily Mail stated publicly how badly the update affected them. Google hasn’t released any data on how big of an impact the updates made like they did previously with the Penguin and Panda updates. However, Google did say they announce these core updates because they are noticeable.
The Google Core Update did overlap with the diversity update. On June 3, the Core Update began and lasted through June 8. While the Diversity update started June 4 and ended on June 6.
How Will This Affect My Business?
When Google releases large updates, it’s important to note when they began and when they ended. If you notice website traffic increases or decreases in your analytics, knowing the timestamps of the updates allows you to track if your website was affected by a specific algorithm update, technical issue or a separate issue that is completely unrelated. Overlapping updates make it a little more difficult to judge a website’s impact; but if you work with a good SEO, you should still be able to get accurate data.
