Google's Danny Sullivan has confirmed that the core algorithm update of google is rolling out May 4 2020, and  Google has come up with another major core update. The previous core update was in January 2020. It was called - "January 2020 Core Update". This is the first major update of 2020  Since COVID-19. 

Google updates something every day, and If you use the Accuranker tool, you will see search results and positions are grumpy every day.

The core algorithm update means they've upgraded some of the major parts of Google's entire Algo system. As we occasionally get small algorithm updates from Google every few days, these core algorithm updates are much more extensive and more substantial than those.

Google brings some updates almost every day but does not publish them publicly. When a major core update comes along, google tweets and update their webmaster blog to lets everyone know. Once again, Google tweeted about its core update. This update has had a devastating effect on all the websites in the world. Most of the world's Biggest websites have lost their rankings as a result of this update.

Google has given priority to new websites. For the convenience of the readers, Google is continuously bringing some updates. It contains some updates that have a devastating effect on all the websites in the world.

This time the core update is a lot like that. Since the night of May 4, many websites have started losing their rankings, and many sites that were not ranked so far have started coming up in new ranks. Some websites have lost more than 90% of their traffic in just a day or two.

If you have lost your Google rank, find out how to regain that rank: 

  • If you have any copyrighted content or copyrighted images on your website, you are more likely to lose your rank.
  • If you haven't updated your article in a long time, your site may go down.

With an example, Google said that the article that was ranked as the best movie of 2015 is unlikely to be ranked in 2020.

Because by 2020, many more popular movies have come.

  • Even if you use excessive ads on your website, you may lose your Google rank.
  • The title headings and sub-headings of your article should all be related to each other.
  • Your website should not have any spam backlinks.
  • The internal links inside the article should be done very nicely.
  • Make sure your website is mobile-friendly.
  • If your website has a grammatical or spelling mistake, then you must lose your ranking.
  • If you build your site on a specific topic, you are less likely to lose your rank.

Don't worry about Google Core updates.

Please don't worry if your website visitors are declining even after everything is fine. After a few days, your visitors will start coming back slowly.

When Google comes up with a new core update, initially all the websites are less affected, but those who have done well so far, it takes very little time to get their traffic back.

So if you have done genuine work so far, then you don't need to worry, even if you lose your website visitors temporarily your visitors will start coming back in a few days. You will definitely get your Google ranking back.

What is Google Algorithm?

Google's algorithm is a complex process by which Google searches for various information from the online web and stores it in the Google index. When someone searches by typing something into the Google search engine, it returns the best possible results immediately from its index.

Simply put, an algorithm is a set of codes or principles by which Google does all its work correctly.

In other words, the Google algorithm is a way in which Google decides that a result will be shown earlier in the search engine results pages (SERPs).

For example, let's say you have a website where you write about a DOG (dog). You wrote a post about "Best Dog Food". Your post is on page 5 of Google. But another website has published an article with the same topic "Best Dog Food", and it is in the 1st result of the 1st page of Google.

There are various processes or factors behind placing your website on page 5 and other sites at number 1, which is known as Google algorithm.

If you think that this is the only way the algorithm works, then you are a little misunderstood. Google has many algorithms, and each algorithm works differently. Someone is working on search; someone is working on ranking, someone is working on indexing, that is a specific algorithm for a specific job.

​Why Google Update Their algorithm?

Google always wants to show its visitors accurate and relevant results. That's why they go through an update process all the time. So it can be said that Google updates its algorithm to keep accurate and relevant results in the search results.

There was a time when it was very easy to rank a website on Google. The site could be ranked with spammy links with content by keyword stuffing. But after the Panda (algorithm) update, Google left the quality content in the search results and sent the low-quality content below the search results. So that the visitor always finds the best result.

Some of Google's core algorithms and their functions:

There is no accurate information on the total number of algorithms Google has. However, the idea is that the number is not less than 100. You might be surprised to hear that Google brings big and small updates to the algorithm 500-600 times every year. But not all of them are significant updates. Let's not know about some of Google's core algorithms and how they work.

What do you do with Google Algorithm Update?

When the Google algorithm is updated, all the site owners are a little worried, because, at this time, the ranking of the website can be good or bad. So let's not know what to do during the Google algorithm update?

First of all, make sure you know when the Google Algorithm Update will be released, because you need to know this day. You can keep an eye on the Google Webmaster Help Community to get the latest information on this update. When you are sure of the date of the update, do not make any new changes to your site for a few days before that date.

Notice the daily visitor and keyword rankings in the regular Google Search Console and Google Analytics a week before the updated date. In this way, notice the traffic data of one week before the update and 2-3 weeks after the update. And it is better not to make any big changes on the web site at this time.

Google Core updates to give its visitors a better experience. Google never wants to be shown anything other than what its visitors are searching for.

For this reason, Google has started giving priority to new websites, giving priority to those websites that have done well so far but have not been able to bring rank in Google.

So if your article is of good quality, then your ranking will be temporarily down, but your ranking will take very little time to back up.

Google's ranking for the Coronavirus has been in the works for some time, which has been made clear by Google's May 4, 2020 core update. Google brings these core updates so that people can find good sites first and find the perfect info quickly after doing some search.

There is nothing to worry about here. Don't just panic. Continue Your SEO Strategy, as usual.
