What you need to know about google this 2020

The 4 of May, Google started to implement a major update to its algorithm. They call it an update “central” because it is a big change in your algorithm, which means it affects many sites.

The graph tracks Google daily and when it shows green or blue for the day, means there is not much movement. But when things turn red, means there is volatility in the rankings.

Now the real question is, What happened to your traffic?

If you have not already done so, you should go and check your ranking to see if they have gone up or down. If you are not following your ranking.

You must also log into your Google Analytics account and check what happens to your traffic..

Hopefully, your traffic has increased. If that is not the case, do not panic. I have information that will help you.

First, Let's start with the industries that have been most affected.

So, Which industries were affected?

the trips, the real estate, health, pets and animals, and people and society experienced the greatest fluctuations with the rankings.

There was also a jolt in local SEO results , but that started before the main update.

A great misconception that I hear from people new to SEO is that if you have high domain authority or domain score, you will continually get more traffic and will not be affected by updates. That is false.

To give you an idea, here are some known sites that saw their rankings drop:

  • Spotify.com
  • Creditkarma.com
  • LinkedIn.com
  • Legoland.com
  • Nypost.com
  • Ny.gov
  • Burlington.com
