The June 2019 Google Core Update


The good, the bad, the ugly about Google’s latest core algorithm update.

On June 2nd, Google’s public liaison of search, Danny Sullivan, tweeted that users could expect a broad core algorithm update that would be rolling out to various data centers in the coming days.



That algorithm change finally finished rolling out on June 8th. While it’s still early to see the full impact of this update, companies like The Daily Mail and CCN have already seen dramatic drops in their traffic.  

Various news sites and SEO blogs have also covered different angles of the update, like this article from Search Engine Journal on how this change affects thinking about ranking strategies like E-A-T (expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness).

Obviously, a drop in traffic to a site can be a death knell, like it was for CCN. But it remains to be seen if this site is indicative of a larger phenomenon to come.
