We can get that how the newest Google Core Update brings unprecedented SERP volatility to search results. The SEMrush Sensor tool tracks Google on a daily basis.

The chart showing green or blue for a day means that there is a little bit of bent. But when things turn red, it means there is volatility in the rankings. And we can measure relatively high volatility on the 5th and 6th of May.

The travel, real estate, health, pets & animals, and people & society were the industries that are affected most due to the algorithm Update. On the other hand, NEWS sites were the least affected.

If you haven’t checked your rankings if they have gone up or down. You should log into your Google Analytics account and check to see what’s passing to your traffic.

Hopefully! you must have not faced the issue drastically but if you have been then it is not that big dealing as you would be deeming.

As Google explains, these changes to its algorithm in a simple manner as-

“ One way to think of how a core update operates is to imagine you made a list of the top 100 movies in 2015. A few years later in 2019, you refresh the list. It’s going to naturally change. Some new and wonderful movies that never existed before will now be candidates for inclusion. You might also reassess some films and realize they deserved a higher place on the list than they had before. The list will change, and films previously higher on the list that move down aren’t bad. There are simply more deserving films that are coming before them.”

Google has given advice on what to consider if you are negatively impacted by a core update in the past.

There aren’t specific actions to take to recover, and in fact, a negative rankings impact may not signal anything is wrong with your pages. Google’s guidelines on the update remain the same (we recommend you read them).
