It’s that time of year again folks, Google has just announced that it is rolling out a broad core algorithm update. Named the “May 2022 Core Update,” Google announced its release on May 25, 2022, and the roll out process will take roughly one to two weeks to complete.
In typical Google fashion, insights on what this core algorithm update will impact are on the vague side. According to Google, “Core updates are designed to increase the overall relevancy of our search results and make them more helpful and useful for everyone.” Core updates are not intended to affect specific sites, but they typically impact certain industries or areas of search more than others. However, we will not be able to determine what those are until the update has completed rollout, and the data starts rolling in. You can learn more about past Google Algorithm Updates here.
