Google’s John Mueller answers if technical issues are not a trigger for core update problems. Recently a question arose over the internet. Whether a significant core update to a site simultaneously with a Google core algorithm update results in the downfall of the website’s ranking? Owners suspect that Google reevaluated the quality during this period. While the issue remained unsolved, this resulted in a degradation of ranking and the traffic.
Google’s John Muller has come wholly and forward and disavows the above statement. Speaking about the core algorithm updates, John advised and offered two updates. About what usually does not trigger a core update-related ranking drop. You can look over this blog – what site owners should know about Google’s core update.
The Core Algorithm Update
Google makes significant adjustments to its search and ranking algorithms a few times a year. Also, it is to enhance the working environment of the websites. Experienced surfers can easily detect these updates. The objectives of bringing up these updates are to ensure the quality of the search results and maintain trust with the users.
In recent years owners of various sites have complained about a significant disturbance to their rankings and user traffic just after the core update. Web pages leading the order instantaneously drop down with low target keywords and vice versa. A core update may affect 5% to 10% of all searches, while a minor update tends to affect 0.1% of all searches. It was noticed that the crashed sites had been there for up to six months.
Without any recovery just after the update. The most important question that arises is, will they have to wait for another core update for Google to reevaluate the site quality? Well, John doesn’t seem to agree to infect; he gives a strong suggestion indeed.
Core Update Uses Data Collected Over Long Terms
Some instantaneous and dramatic changes result from constant long-term problems other than technical issues. John says that “It is important to understand and collect the site’s data over a long term to use relevant information for the core update.”
Technical Issues Are Not The Same As Quality Issues
In his second suggestion, John guides that technical issues won’t cause a core update-related problem (severe conditions are an exception to the owner’s loose hand). Differentiating between technical and quality problems, Muller stated technical errors like broken links. “But they aren’t the cause of the ranking problem after the core update,” says Muller.
Their quality algorithm looks for particular issues other than low-level technical errors, but we aren’t sure. It might be possible your site might be struggling with some technical difficulties due to some changes or snippets. Sooner or later, Google runs its core algorithm update, but in no way could this be a reason for the downfall of your ranking.
According to experts, it requires a long-term collection of data. Since Google’s transparency had always stood in doubt, it might be hard for owners to believe in the assurance. Google will have to provide stronger evidence and transparency to win the owners’ and users’ trust. Hope this has cleared all about technical issues are not a trigger for core update problems.
