In the World of Updates, Google Drops Another Bomb
Ah, it seems like just yesterday when we were trying to wrap our heads around Google’s last “improvement” and here we are again! The good folks at Google Search Central just announced they’ve wrapped up the August 2023 core update. Cue the suspenseful music!
Now, according to the always-so-accurate Google Search Status Dashboard, this little update took a casual 16 days and three hours. Someone had their coffee brewing 24/7!
Remember the nostalgia of the last core update in March 2023? Well, Google also decided to sprinkle some minor magic in February and April. They’re just the gift that keeps on giving.
Oh, and for those who love a good plot twist, Google, in a move no one saw coming, updated its Search Central documentation a few days post-launch to declare they now index CSV files. Talk about being spontaneous!
Memo for Website Owners (Yes, This Includes You)
Google, being the ever-supportive friend, decided to remind everyone not to take things too personally. Just because their updates threw a wrench in your website’s performance doesn’t mean your content is the equivalent of a burnt toast. They’re just trying to give users the crème de la crème of content.
Their age-old advice? Focus on quality content. We know, groundbreaking.
But before you rush off to tweak your site hoping to become the next Google darling, remember: changes might not instantly shoot you to stardom. Slow and steady.
And here’s your mantra: Stay updated. Stay visible. And maybe get yourself a platform like Semrush. It’s like having a map in the ever-shifting landscape of Google’s updates.
Stay tuned for the next episode in Google’s never-ending saga of “Let’s keep the web on its toes!”
