Dearest Google,

We love you, but also, sometimes you’re THE. WORST.

It’s like, we all know we need you, but why you gotta be so mean…

Just when we think we have a handle on it, you change it up on us again.

Learn more about what’s going on this week and what you can do to combat any traffic or ranking drops in the search results. Don’t miss out, and stay ahead of the game!

Hey Guys! If you haven’t heard yet, Google just released a major algorithm update on Monday, June 3! And don’t panic, but A LOT of sites are already seeing an impact. The Daily Mail actually saw over a 40% DROP in organic search traffic! Yikes.

So what does it all mean?!

Well… for one, this is no tiny update that you can just ignore. It’s so big, in fact, that in the spirit of being transparent, Google actually announced that they were about to release a core update.

This doesn’t usually happen, so we know it’s serious.

But here’s the thing… that’s not the only thing changing in the search results right now!

On June 5, Google also dropped a little nugget of knowledge that separate from this core update is their Diversity Update… yep… these are all coming at once, so hang with me!

The Diversity Update is a change that’s designed to provide more site diversity in our search results… meaning a single site likely won’t have more than 2 results on the same page for a given query.

And just so you know, subdomains and root domains will be treated as the same site. So buckle up, because things are getting CRAZY in the SEO world.

So how can we overcome all of these changes?

Well, because the biggest change is coming from a “Core Update” which means there is nothing in particular we can “fix.” But here’s what we do know—we know quality content is one of the most important factors when it comes to Google Search Results, and we have you covered.

Fortunately, we just updated our Content Marketing Mastery Course! So take a look and start diving in to learn exactly how to build the right kind of content in 2019.
