Google’s search liaison Danny Sullivan announced a new core update on Wednesday, called the June 2021 Core Update, adding that we should also expect a July 2021 Core Update next month.
Every few months or so, Google releases a new core algorithm update.
In December 2020, they released the last core update.
Prior to that, it had been seven months since the May 2020 core update, which was released on May 4, 2020.
This update took much longer than previous ones, but we are expecting another one in about a month.
Several of Google’s planned updates for June 2021 are just not ready to be released this month.
Google has decided to roll out those parts that are ready today with the rest coming out next month in the July 2021 core update.
A release date for the core update in July 2021 will be announced by Google.
“Of course, any core update can produce drops or gains for some content. Because of the two-part nature of this release, it’s possible a very small slice of content might see changes in June that reverse in July,” Google said.
What can we expect?
Whenever Google updates its algorithm, your ranking may jump, may fall, or may remain the same.
You may be able to reverse the effects of the June 2021 core update if you were affected.
The company says the updates won’t be noticeable by most sites, but search engine optimization specialists who manage a lot of websites will likely notice a lot of changes.
In addition, since this is a two-part release, some content and sites may see changes in June 2021 that reverse in July 2021.
Approximately two weeks will be needed to roll out the update global, affecting all languages.
After the rollout is complete, Google will confirm when the update will be complete.
The page experience update is slated for mid-June.
Google said in a tweet: “later today, we are releasing a broad core update, as we do several times per year.
It is called the June 2021 Core Update.”
Google constant updates:
Additionally, Google wrote a blog post to explain how and why it makes these changes to search in June 2021.
According to Google, it “receives billions of queries a day from countries around the world in 150 languages.”
It needs to improve in order to remain competitive and serve its user base.
Google added, “To deliver great results at this scale and complexity, we use many different systems,
and we’re always looking for ways to improve them so that we can show the most relevant results to users.”
The web is growing, sites are changing, content is being published constantly.
As new sites emerge and the web changes, Google said, “continual updates are imperative to ensure that we’re supporting a wide range of publishers, creators, and businesses, while providing the best search experience for users.”
Google’s constantly releases updates because of that.
In any given week, Google may “implement dozens of updates that are meant to improve Search incrementally.”
Because of this, Google’s cannot “share details about all of the updates.”
Google has said it does try to announce major updates like these.
