Analyzing Google's March 2024 Core Update

May 17, 2024

With the March 2024 Core Update, they also released an entire blog post related to the purpose of the update. Looking at the traditional metrics we generally rely on when assessing a core update, doesn’t do the March 2024 Core Update justice. This trend is confirmed by data shown earlier when comparing the November 2023 Core Update to the March 2024 Core Update. Interestingly though with the March 2024 Core Update, we don’t see a return to what the August Core Update implemented. Another pattern I noticed, is that some of the sites that gained rankings with the November 2023 Core Update, saw those rankings reversed with the March 2024 Core Update:For the record, the March 2024 Core Update didn’t just demote a site’s rankings.
