Google January 7th 2020 Algorithm Update


Apparently, there's been a Google update over the past week. Has anybody noticed any changes -- and even better, does anybody know what the update is targeting?

Google search liaison announced a Broad Core Algorithm update on January 13th.

Its rolling out to all data centers world wide.

I have not seen much effect of it yet.

At this time it is not known what if anything it is specifically dealing with or affecting.

I have heard reports that a lot more video will show in SERPs, which makes sense.

More to follow 

Good advice?

From all the info I have been able to collect and from the results of analyzing the websites I manage, these are the observations I have noted.

I have seen no impact on the sites I care for as of yet, but my niche is "Small Business Websites".

I think, but this is just my own opinion, that it's sort of like a refresh of the "Freshness Update".  Like how Penguin would be refreshed every so often.  

Now it occurs to me that they have decided to incorporate this just as how they have incorporated Penguin to run real time. 

Anyone here running sites that are heavy into social media?  It would be interesting to find out if those sites have been impacted.

Good advice?
