How are you doing this week, we are back with last week’s SEO roundup to fill you in on the latest updates that happened in the SEO realm.

March 2019 Google Core Update

The biggest update this week is the new Core Update from Google on March 12, 2019. Unlike the smaller, regular Google updates, this one was a major update that comes after the last year’s Medic update. Now as this update is still in its raw form there is still not enough data to analyze the websites affected by it.

This time there was a rare confirmation from Google through their twitter account that they have released a new broad core search ranking algorithm update. Here’s the tweet:

Now if you are speculating the effects of March 12 Google Core Update, then we would like to remind you that Google has advised that there is not much you can do to if your pages are not focused on building quality content. It’s very early to make any sense out of this Google Core Update, but still here’s what the search giant has advised SEOs regarding broad core algorithm updates previously:

“Each day, Google usually releases one or more changes designed to improve our results. Some are focused around specific improvements. Some are broad changes. Last week, we released a broad core algorithm update. We do these routinely several times per year.

As with any update, some sites may note drops or gains. There’s nothing wrong with pages that may now perform less well. Instead, it’s that changes to our systems are benefiting pages that were previously under-rewarded.

There’s no “fix” for pages that may perform less well other than to remain focused on building great content. Over time, it may be that your content may rise relative to other pages.”

Furthermore, to prevent any confusions, Google has officially christened this update as the “March 2019 Core update.”

Moving on to the next update, we finally found a credible resource that can teach us about JavaScript SEO so that we can make our content more discoverable.

A video from Google’s Martin Splitt is made available which is part of their JavaScript SEO learning series. This one shares insights and tips for doing SEO for JavaScript-based websites and web apps. As the first video of the series, it discusses the complex aspects of JavaScript and search by unravelling technical details.
