On May 25th 2022, Google rolled out its May Core Update, and here’s everything we know so far.
Core updates are global, affecting all countries and all languages, targeting all types of content. They are rolled out to promote or reward great web pages. They also affect all Google features.
Google doesn’t announce what gets changed or affected, however, SEO experts from around the world do their best to find the changes.
Here’s what Google says: “Core updates are changes we make to improve Search overall and keep pace with the changing nature of the web.
