Google May 2020 Core Update

Google has finished rolling out the Google May 2020 core update yesterday. Google posted about this yesterday, May 18, 2020 at 12:37pm ET. That makes for a full-two week roll out, which began on May 4, 2020 in the afternoon.

Here are the tweets from Google on when it first started rolling out and when it finished:

Of course, it may have finished sooner. Truth be told, anyone who saw a positive or negative impact by this update would have known over a week ago. Trust me, I know. But Google was kind enough to put a timestamp on this rollout, saying it is now done rolling out.

Make no mistake, the Google May 2020 core update was a big one in many ways. Anyone who felt it would agree.
