Google launched a massive algorithm update between March 12th & 14th. Because it was a broad core update, Google came out to confirm that they have indeed launched it and called it ‘March 2019 core update’. Many SEOs also named it ‘Florida 2 update’.
None of our client’s websites were affected by this update! As per observations from other sources, the sites that were hit by the August 2018 core update soon recovered from it. Seems like Google rewarded them for adding quality content, building high-quality Google-friendly links, and improving the user experience.
While some sites enjoyed the reward, others got punished. It may be because of the thin content present on the site and lack of basic on-page SEO factors.
Although the March update affected many industries, “Your Money Your Life” industry was hit the hardest. If you are wondering what exactly is “Your Money Your Life”, here’s a brief explanation: Websites asking for personal information, such as identification numbers, bank account numbers, driver’s license numbers, etc., which could be used for identity theft, such as:
Websites used for monetary transactions.
Websites offering medical or health information.
Websites offering advice on major life decisions.
Websites offering advice on major life issues.
