What is core update recovery?

Core Update Recovery is the process of regaining visibility and traffic after a Google core update negatively impacts your site. The recovery is about adjusting to the new search environment.

Although core updates are almost always pre-announced by Google, the purpose of each update remains a mystery. 

This is why core update recovery starts with a comprehensive website review. You can’t limit yourself to checking just one aspect of your SEO, as you may be overlooking problems in other areas that were the real cause of the traffic decrease.

In a time of crisis following a core update, you may especially need the help of technical SEO specialists to discover bugs and problems you were unaware of.

Core update recovery is a multi-faceted audit and a fresh look at your website’s SEO strategy. It can restore your visibility and unlock your growth for the future.
