The One Where We Discuss Google’s December 2020 Core Algorithm Update

Google decided to give the SEO community a wonderful early Christmas present this year and decided to hit us with a core algorithm update on Thursday 3rd December.

Thanks Google and a very merry Christmas to you too! ;)

Hannah and Sarah discuss what we know about the core update so far, discussing trends, what the SERPs are looking like and who the biggest winners and losers are.

They also discuss what is being said within the community, including what SEOs and webmasters have experienced since the update and what SEO tools are noticing from monitoring the situation.

If you feel like you may have been hit by the update, don’t fret, as Hannah and Sarah also give actionable advice and tips on what to do after Google has rolled out a core update.

Of course there is a feature and this week Hannah and Sarah go head to head! Also, quickfire question rounds are usually saved for guests, however, this week Sarah decides to put Hannah in the hot seat.

Profile picture for Sarah McDowell
I've been in Digital Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for around 10 years, currently working as the SEO Manager at Captivate (part of Global), the world's only growth-orientated podcast host. I am a self-confessed SEO nerd (I find the industry fascinated and love learning how search engines like Google work) and a bit of a podcast addict (with this being the fourth podcast I have hosted). I am also a speaker and trainer. I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Seriously Excited about Optimisations (is this not my online dating profile?). I love everything SEO, especially a good SEO analogy. SEO Manager by day, at the weekends, when I’m not with Sarah in our podcasting and SEO bubble, you’ll probably find me (literally) with my head in the clouds, up a mountain - with my husband Dom (who hopefully ignores the bit about a dating profile). Cat mum, vegan baker and aspiring photographer in what’s left of my spare time ✌🏻
