Google confirmed that a broad core algorithm update, just titled the ‘January 2020 Core Update’ is turning out today.
Later today, we are releasing a broad core algorithm update, as we do several times per year. It is called the January 2020 Core Update. Our guidance about such updates remains as we’ve covered before. Please see this blog post for more about that:https://t.co/e5ZQUA3RC6

Being an broad core update, the January 2020 core update will affect all search results on an overall scale. It is not an update that objectives something explicit that webmasters can improve upon, similar to the “Speed Update.”
Google’s direction about this update remains the same as past core updates. Google focuses to this blog entry explicitly.
While clarifying how core updates work, my preferred analogy to reference is this one from Google:
“One way to think of how a core update operates is to imagine you made a list of the top 100 movies in 2015. A few years later in 2019, you refresh the list. It’s going to naturally change. Some new and wonderful movies that never existed before will now be candidates for inclusion. You might also reassess some films and realize they deserved a higher place on the list than they had before.”
How about we separate this anaology. If you positioned your top movies several years prior you may have had Goodfellas in the main opening. For contentions purpose suppose The Irishman was a superior film, which turned out a year ago, and now it’s at the main position. Presently Goodfellas has dropped in rankings, however that doesn’t mean it’s an bad film.
As Google says: “The list will change, and movies already higher on the list that descend aren’t terrible. There are simply more deserving movies that are preceding them.”
In light of that, there’s nothing fundamentally amiss with pages that drop in rankings following a core update. They’re simply being reconsidered against content that has been published since the last update, or content that was recently neglected.
Broadly recognizable impacts are to be expected, which may includes drops or gains for search rankings, so focusing on your rankings in the days and weeks to come is central.
If your rankings drop, see what is currently positioning in front of your content and think about how you can give an even more comprehensive solution for searchers.
