Google: We Do Core Search Updates 2-4 Times Per Year; Not Several Times Per Year?

  •   January 15, 2020

Danny Sullivan from Google again said that while Google makes changes in search “each day” the broad core algorithm updates only happen two to four times per year.

Our core updates only happen 2-4 times per year.” This is less than several times per year, which was the previous messaging around core updates.
