Marie Haynes posted another poll asking SEOs what they saw from the Google November 2021 Core Update now that the update is finished rolling out. Most, like 60% of the SEOs that responded said they saw “no obvious change.”
The poll had over 450 responses, which is less votes that her last poll, but still, I find these polls fun.
Here is the Twitter poll:
How did your site fare overall with the November core update now that it has finished rolling out?
(Redid the poll as I forgot a no change option🤦♀️)
Please comment on what changed in your SERPS if you can.

Here is the breakdown if you remove the “other/see comments”:
- 60% said no obvious change
- 21% said obvious improvement
- 19% said obvious decline
The one point that is needed is that this is a tiny sampling of SEOs and sites that potentially could have been impacted. I assume the true impact is less than 2% of sites in Google’s search results, but that is a wild guess. Finally, if a site was impacted, it will feel huge, like 20 to 90% changes in traffic for the better or worse.
