Most SEOs Say They Were Negatively Impacted By A Google Core Update

Marie Haynes posted another Twitter poll asking has your site ever been negatively affected by a Google core update? With 266 votes in, which is not a huge number, it shows that most SEOs have been negatively affected by a Google core update.

If you remove the “other/see results” section, the results break down into:

  • 71% – Yes, negatively impacted by a Google core update
  • 15% – No, not negatively impacted by a Google core update
  • 13% – Maybe negatively impacted by a Google core update

If you take the maybes as a yes, then it is as high as 84% were negatively impacted by a Google core update.

Here is the original poll:
