The Google Core update caused CCN’s Google search traffic to drop by more than 71% overnight, which caused its daily revenue to drop more than 90%.
The popular blockchain and cryptocurrency media CCN recently announced that it is about to close, indicating that Google Core updates have caused CCN’s Google search traffic to drop by more than 71% overnight, which has caused its daily revenue to drop by more than 90%.
It was blunt in the published farewell article: “born on June 5, 2013. He died on June 10, 2019. Death: Google.”
CCN explains in detail the impact of Google on its operations. “Google Core was updated on June 3, 2019, causing CCN’s Google search traffic to drop by more than 71% overnight. Data from SEO analyzer Sistrix shows Our visibility to Google has dropped from 1.2 to less than 0.6.” It said that the previous CCN index was lower, but now its team has added more full-time and part-time employees.
CCN said it does not want to scale down the team and does not want to affect morale. So “this change in Google has had a major impact on our small independent news organization that has never received any external funding.” CCN said its advertising revenue was directly used by the development team, and Google’s update caused its daily income to drop by more than 90%.
It is also said to have tried to find help in the Google Webmaster Forum, but in the end it still has nothing. In addition, according to Sistrix.com, the main blockchain media CoinDesk has a 34.6% reduction in Google’s visibility, and CoinTelegraph’s visibility on Google on mobile devices has dropped by 21.1%.
The move by encrypting media to speculate on Google is to use its monopoly advantage as a traffic portal to suppress the encryption industry. But in fact, after the Google Core update, some traditional industry media also saw a significant drop in Google’s visibility. According to reports, “Daily Mail” (Daily Mail) also faced the same problem to seek help from the Google website. However, it did not receive a satisfactory answer.
