Impact of Google core update August 2023 on my blogs
Hello fellow bloggers, The August 2023 core update finished rolled out completely. In this article, I will share the effect of this core update on my multiple blogs.
If you read my blogs regularly you might know that I run multiple blogs and I keep updating the earning report as well as my traffic report.
I generally do not write on core updates as it comes almost 2 times or 3 times every year. But I am writing about it for the first time as this core update is completely different from others.
What to do and what not to do after a core update is almost the same as all the core updates. The core update is like a roller coaster to me as it really impacts a lot of businesses massively.

Effect or impact of August 2023 Google Core update on my blogs
This core update started on the 22nd of August. But I was not aware of that. I did not notice any traffic changes from the Google search engine during the first week. But on the 2nd of September, All of a sudden I kept losing almost 15% of traffic every hour. (I check my traffic on an hourly basis and I am aware of the fact that in which hour how much traffic is normal for my blog).
I compare my traffic (organic) to the previous week of the same day.
That was Saturday, and Saturday is a holiday in the corporate world. Thus traffic drop is normal. So I compare the traffic with the previous Saturday.
(My blogging niche is computer programming)
But you won’t believe me, but the traffic recovered within a few hours. From the next day the traffic same as it was before the core update.
The most interesting part is that even after the core update rolled out completely, I did not notice any traffic change.
Neither it increased nor decreased.
For my other blogs, the same thing happened. I did not notice any traffic change.
I would like to make this comment section interesting by getting responses from our beloved bloggers.
