In the ever-evolving landscape of online search, Google's October 2023 core update is rolling out, with the anticipated full implementation taking up to two weeks. Notably, this marks the third core algorithm adjustment in 2023.
Google has officially confirmed the deployment of its latest core algorithm update, dubbed the “October 2023 Core Update.” This release is the third core update to the Google Search ranking algorithms this year, with prior 2023 updates occurring between March 15 and 28 and August 22 through September 7. Consistent with past core updates, the full rollout may extend over several weeks, and search ranking fluctuations are expected during this transitional period. Additionally, Google has officially confirmed that this new update applies internationally and to all languages, mirroring the precedent set by previous core updates.
Google announced the update rollout on October 5th via X (formerly Twitter).

Google also updated its search status page.
John Mueller, who coordinates Google Search Relations efforts as a Search Advocate, described it as a “new core update” rather than a continuation of or change to a previous update.
It's a new core update.

The exact implications of John’s tweet will remain uncertain until the update has been finalized, and we can observe its effects on website rankings and visibility in search engine results pages.
Dealing With a Broad Core Update: Best Practices
As discussed in previous posts, dealing with a broad core algorithm update from search engines like Google can be challenging. However, Google offers guidance for managing potential negative impacts resulting from a core update.
If you notice a decline in your website rankings, it may not necessarily signal underlying issues with your web pages. Google’s list of questions and advice can be a valuable resource and reference for addressing any concerns that may arise from your ranking changes.
