Why is Google MANUALLY Deindexing So Many Sites?

Over the last 10 days, Google has been manually deindexing sites at a higher rate than I've ever seen.

This appears to coincide with some policy changes that Google along with the Google core and spam updates rolling out right now.

They are targeting "scaled content". This could be AI generated content, programmatic content, or even human assisted content done at a mass scale.

According to a study by Originality.ai, 1446 websites out of the 79,000 sites they looked at had been manually deindex.

This news is quite nuanced and so Jared and I sat down yesterday and recorded an episode to chat about it.

Watch...Why is Google MANUALLY Deindexing So Many Sites?

And of course, we share a couple of weird niche sites.
