Google seems to have heard about the confusion with the namings of the broad core algorithm update from March 12 and they want to make sure they clear things up. On Twitter, Google said, “Our name for this update is March 2019 Core Update.”
This is fairly unusual since Google doesn’t typically give names to updates. But, in this case, Google said, “We think this helps avoid confusion; it tells you the type of update it was and when it happened.” Naming it the March 2019 Core Update was what the company did to hopefully help avoid confusion.
Here is the tweet from Google earlier this morning with the new name:
We understand it can be useful to some for updates to have names. Our name for this update is “March 2019 Core Update.” We think this helps avoid confusion; it tells you the type of update it was and when it happened.
