When you fix the Google News bugs since January 2020. I've sent e-mails many times about this bug. Also, discuss in the Google News forum but they even care about the bug or anything. We need to hear more of our voices for the Google team. 

Thanks for your efforts 

All the best,

Why is there such a big difference in Upvotes on the first post and downvotes on the second post 🤔

On the notes about canonicals or other issues, it's better to start a fresh thread about those. I'd suggest this thread be really specific for comments just about the update.

Hey Danny,

I tried but nobody helped. Because there's no any official guys from Google and it's really a bug. Please spend your 2-3 min and take a look to my examples above.

Just because you don't see a reply doesn't mean there's not someone looking at stuff, forwarding, investigating and so on. Give me a link to where you reported this before, or start a fresh thread and you flag that.

Danny, if we start new thread - its just wanna be next ignoret thread. because on every new thread junior seo specialist's ask so much stupid questions and every time its look like just flood.

we really need more attention for this problem, cauz its really not joke. for 1 website - this team create 1-10 clone, and just drop you. and i can't be protected.

its massive spam on search, and theyr websites drop your websites.

just look on this problem, and wait when it can be possible not only russian google. its realy chaos. we need help.

just try to search in russian google keyword: "1xslots"
6/10 sites from top-10 - clone's (all clones have inside links traffgate.xyz)

if u see deeply u realy can see it. its not original websites.

and this situation not only on this keywords. its huge problem, fix it.

Hey @Alexander Negrash
 
Given that the update started rolling out yesterday, I'd say not, ranking changes can and do happen outside of core updates too.
 
Feel free to start a thread (You can do so by clicking this link) if you want folks to dig in with you.

I have detailed out my experience with Google Update on my site since EAT. This one look negative as well :(

We see that the rating of our site has dropped significantly. Travel (travel agency) topics. Ukraine. Dropped in all positions since 04.12. For example, they were at the 2nd steel at the 8th position, etc. Why is it so sharp? The site is one of the most popular companies with a 20-year history.

From ranking on the 5th position to getting invisible completely, got hit massively. Lets wait for a complete roll out. For now I can see some stupid content ranking on top (sigh)!

Hi @danny, it came to my notice that our rich snippet which used to display is gone off for my website. Where as other sites there rich snippet is still be shown. Our ranking went down compare to other sites our site with high content quality. Even though we update our sites regularly with fresh news on our website compare to other sites.

Yup, there goes all my hard work creating a fresh user friendly and informative site... now replaced with sites with endless google ads and popups... maybe that's the plan, so google makes more money.

Concentrate on quality content they say... but the results show anything but.

40% drop in traffic since the update.

Merry Christmas from Google.
