Sistrix has shared some analytics and data and said the big changes can be seen for the YMYL site and there we normally only see a betterment or loss of hardly a few percentage points. As we can examine on the lists, e-commerce, educational as well as dubious automative websites got their share of movement. This update specifically focuses on something that Google will not conform to us and because of this update focus on on the health and medical space, so it has taken on the name the medic update.
