Google Rolls Out June 2019 Core Update
As it warned on Sunday, Google has launched the June 2019 algorithm update. That update is now rolling out according to an update from Google.
At 1:02pm ET, Google wrote “The June 2019 Core Update is now live and rolling out to our various data centers over the coming days.”
For those asking, the June 2019 Core Update has not gone live yet. This thread will be updated when that process has begun.

Why pre-announce this Core update? Since the community has been asking Google to be more proactive when it comes to changes they were inspirted to help us out a bit. Danny Sullivan, Google search liason, said there is nothing specifically “big” about this update compared to previous updates. Google is being proactive about notifying site owners and SEOs, Sullivan said, so people aren’t left “scratching their heads after-the-fact.”
Well, other than the Page Speed Update and the Mobile Interstitial Penalty Update you don't see Google “pre-announcing” stuff often. Must be big. https://t.co/QwuyWB2P4o

Google’s previous advice.
Google has previously shared this advice around broad core algorithm updates:
“Each day, Google usually releases one or more changes designed to improve our results. Some are focused around specific improvements. Some are broad changes. Last week, we released a broad core algorithm update. We do these routinely several times per year.
What can you take for certain from the above statement? Well, expect some sites to note drops or gains, or both. There’s nothing wrong with pages that may now perform less well. Instead, it’s that changes to our systems are benefiting pages that were previously under-rewarded.
Again, it's super important to understand that for Google Core there is no ‘fix’ for pages that may perform less well other than to remain focused on building great content. Over time, it may be that your content may rise relative to other pages.”
