A week ago, Google had one of its biggest updates to date. The Google March core update had SEO specialists, spamming LinkedIn with posts. Some even have labeled the latest Google Update as “Google Armageddon”.  This update caused hundreds of websites to be no longer indexed. There was one thing in common on these pages. The use of AI, to create content. 

Some of the pages even had more than a million visitors a month. Because of one update, their websites were completely taken off the face of the earth. 

One such website was lovethemaldives.com. A travel website that had more than 700,000 visitors just a couple of months back, can now no longer be found on Google. All because of the use of AI in their posts and content.
