There are actionable steps you can take to not only recover from these updates but also to prepare for future ones, ensuring your site remains resilient against the ever-changing SEO landscape.

Understanding the Impact
First, it’s crucial to ascertain whether your site has indeed been hit by a Google algorithm update. Tools like Google Analytics, Search Console, and Rank Math's Analytics module can provide insights into your site's SEO performance, pinpointing any significant traffic drops that coincide with known update rollouts.

Analyzing the Affected Content
Once you've confirmed the impact, delve into the type of content affected. Look for patterns in the downward trends—whether it's review articles, informational posts, or guest contributions. This analysis will guide your next steps, whether it involves rebalancing the ratio of review to informational content or enhancing the quality of your reviews to ensure they're genuine and insightful.

Evaluating and Optimizing Content
After identifying the affected content, reassess it to ensure it meets the current search intent and update standards. Update outdated information, improve content quality, and ensure it aligns with what's currently ranking well. Competitive analysis can also offer valuable insights into why certain content is outperforming yours, allowing you to adjust your strategy accordingly.

Addressing Site-wide Quality Issues
If the update has impacted your site more broadly, it's time to evaluate your site's overall quality. This includes scrutinizing the E.A.T. of your content, assessing the quality of your backlinks, and possibly removing or upgrading low-quality or outdated posts. It's essential to also check for any manual actions or security issues via Google Search Console, as these can significantly affect your site's visibility.

Preparing for Future Updates
To safeguard against future algorithm changes, diversify your traffic sources. Building an email list, establishing a YouTube channel, and growing a social media presence can all contribute to a more robust and resilient digital footprint. These channels not only help maintain audience engagement during turbulent times but also strengthen your site's E.A.T. by showcasing your expertise and credibility across various platforms.
 
I like this guide, but the way Google be moving mad. Sometimes I'm tired of recovering, lol. I think they are trying to force us to buy ads to grow. But I'll keep pushing nevertheless, organic traffic feels nicer.

That's what I think is what Google's been doing with new websites, no matter on-site content and optimization, impossible to rank for first couple of months even against no competition.

So far there has not been a single case of recovery from a site being downgraded for quality.
There have been a few cases of successful growth where the entire site was replaced and those sites got a different structure and content line up.

But there has been NO ONE site recovered in the 3+ years that the quality algorithm has been running.

It's actually troubling that there has Been any record of recovery especially for the HCU. Which is unlike most previous update. Does it mean that URLs on a deranked site, entirely get blacklisted by Google?

Google has a ranking system for a site from 10% to 90%.
When a site's ranking drops below 50%, problems begin, but the site can still try to clean itself up and regain some of its position.
When the ranking drops below 30% - there is no way out. Since the rating is lost in large steps (5%-15%) and is gained then for each successful action in increments of 0.1 -1%. I think it will be clear to everyone that you will never be able to gain a rating above 50%.
The site is easier to transfer to a new domain.

I don't know why it showed 100% AI content, I was just parsing this topic on youtube, watched some videos and extracted such information, finally decided to write a post. Nowadays it's hard to tell what's written by a human and what's not. For I've already had cases where text is written by a human and the AI detector says it's AI 100% lol. It's a complicated time we live in:)
 
Oh dear oh dear.... another so called expert trying to make money on BS. Prepare for the future updates? Yeah right, like you know what Google will do haha
