The highly competitive online gaming niche has always been independent and developed rapidly only thanks to fair competition in this market. That was until May 2020, when the coronavirus crisis hit website developers with the heavy hand of Google. It was on May 4, 2020 that fair competition left the browser-based mini online games market when Google's web search was updated with "May 2020 Core Update". Apparently, this update affected many niches, but it hit online games especially hard, since after it, for any thematic keyword related to online games, up to 80% of search results are related to Irrelevant answers, and the overwhelming number of online gaming sites, which have been on the market for even more than 10 years, have completely lost their traffic.
