Google screwed up reaaaaal bad...
And I mean so bad that a bunch of 'SEOers' I know were running around frantically like hot cakes thinking the world was going to end (LOL)
According to John Muller, The Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google. His twitter account stated that they (Google) didn't have the answer just yet.
"I don't have all the details yet, but it seems like this was a glitch on our side and has been fixed in the meantime. If someone could fix the other 2020-issues, that would be great." -- John Muller
This followed a massive thread of people either freaking out or LOL'ing at the situation.
The official explanation came out the next day. Turns out it was a simple indexing issue that affected the search results which was 'promptly fixed' by Google's Site Reliability Engineers.
An easy shrug off on Google's side, and a massive sigh of relief from every digital marketing agency around the world. You can stop sculling your bottles of Jack now... (if you want 😉)
