Google Penguin Update

Postby smz21 » Tue Sep 27, 2016 5:08 am

Penguin 4.0 is now live.

Google has officially confirmed on the Google webmaster blog that they've began rolling out the Penguin 4.0 real time algorithm. It has been just under two years since we had a confirmed Penguin update, which we named Penguin 3.0 in October 2014 and this will be the last time Google confirms a Penguin update again. We saw signals yesterday that Google began testing Penguin 4.0, Google wouldn't confirm if those signals were related to this Penguin 4.0 launch announcement this morning but nevertheless, we are live now with Penguin 4.0.

Penguin 4.0 is the real time update for Google. With this change, Penguin's data is refreshed in real time, so changes will be visible much faster, typically taking effect shortly after we recrawl and reindex a page. It also means we're not going to comment on future refreshes.

Penguin 4.0, dubbed the ‘real time update’, has targeted over-optimized sites. Over-optimization is two-fold. Firstly, when there is an overuse of keywords that are unnaturally placed, second is the over optimization of link profiles, so if you have too many links from external sites pointing to the same keywords on your page, it’s time to update your disavow file before you get penalized.

Google launched the Penguin Update in April 2012 to better catch sites deemed to be spamming its search results, in particular those doing so by buying links or obtaining them through link networks designed primarily to boost Google rankings.
