Default Google Confirmed Penguin Update

On 18th Oct, there was a Penguin update about which Google gave the confirmation. This update can affect a good count of English-US queries.

Its the Google Penguin 3.0 update that was rolled on October 17, 2014 and this is especially design to decrease the websites rankings that has paid links and other link schemes related to the site.

Since the Penguin algorithm has been around for awhile now, a lot of people should be seeing gains by now. That is, if they did the work to clean up their sites and/or stayed away from bad practices. Google means business about this stuff because they just aren't letting up. But like I said, as time goes by, those who cleaned up should start seeing some bounce-back with this updates as they occur.

And with the Panda 4.1 update on the 25th September it has been quite a turbulent few weeks.

As has been said here however, those that made efforts to fix up their sites in response to the earlier Panda and Penguin updates, will be feeling okay right now.

If you didn't it is very likely your traffic has taken another hit. The Big G really is whipping everyone into line.

This update is almost after a year. We can't say when Google will come up again with this update.

Google have said that they will be doing Penguin refreshes more often now. (You are quite right, it has been approximately a year since the last one.)

This means if have been hit by the recent 3.0 you have a chance to sort out your bad link profile now and get reassessed in time for the next update.
