Penguin continues to attack sites that use low-quality "link building" tactics. The days when it was necessary (or even desirable) to acquire massive numbers of links are rapidly coming to a close.

"Pigeon" is the name some industry experts have assigned to a recent update to Google Local's ranking factors. It only affects Local search, not the main organic search results.

For Pigeon, there have been some impacts on local businesses--especially where there were the "7 pack" of local search results showing up and now they're not. Certain keywords were "hit", and don't show the 7 pack anymore.

It also looks like some of the "local" map boundaries have been changed for certain keywords. For example in Dallas, many of the Dallas kewyords were only showing local sites literally in the city of Dallas. But now the suburbs are included, so the sites have more competition now.

Pengiun really hasn't been updated since last October, nearly 11.5 months ago. So we're still waiting on an update. If your site was hit but Penguin, then you need to wait until there is another update. You should be cleaning up your low quality links to your site, though.

In order to monitor your website backlinks or to identify low quality or irrelevant links, you can use Ahrefs. If you consider any backlink that might hurt your website rankings, you can Disavow it by using the Google Disavow tool. But your first option should be sending a request via email to the concerned webmaster for removing backlink. If this attempt proves to be unsuccessful, then you can opt for this tool.

disavow tool is really a bad option to get tracked by google to not index your required links that you think are low quality, manual work is much better.
