Penguin 4.0 – The Game Goes Bigger!

The SEO game has gone bigger with Penguin 4.0.  Google officially announced the release of real time Penguin 4.0 as part of their core algorithm.

The roll out has been completed and here are our take away from it.

Real Time:

Penguin used to come and go every three month. So if somebody lost rankings in an update, he has to wait for next penguin update to get back the rankings.

So it was a slow process to get the rankings back.

With Penguin 4.0 going real time, You can lose the ranking a day and next time when Google crawls your site, it can come back as well. so process is pretty faster now.

More Granular:

Normally Penguin used to hit a whole site. But with Penguin 4.0, it can be page specific. so instead of getting a side wide penalty, it can be limited to specific page or sub folder. So this is something good for huge site owners specially E-Commerce sites.
