Here goes the summary of the update:

1.Penguin Goes Real-Time

Being a filter designed to capture the sites that are spamming, this new update is going to make Penguin faster enough to offer real-time results. Earlier, penguin needed to be refreshed for taking Google’s algorithm in action but with this new update, the things have completely changed now. This update will help penguin refresh the data in real-time. This will make the changes visible in a short span of time.

2.Penguin Becomes More Granular Now

With this latest update, Penguin is now going to devalue spam by bringing an adjustment in the ranking that is based on spam signal. There will not be any effect on the ranking of the entire website. This makes the new penguin update more granular and more specific to be used for spam filtering.

This latest real-time Penguin update might take couples of weeks to fully roll out and to get alive completely. However, the update was one among the 200 others that were introduced recently by the Google on a range of other algorithm. Additionally, the update seems promising and will bring more visibility to the ways spam filters were working.

    Well, I have been trying out to understand Google Panda and Penguin, by reading more and more and this is helping me a lot. I know Google Panda is all about Quality Content.

    Although, It would take some time for me to understand, How to avoid any penalty from Google Penguin. It is bit complicated for me, they say, Only natural links are safe, but After reading articles, including this one, i get bit confused.

    Anyways, Will try experimenting a bit.

    Thanks and Regards,
