Google Penguin 4.0 Update-What Is It All About?
The Google Penguin 4.0 Update is now part of the core algorithm of Google. After two years of waiting the Google Penguin is updated.
Penguin today is now real-time. Penguin is a filter that is made to get websites that are spamming in the search results of Google. Because, the spamming systems of Google could not capture it. 2012 was the year when they first introduced penguin. Before, websites that were affected by penguin needed to be refreshed at the same time for a certain period of time. Basically, penguin was created to capture spam websites. These websites will be penalized. Then the next penguin update was in the year 2014. Websites that were captured by the Penguin 3.0 must wait for two years in order to be free. Now, you can say goodbye to these long delays. Since there was an update with the penguin, the data of penguin will be refreshed in real time, meaning there is a faster response after you are done with reindex the webpage. The pages that will be captured by the new Penguin will also be released by the Penguin. Penguin 4.0 is now more specific regarding web pages. The new Penguin is more granular. Meaning that it affects more finer granularity than websites. And this does not necessary mean that it will only affect web pages. The new Penguin 4.0 only affects a certain page or website. Instead of affecting the ranking of the whole website, the Penguin can now devalue spam just by adjusting the rank based on the spam signal.
