Google’s Penguin algorithm has been updated successfully. Penguin is now equipped with a real-time indicator managed within its central search algorithm.

The updated version of Penguin is a filter built to capture sites that are spamming Google’s search outcomes. Google’s regular spamming systems are unable to detect such issues. This feature was introduced in 2012, but has operated on sporadically. The new-advanced Penguin filter catches numerous spamming sites and penalized them even if they have been corrected or modified.

With this latest release, Penguin becomes real-time! Re-crawled and re-indexes pages can be assessed by the Penguin filter. Pages can be fixed and/or unbound by Penguin under this systematic process.

As reported by Google:

“With this change, Penguin’s data is refreshed in real time, so changes will be visible much faster, typically taking effect shortly after we recrawl and reindex a page.”

Penguin is now page-specific and not sitewide! Furthermore, Google updated,
“Penguin is now more granular. Penguin now devalues spam by adjusting ranking based on spam signals, rather than affecting ranking of the whole site.”

Google also reported-

“It means it affects finer granularity than sites. It does not mean it only affects pages.”
Penguin may perhaps impact specific pages or sections on a site. Google also cleared the air that there will be no more Penguin update!

Is Penguin fully functional?
Google informed that- “This real-time Penguin update is probably not fully live yet. It is now “rolling out.”
