    if this realtime penguin is really realtime unlike old version of penguin thats slowly rolling out,
    theres nothing i have afraid on this because disavow tools must be real time as well so aslong as you disavov spammy links there will be no problem, but i hope we dont hit on this epic update

    Nothing too noticeable on my end. Up a spot here and there that's about it.
    *edit. Nevermind my BH site got hit for a couple keywords that didn't even really have that much done to it.
    White hat site went up a spot here and there.

    I've had 20+ sites jump from 1-30+ positions, and about 8 or 9 that are a bit confused about what they're doing, but look like they're on the way down (from 8 down to 36, then back to 9, etc).

    Interestingly, just about all of those with immediate net gains are my oldest sites.

    I am with Hawkster and hoping the couple KWs that went down were due to link building. Fingers crossed.

    My rankings have plummeted since yesterday.. the only thing that's making me keep hope is that I haven't done any crazy link building. Just 2.0s and some EDU's. Hopefully it's nothing for me.

    All my sites have gained rankings... though I use no SAP, PBA or anything like that on any of them. They have all been hand done and all moved up... FINALLY!

    I haven't noticed anything too unusual across any of my sites or my clients' websites other than a small increase in traffic on 1 of my sites and on 1 of my clients sites.

    Definitely looks like the algo change is here! One of my whitehat sites shot through the roof in traffic over the last couple of days.
