    I have searched high and low for the answer but everywhere they only talk about how it is part of there core algorithm and yet many users here have shown fluctuations and dropped rankings.

    So what exactly is it? What is google targeting with it?

    As much I know..
    It is basically that Penguin has become part of core algorithm it will be active in real time so the good and bad changes will be faster..
    means if you get spammy link to your site you will get ass kicked immediate instead of when next update comes and if you remove the spammy link you will be re indexed all in real time ...
    Also what I have heard is that it will allow domains to get penalties for pages ...

    So if I post a link on my PBN my page will either move up or down within a day rather then the 3 days - 2 weeks period that was happening?

    According to Google’s official website, Penguin 4.0 is now active and fully incorporated into the search engine. One of the factors that many website owners will be relieved about is that “spammy” factors discovered by Penguin will no longer penalize the entire website—just the individual pages that the factors appear on. And if a website removes those factors, Penguin now refreshes its ranking of the page right away instead of having to be refreshed periodically.

    I am still lost because the first thing was placed so they can slow down sites from climbing up the ladders too fast. I highly doubt that has changed.

    Second thing is what every blog post is reporting. It does not explain why the rankings of others were affected. What exactly is the penguin? What does it target?

    They don't care about a site going up fast as long as the content is relevant and useful to the user.

    Penguin Targets spammy links..Earlier update used to come once in period of months or something like that and Fuck sites now it has become part of the google's core algorithm and now it will be continuous active

    Earlier - Your website's specific LP has spam links ,the site was ranking then Penguin update came and your whole site got fucked.

    Now - Your website's LP has spam link google bot crawls your page finds spammy link on the page you landing page gets Penalized

    Ah! Finally makes sense. So basically when setting up PBN it will be better to test the domain out just incase it was spam bound? You know apart from regular checking. Or is it more like GSA and crappy spam links?

    Yes you can build some PBNs see the response of google for them if they get indexed or ranking then use them to promote money site but Well there are many other methods to make sure your PBN doesn't have spammy backlinks...

    It will just analyse your site if you have spammy links doesn't matter from GSA or anywhere it will Penalize you until you remove the link and when you disvow the link the process of reindexing your page will be faster..
