    He usually announces it weeks after it has been run.

    I'm damn sure the update is happening now though!

    What makes you think that gorang? I don't disagree but I wonder if it's the same thing that I am seeing

    I noticed huge jump in Yahoo/Bing(proven to mirror Google) and big movement in Google.

    So i pmed a few people who also manage a lot of sites and they are experiencing the same. I did a Google search for the past 24 hours with Penguin related keywords and there are lots of threads/posts of people experiencing movement.

    Remember, Google doesn't update all of their datacentres at once. They release updates to a select few, then to another part of the world etc etc

    So if you're not seeing movement yet, you may do soon. I'm in the UK and others in the UK are showing big movement.

    hmmm I did notice some very big positive movement yesterday, I am also from the UK.

    A few of my sites jumped into the top 3 that were otherwise just in the top 10.

    I am seeing good results on one datacentre for my site but nothing mainstream yet (but I am hoping). I started seeing this yesterday.

    I could be wrong. But my Penguin hit site just started jumping up in rankings and im seeing fluctuation across 15 sites so something has changed.

    The only way a site hit by penguin can recover is if there is a refresh, right?

    I had a penguin site come back from the dead about 5 days ago, was quite surprised as it hadn't been in the SERPs for many months.

    I thought that but more and more I am thinking that fixing the problem is what makes you come out. Then you just come back automatically. But there have been so few recoveries it's impossible to say.

    If by Jarring and Jolting Matt Cutts meant he'd increase my rank then he's certainly making me and my clients happy today :)

    Guys, if you could sum up what you've done on your website, it would be excellent. i.e

    No major changes here so far

    Web 2.0 properties with unique or spun content
    Yahoo answers backlinks
    Blog network
    Press Articles
    Bookmarking
    Video / PDf
    No link pinging

    Low link velocity overall, great anchors diversity
