It looks as though Google has reached the point where they can no longer support the little guy. The rich are being favored and the poor are being suppressed, forced onto the streets with no hope in hell for making a quick dollar to support their families. This update is the perfect example for an elite society. Google stock dipped on the 17th, which happens to be the day Penguin was released. As soon as the update rolled out, stocks went up. The people that are gloating in my circle are the ones that can afford to hold PBNs in the thousands. Untouched and even improved in ranking. Others in this community are even waving the "I survived because I'm awesome" flag, even though they use link networks. So really, Penguin 3.0 is not really about fighting spam at all. It's about wiping out low quality links in order to increase advertising revenue. What is next?
