Hello, It has been out for a few days, you guys are more likely knowing everything which needs to be known about the new Penguin algo. Nonetheless, here is a quick recap : 1) Granular updates - no more hard drop unrecoverable but with a 301 onto a new domain (terrible for business owners) or a Penguin too rare refresh. 2) Old Penalties being removed (still a few days to be 100% done). It doesn't mean you'll recover your former rankings as there are still a layer looking after this. 3) Neg SEO taking a hit here too which is a freaking good news. Basically, what Penguin is doing isn't penalizing any longer but just not taking into account the spam you do / did to boost your ranks. The Neg SEO loophole was a real thing by the way, I'm glad BHW didn't caution it to avoid turning the web as a rough battlefield. 4)Consequently disavowing links isn't needed anymore here is an article about it : http://searchengineland.com/google-penguin-doesnt-penalize-bad-links-259981 Quite few things to read through lines here. 1) Penguin was a success for Google, they managed to reduce the spammy results widely and increase what they always have been after : quality results 2) They admit they went too hard on it. I have read some very sad stories about suicidal persons wanting to give up on life following a rank drop for tiny businesses 3) The question is whether now the hard spam will be back and Penguin would just let through, the links Penguin overlooked. (hard to take that conclusion though, there must be something else or a true enhancement on how they define spam links).
