    Sacramento bee published an article on Google Penguin. Thought a piece of it would be helpful for everyone. Do you think it is about time when we should change the layout of our websites?

    The name of the article was
    Google's New Over-Optimization Penalty: Is Your Website at Risk?

    Actually Milian, there's a lot of data that's gone to show that enhancements were made to the page layout update during Penguin.

    My guess is that they utilized the data from the update in January, and rolled out a refresh of it during this latest update. Google even refers to it in the post on Penguin.

    We are discussing this, and other similar theories in this thread... http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ating-effects-search-engine-optimization.html

    They only refer to it in the Penguin post in reference to the other update. But yeah I;m sure they are tweeking it all the time.
