Matt Cutts, tweeted about it, saying, “Minor weather report: We pushed 1st Penguin algo data refresh an hour ago. Affects <0.1% of English searches."

If you're doing SEO for lead generation for local businesses, here's a short video I created (as part of a 40-minute webinar presentation) which compares lead generation, conversion and customer acquisition to commercial fishing, where the goal is to catch the most fish of the right kind (that is, profitable!) as possible, for the least possible time, effort, cost, risk, waste, etc.

SEO in this situation is like hiring someone who scrapes and re-paints your trawler's hull, fits you out with radar and sonar gear for finding fish, then sends you back out onto the open ocean — where it's slow, dangerous, unpredictable, costly and very hard work — to compete with an ever-growing armada of hi-tech fishing trawlers hunting for any fish out there... including all the wrong kinds and all the ocean junk floating in our seas.

A much better solution is to set up a fish farm, stocked with the right kinds of fish, where you can harvest all the fish you want with minimal time, effort, cost, waste and risk.

Hardly a thing of the past! This is from SearchEngineJournal

This past month as SXSW in Austin, TX, Google’s Matt Cutts announced that the Panda algorithm will be more of a rolling update that will be implemented automatically and gradually, instead of by manual refresh. For website owners this means that changes will be much less noticeable and easier to digest (We hope!). Penguin, on the other hand, will soon be our next big headache. As a matter of fact, also while at SXSW in Austin, Matt Cutts stated that there will be a large Penguin update in 2013 that he thinks will be one of the more talked about Google algorithm updates this year. He reported that Google’s search quality team is working on a major update to the Penguin algorithm, which he called very significant and I am sure the full effects will be clear to website owners when the new update is final. Unfortunately, Google hasn’t released any details about the next generation Penguin, (Penguin 4).

With all these confusing updates I don't know what SEO is anymore. I just let it be now.

Google Penguin update is an important algorithm change targeted at webspam. The change will decrease rankings for sites that we believe are violating Google’s existing quality guidelines

It's even worse because Google makes the rules and aren't always clear as to what they are until their next update. Some people have gotten hit with an update while using tactics that were once considered 'white hat'.

SEO professionals need to be extra careful these days. The line between black and white and even gray is becoming very blurred.


Google is just tired of webmasters who try to trick their way into Google search. How hard is it to create a high quality site with really good quality content? It's not hard at all, but it does require time, dedication and effort and some people would rather cheat their way past that by using spun content or scraping content off other sites. Those same blackhatters spammed the internet with backlinks on any and every blog they could find, imagining that Google would automatically assume those low quality blog comments with spammy backlinks are a sign of prestige. But, now many of those webmasters who engaged in blackhat techniques are finding out better since Penguin algorithm rolled out.

True. We started hammering SEO spammers on these forums a couple of years ago. It took more than a year for most of them to get the message, and we still get a lot of them signing up, but we spot them mostly before they ever post even once and boot and ban them.

Google Penguin algorithm was designed to update its predecessor and complement its efforts to encounter poor content by detecting maligned and black-hat SEO practice. Though this update, Google aimed to catch website that were spammy, overly-optimized or keyword stuffed to penalize them.

The Penguin update specifically tackled websites that used the following wrong practices for their link building efforts:

1. Over-optimized inbound links
2. Link Farms
3. Links from article marketing websites that contain thin content and anchor text links to a website
4. Reciprocal links and poor quality inbound links with irrelevant partners
