The Penguin 4.0 Update Doesn’t Really Affect You, Here’s why
Another algorithm update! In a frenzy trying to understand what the Penguin 4.0 update means for your SEO strategy?
- Shouldn’t we all be going crazy trying to adapt to the new brain child of Google search?
- Has your SEO teamed evolved their practices accordingly?
- Is there a change you should be making to adapt to the changes?
- Can you expect the same results from your current SEO plan?
Relax. If you’re working with a team of SEO experts, they’ve been operating based on this update for a long while now, so no one is doing anything differently. The only change for you – you’ll be getting results faster with the official launch of Google real time Penguin Update.
When Penguin was first introduced in 2012, the changes of the algorithm were already made clear to industry experts. Aumcore constantly monitors Google’s new algorithms, and adapts quickly and efficiently to ensure SEO services have adapted accordingly. In some cases, (like with Penguin 4.0) this allows our team to stay ahead of schedule. What do we mean by that? Though Google made a big statement with the changes that Penguin would bring, not all the changes went into effect immediately.
Therefore, the Penguin 4.0 update isn’t really new news at all. It’s just an announcement that the changes previously introduced are now live and being actively enforced in Google search’s core algorithm. Which is great news for you. Your site’s value will be rated on a higher priority, so you’ll get good search engine ranking.
With the highly anticipated judgment of website value in real-time now in effect, submissions to Google have been prioritized. That means when your SEO experts suggest changes to Google, Google responds quickly. Instead of waiting several days for a response, Google is now resolving issues in a matter of just a couple of days or less. They are also crawling websites searching for site value as a greater priority, which means that even changes that have not been submitted will be resolved in a more efficient manner. Though not exactly in “real-time” as the term suggests, the added speed can make a big difference for sites utilizing search engine optimization with faster results.
Those that are experiencing negative effects due to the penguin update were likely involved in generating links doing spammy SEO practices (known as black hat SEO). That’s because the update also went live with the previously announced penalization of black hat link building techniques, posting links sporadically on un-relevant sites, taking links on a specific keywords based anchor to increase their ranking and spreading spam in order to receive SEO benefits.
