One among over 200 unique aglorithms that Google use to PageRank, called ‘Penguin’, today received an update in all languages.
“Penguin”, was first launched in 2012, has the following key changes today:
Until today, Penguin needed to be refreshed periodically to update the sites list, but now “it is real-time”. With this change, “Penguin’s data is now refreshed in real time,” write google. So changes “will take effect shortly after Google bot recrawl and reindex a page.” “It also means we’re not going to comment on future refreshes,” added Google.
In addition, Penguin now devalues spam by adjusting ranking based on spam signals, ‘rather than affecting ranking of the whole site.”
“Historically, the list of sites affected by Penguin was periodically refreshed at the same time.” Once a “webmaster considerably improved their site and its presence on the internet,” many of Google’s “algorithms would take that into consideration very fast,” but others, like Penguin, “needed to be refreshed.”
