Google: Panda & Penguin Are In Real Time But Still Require Manual Data Updates

Penguin and PandaWe've been covering all the confusion around Penguin and Panda about it being real time or manual. I explained based on covering John Mueller's explanation of what is real time and what is not over here.

But Google's Mariya Moeva explained it very concisely in a Google+ post, this is not new, because I covered it before, but the way Mariya explained it is short and concise:

Essentially, both (Panda and Penguin) are built-in in the realtime infrastructure, but the data has to be updated separately. I think this two-part process is what's leading to the confusion.

I don't speak Russian, but the reason this was prompted is because at the 46:42 minute part of the video, someone asked about this:

Q: Google's John Mueller is basically saying parts are real time and parts are not but with Penguin (and also currently with Panda), for you to recover, Google does need to run something manually and you need to wait for a refresh

A: Yes, absolutely, it is happening all the time

So I asked Mariya to explain and she responded:

I don't think we said anything extra revolutionary or surprising though (:. Essentially, both are built-in in the realtime infrastructure, but the data has to be updated separately. I think this two-part process is what's leading to the confusion. 

Again, this has led to a lot of confusion, I covered all of that over here but it is important enough to cover again.

Without the updated data, even though these algorithms are built into the real time infrastructure, you won't see any changes to your rankings around those specific algorithms.
