Only 7% Claim Full Recovery From Google's Penguin 2.0 Update

Google Penguin WaddleYesterday we covered the poll results of those impacted by Penguin 2.0 and today I wanted to share the results from our June poll asking how many of you recovered from the Penguin 2.0 update.

We had over 600 responses to the poll and 68% said they did not recover, why 17% said they partially recovered and 7% said they fully recovered. 8% said it did not apply to them.

You can compare this to our Penguin 2013 survey from the Penguin 1.0 update recoveries showing only 9% said they fully recovered. The numbers and percentages aren't all that different between 2.0 and 1.0 recovery responses.

The truth is, I don't know if Google rank any Penguin update between 2.0 and the time I ran this poll. That being said, I don't know how anyone could recover from Penguin 2.0 when Penguin hasn't be rerun by Google. Which goes to the poll disclaimer post, which talks about perception versus reality.

Here is the pie chart:
