Google Penguin

For those wondering when Google will release Penguin 4.0, well - I don't have any new information for you. We expected it in 2015 and the holidays delayed it to 2016 but January came and past. So now we expect it in Q1 2016 but will that happen?

Gary Illyes from Google said on Twitter over the weekend that he simply doesn't know. He said "I haven't talked to the engineers for some time [about Penguin], I don't know."

Here is the set of tweets:

As you all know, this Penguin update is something that will be real time and updating as they update their index and signals. So there won't be a huge long waiting period.

We are now at almost 16 months since Penguin 3.0 although we had some Penguin shifts in December 2014.

Do you think it will happen this coming weekend?
