Google Real Time Penguin Roll

Google's Penguin 4.0 algorithm, the real time granular version, is now fully rolled out. We've been covering Penguin forever and more recently now since it started rolling out sometime around September 23rd.

Gary Illyes from Google told us a week ago that it should be completely rolled out soon and now it is.

I believe Gary said this at PubCon, but Jennifer Slegg got him to reconfirm this news on Twitter. Here are those tweets:

Tweet confirming the full roll out is done:

Penguin Complete

Tweet confirming all previous Penguin releases dating back to Penguin 1.0 will see this impact on some level:

Penguin Impact All Ps

Tweet saying a similar thing about all Penguin releases impacted before it was fully rolled out:

Penguin Impact All Ps2

So Penguin 4.0 is fully live and if you did not see any level of recovery yet, I guess you still have work to do.
