94% Of Google Penguin Victims Did Not Fully Recover

A few months ago, I ran a poll asking if you recovered from Penguin, Google's link based algorithmic filter/penalty (or whatever you want to call it).

Remember, 64% were hit by the Penguin update - at least, those who responded to my poll. And of those, how many recovered since the first, second and third updates? Not many!

Penguin Recovery Poll

81% said they had no recovery while 13% claim a partial recovery and only 6% claim a full recovery. That is based on over 500 responses to our poll.

I guess we await the next Penguin update to see if anyone can climb out with that one.

Keep in mind, we now have the disavow link tool which may help in this case.

Please see our poll disclosure policy.
