Poll: Were You Affected By Google Penguin 2.0?

Google Penguin WaddleIt has been just under a week since Google Penguin 2.0 (#4) was released and I wanted to gauge in an anonymous poll how SEOs and webmasters were impacted.

With Penguin 1.0, 64% claimed they were hurt by that update. There were very few recoveries since.

The interesting thing, with Penguin 2.0, I barely saw anyone claim a recovery from Penguin 1.0. I've seen a ton of SEOs and webmasters complain they were hit but I don't think I've seen anyone claim a recovery.

So check your analytics, restrict the reporting to only show Google organic traffic. Look to see if you had a major decline in Google traffic after May 22nd (it was pushed out May 22nd at night). Note, there was the Memorial Day weekend, which may impact traffic. But if you were hit by Penguin, you would see a huge decline in traffic. If you recovered, you'd see a huge increase in traffic.

Here is my poll, I beg you, tell your friends and colleague and even enemies to take the poll. I'll share the results with every soon:
