Google Penguin Algorithm

I know, I've been covering Penguin like a crazy clown but we only really covered how some are seeing Penguin recoveries. When there are ups in rankings, someone else's rankings need to go down - that is just logical - there is only one site that can rank in the number one organic spot.

Gary Illyes from Google implied in a set of tweets that it is quiet a few sites that saw their links devalued, when they were not demoted before, that probably took a hit in the Google rankings.

You can find this on Twitter where he said in response to link devaluations.
