Stephen Kenwright posted, “Google Penguin 3.0 damage report”
“Google has yet to issue official confirmationbut we’re confident that the Penguin algorithm is currently rolling out.
Branded3 rank checks more than 125,000 keywords each day and stores them so we can see some of the biggest fluctuations already. We can drill this down to specific keywords/topics (SERPs) so we can be much more accurate when diagnosing ranking changes. Several sites we’re sure have been affected by the algorithm in the past have seen huge increases in rankings today. John Mueller has previously confirmed that Penguin would have to be run in order for this to happen so we can be pretty sure that it has.
Penguin 3.0 is an update of the algorithm not a refresh of the data set which means that the quality metrics feeding into Penguin have changed, along with the thresholds required to avoid it.
Whats new in Penguin 3.0?
If you missed the last Penguin update (it was around a year ago) you can read our thoughts about it here but todays update is a different beast altogether…”
