Internet Marketing News: Google 2.1 Has Been Released
Internet Marketing News: Google 2.1 Has Been ReleasedOn Friday, Matt Cutts announced on Twitter that the Penguin 2.1 algorithm has been launched and is now live. Affecting up to 1% of searches to a noticeable degree, this latest Penguin update is relatively minor in comparison to the last one, which affected around 2.3% of queries. The Penguin algorithm is periodically released by Google to target sites that are spamming search results but are still ranking well. Although it does target all types of spam, Penguin looks for unethical linking in particular – especially sites which may have paid for links.
Penguin Targets Sites with Spam – Especially Bad LinksThe chances are you’ll have seen changes in traffic and rankings over the weekend if you’ve been affected – if you haven’t you’re probably safe. In fact you may have seen improvements! If you have been affected though, you’ll need to disavow or manually remove bad links. Penguin is an automated process, so you won’t recover until what it sees as bad has been removed. Penguin is a site-wide update, so if you have seen changes in your rankings, traffic or both, you’re best off looking at your entire website to see if there’s anything that can be seen as spammy. As mentioned above, links continue to be a biggie in the Penguin updates so take a hard look at these.
