What’s the Latest Google Update?
Google’s most recent update is all about its Penguin algorithm. This in Penguin’s fourth major release, making it Penguin 4.0, and took 2 years to complete. Initially introduced in 2012, Penguin is a filter designed to capture sites that are spamming Google’s search results. In other words, Penguin catches and penalizes spammy websites.
Penguin’s latest release allows this filter to work in real-time. With this update, changes are visible much faster. As Google crawls and indexes pages, the Penguin filter now constantly assesses them without any delays.
But that’s not all. Google also said this new update is “more granular” with Penguin becoming more page-specific, not sitewide. This means that it only devalues spam links instead of penalizing entire sites.
Overall, Penguin 4.0 is an invaluable asset to Google. It eliminates the noise of link spam and allows real, value-driven links to shine through.
How Will Penguin 4.0 Affect Your Business?
Penguin 4.0 possesses the potential to greatly affect your business. Specifically, it possesses the potential to greatly affect the Google ranking of your business. And as you probably already know, the better your Google ranking, the better chance you have at getting new leads!

As a result, there is now more of an emphasis on real strategies and less on manipulation. Basically, Penguin 4.0 helps businesses that use best SEO practices rank higher and faster than ever before.
