So what is Google Penguin?

For anyone who doesn’t know, Google Penguin is an update launched by Google designed to catch sites that are deemed to be spamming Google’s search results. Predominantly this is done so by buying links or obtaining links through link networks designed to get them better search rankings.

Is this the first Penguin Update?

No, it’s been over a year now since the last official Google Penguin update, Google Penguin 3.0, which only affected around 1% of US English search queries.

What can we expect from the new update?

At the current time, there is not much detail of what we can expect from this new update and it is unlikely that we will find out much more information from Google until after the update is rolled out.
