I feel the latest information I've discovered deserves it's own thread in order to help people get a better understand to the latest Google algorithm update "Penguin". Many people in the SEO industry agree that this latest update is basically an over optimisation penalty.
But how can Google's algorithm detect over optimisation?
This is the question I've been asking myself since the infamous update & today I've discovered some startling results.
I've found a phenomenon that can confirm your website is officially "penalised" & forced into over optimisation in order for Google's algorithm to detect.
Follow these steps if you think your site has been penalised by this latest "penguin" update. (If your site has disappeared or lost ranking by 30-70 pages)
1. Type in your domain name into Google - mysite.co.uk
2. Now tell me what page title it shows for your site in the serp?
3. Now tell me what your actual page title is for your website?
Is Google trying to tell us something or is this the only way Google's latest algorithm update can detect Over Optimisation?

I don't think so; Google's been changing page titles to suit the query for at least a couple years now. I have #1 rankings where they've changed the title tag. Infuriating, but I don't think it's a Penguin dropping. At least, it's not *only* a Penguin dropping.
