One of our sites that was hit by Penguin is interestingly making a strong but slow recovery since the middle of July. But that was the "grey panda" update...which shouldn't affect Penguin?
Perhaps a Penguin tweak has been silently inserted along side the Panda update to prevent users from reverse engineering the results?
We definitely link built and were affected by the April 24th/May 26th dates when Penguin first came out. Did link scrub, but didn't see results from that.
Perhaps google has a engineered a delayed ascension algorithm for penalized sites that now are awarded a higher spot, but google wants to slow down your site getting to that rank to obscure its ranking formula?
