I was hit by Penguin 2.1 in Oct 2013.

I was on 1st page before Penguin 2.1 and then no-where.

We work hard and recover from Manual Action Penalty from google.

After recovery on major keywords, we were on 3/4/5 pages...

On Penguin 3.0 - Nothing is been change for us. We are on same place where we were before.

I assume recover need Penguin refresh but for me, nothing is been changed.

Please suggest, if some one else site get recover on this refresh.

Thank you

So far Penguin 3.0 is a disaster for the 4 real-estate sites the sites have further dropped positions

Step 1 - Wait for the dust to settle. Big updates like this often take several days to be fully implemented.

Step 2 - Educate yourself before hiring anyone or buying anything. Many people falsely promise they can fix your penguin problems. If your revenue took a big hit, you better educate yourself or you can end up wasting your remaining marketing budget on a useless consultant or tool.

Step 3 - Be productive. Don't allow yourself to be distracted with self pity or anger towards Google. It is not profitable or helpful.

I wouldn't give up just yet.

As I post this, there are reports that Google Penguin is still rolling out and is not complete yet.

Below is a link to Video Hangout shared on another thread by Catalyst @ [webmasterworld.com ]

John Mueller from Google said in a video hangout this AM, that the Penguin roll out is now complete and fully done. Penguin discussion starts 46 minutes in.[youtu.be ]

I think John is correct when he says that the original roll out is finished but Google has been known to make minor adjustments after a roll out and the rare roll back. We can probably start analyzing now but we shouldn't be surprised if we come across any fluctuations.

I have a lot of sites in the UK. I have seen no movement at all.

My only competitors are brands, and they don't seem to have been affected either way.

Google just confirmed the roll out will continue for several weeks.

With this Google has also confirmed beyond any doubt whatsoever that the left hand has no clue what the right hand is doing!

You have not done enough link cleaning, generating new authority links. The efforts was not in the right directions other you could have recovered. You still got time to something better and recover in the next update.

There are still a lot of fluctuations. I have sites that are jumping all around and some that are actually improving. I think it will take some time for the dust to settle...

I guess its does now, there are still fluctuations but not much. The website that supposed to be recovered have already been recovered.

Agree with Paulsimmons,

There is less fluctuation and did not find major changes in organic search result.
