Never a day goes by without someone asking about the latest Google Penguin update, and we know that Google has become very tight lipped about announcements in advance. Just in the last day or so a Googler confirmed that the next Penguin update might be the last time it’ll have a specific update. Penguin 4.0 could be the final time to count the numbers as Google moves to make Panda and Penguin build in real-time updates. No date was given about Penguin, however, we’re all watching for the change, either as an announcement, or as a change to the SERPs.
Keep a lookout on your sites and Google SERPs, and report in our update thread, which is usually the best place on the Internet to show when a change is occurring.
Over the last month our hot topics and news included more Google AMP news, a major action on Google over Antitrust, web hijacking statistics, desktop usage statistics and trends, and each provided our members with the opportunity to discuss and learn from these, and many other topics of relevance to their businesses.
