Last Weekend, The head of spam team, Matt Cutts announced that the Google updated 3rd Penguin algorithm, actually it is under process. This update affected only 0.3% of English queries. All the forecasting were proven wrong as several webmasters and Matt Cutts himself predicted the Google Penguin update to be “Jolting and jerking”. In fact, it was the first time when Google fully pushed out a Google update on the similar day. It means you and other users have seen key varies from Friday to Saturday. Well, various bloggers described that they have witnessed a foremost dip from Friday to Saturday. Evaluating your site traffic from last Friday to Saturday would allow you to discern either you are secure or hit by Google Penguin Algorithm. Today we will cater the Google Penguin 3.0 Algorithm refreshment from depth.

Guys, believe me or not, after waiting more than 4 and a ½ month to be exact I was expecting a real mammoth Google update, but Google looks to be privileging blogger for the first time. Well Matt Cutts said that “We should expect something Jerking and Jolting from the next Google Penguin update” but that never occurred because it affected only 0.3% English queries globally.

Recent Back 2 Back Algorithm Updates:

Last two weeks, the entire webmaster community has eye-witnessed back 2 back algorithm updates one after another, However, we are still unable to understand with Google update causes an impact. Now, I am showing you some brief history what has occurred.
  1. EMD UPDATE: on September 28th a first ever Google algorithm update was pushed out that mainly worries with the “Exact Matched Domains” (EMD).
  2. Panda Algorithm Update: on September 27th by October 6th which affected less than 2.4% of English queries globally. 
  3. Penguin Refresh: on 5th October, it affected only 0.3 English queries (present One).

Comparing EMD, Panda and Penguin Updates:

Since, these updates were pushed out in 2 weeks so everybody is failing to understand which update has affected their SERP position. After getting some proof, we have come up with a graph that seems what actually occurred during Google updates.


As you are seeing above graph displays that, whenever an Google algorithm updated comes the traffic goes down so which shows that all the Google updates have the same kinds of impact on search engine outcomes. Nevertheless, it is not exactly precise.
