Penguin Refresh Is Months Away

Google’s Gary Illyes said over the weekend on Twitter that a Google “Penguin refresh is months away.”

The last official Penguin update we had was Penguin 3.0, which took place on October 18, 2014 or almost 9-months ago. The last time we saw a shift with the Penguin algorithm was before December 11, 2014, which was over 7-months ago.

So realistically, even though Google has said time and time again, that they will be making Penguin run faster – we are likely not to see a Penguin refresh for a while. Maybe it will take over a year like we saw between Penguin 2.1 on October 4, 2013 and Penguin 3.0 on October 18, 2014. Before that, Penguin 2.0 on May 24, 2012 and the original Penguin release on April 24, 2012.

At this rate, I suspect Penguin won’t happen for a year or so after Penguin 3.0.

Google Panda

Panda Still Coming Soon But Maybe Delayed For Technical Reasons

I am not sure what he means for technical reasons but it does seem to imply that Panda will not be refreshing today or this weekend. Will it be next week? I am not sure, I am starting to believe this is going to take longer than any of us expected.

The last official Panda update was Panda 4.1 which was on September 25, 2014, or over 9.5 months ago. I believe the last unofficial Panda refresh was October 24th or over 8.5 months ago.

I really do hope it comes soon and those sites that have “cleaned up” their web sites can come back to life. Of course, new sites will be hit, but Google needs to refresh these algorithm more regularly. Both for the sake of businesses failing and for the sake of the quality of the search results.
