    According to Google Engineer Matt Cutts Penguin is an improve version of Panda Update to the Google algorithm which was released on the 24th of April 2012, with the mission to demolish those websites which are over-optimized with webspam techniques. To bring traffic to the website, a few sites use tactics that don't give benefits to users, as they are taking a shortcut which makes their site rank higher then its expectation.Google Penguin update will not affect those blogs/websites which are using pure SEO as they heavily depends on their content and according to Google content is the king. This update will completely change the way of searching it will not only give better search results but also give a boost to high quality blogs/websites by ranking them high in SERP (Search Engine Results). It's easy to discover, just search some of your popular keywords in Google and check whether your site is getting the same rank that it use to get previously if it is getting the same ranking then we you have survive the first wave. Now quickly look at your website statistics and check how much visitors is referred by Google. If you saw a major traffic drop down then compare your old stats with your current stats if so, then you are unlikely hit by a Penguin Update. But if you saw a rise in your traffic then Penguins is being cute to you so don't worry. Saw no change? Then you are safe it has no impact on your website.

    Comment Spamming - It's time to say good bye to it:
    It's been an old trend to build backlinks by commenting on high page rank websites but as the technology is getting advance we need to elaborate our self. It is the time that we stop comment spamming this not only irritates a blog owner but now it can also affect your site ranking. Most users only post a comment for the sake of getting a BackLink they use automation commenting which are over stuffed with keywords and links which makes it simple for Google to identify this, and penalize these sites which are using such spam techniques.

    Overflowed Same Keywords - Killing SEO:
    Keywords are the most essential part of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) it allows users to get the relevant content with the help of search engines. But most of the users are using it as a source of getting traffic by using blackhat techniques. They use the same keywords in every line of there article which makes Google to suspect why they are repeating same keywords again and again hence they penalty them.

    Duplicate Content - Another Wrong Habit:
    I can't understand why people copy others hard work, we have witnessed it million times. Copying content is considered as a crime, if we copy others posts then we will be considered as a content thief. I don't know why people are continuing the same trend of copying, its time that we come out from the shell and instead of copying we should concentrate on building our own unique content. After the Google Penguin update, it is almost impossible to attain high rank in SERP by copying contents. So its better to concentrate on building our own unique content If we still continue to repeat copyright violation then our blog may face detention in form of getting banned from SERP (Search Engine Results)

    Penguin is simply the latest Google algo tweak. They seem to be naming updates after animals these days... maybe thinking people will like them more if they have a cute fuzzy name ;-)

    I think only the name has changed but it's continually updates from Panda. The main purpose is to slap spammed and poor quality sites but actually in fact this new update still make IM people confusing because the rank result in SERP's not accurate.
