expect Google penguin 2.0 anytime now

We expect the new Google update in the first 2 weeks of September, and it could happen any time now.

no one really know what it will be about exactly, but what we are sure of is that it will be a continuance of penguin 1,

while some of us hoped that it will be a repair update, that will fix some issues brought with penguin 1, they will be disappointed.

what we think that the new penguin 2.0 will focus on content and keywords again and some other linking strategies that was not covered by the first penguin like links from directories, and linkwheels.

But will also may check on any repairing you have made, for example if you have removed any bad backlinks since the first update.

my tip to you is that:

make more effort on writing original high quality content, and write for people not search engine, you cannot trick Google with optimizing your content anymore. so just write content that people will like.

make your website readable, and so easy to access the content and navigation, reduce animation and advertizements, especially from the header.


Still you need quality and quantity of backlinks, you need to stop the old fashion of link building strategies. start using your common since. any easy way to get backlink must be suspicious to you.

maybe its time to start outsourcing, find or hire someone to help you in your link building. some link building service do adjust fast to any Google update, and i think it's a good time to use some of those services to get some high quality backlinks.

here are 2 articles i found interesting about the topic

Penguin 2.0 New Google Update September 2012

    Awesome! I can't wait for the new Penguin update!

    Maybe REAL sites, with REAL backlinks will start to rank high in Google, instead of all these Senuke sites. :p

      I'd have to agree. Everyone should know that if they have a good site, they wont be hit. And what i mean by good is..well real sites with real backlinks.

      Personally, my site wasnt hit at all. Reason being: didnt have anything "black hat" going on. Rankings stayed exactly the same.

    It is like Tsunami and Indian Ocean, (Google and webmasters/SEO consultants) - When first time Tusnami hit in 2004, people were not aware and it made huge lose of lives. Later days, during alerts 2012 early April, people were alert but there were NO Tsunami

    Anyhow, now we all are alert about Penguin/Panda, so no worries now whether it will come or not :p

        I guess the passing of Rev. Sun Myung Moon has
        left a void that needs to be filled.

        If you people are waiting, hoping, wishing, for
        some penguin update, man, you people should
        get a life.

        I just can't believe the hype that just goes on here.

        Or the panic. Get a grip people. It's not too late.

          What! Sky has fallen, Rev. Moon is dead. Promised Messiah has come and gone, surely the end of the world cannot be too far away. The first signs of impending Armageddon, Panda and Penguin slashing sites into Perdition. :-)

      I'm curious about the new Penguin update as well, I always thought of SEO as a fun and easy way of making some quick money online, I also think it's great for list building purposes!

      @paulgl - still waiting to see a positive angled post from you man... is that all you ever do? Find topics you disagree with and leave dismissive opinions? Maybe you're the one who should get a life.

          Paulgl is like the teacher in class that not many like but everyone gets a lot to learn from. When I joined WF I was of the same opinion, but after reading his posts over a period of time, I have learnt a lot (which is now actually helping me make some money.)

    Nice link bait.

    I'm excited about it and I have a life.

    I just want to see what happens next in the SEO world.

    I'm excited about the possibility of seeing less crappy stuff showing up on SERPs.


    And yeah, although the OP raised an interesteing topic, it was clearly for the link bait.

    Ok some of you don't care much, wonder why? because I was in Google #3 in a very popular and high competitive keyword, and i made more than $6000 in selling ad-space only, I ended all my aff marketing and focused only on JV and selling ad space. and i honestly don't care about writing a proper English as long as my readers get the message, i speak 6 languages.

    after the first penguin i lost my ranking and i was pushed to 300, that's mean no more income for me, and i need to start all over again.

    So for some of us, yes we care what Google do all the time, and what is new in the SEO business, and what is new in the internet marketing. Otherwise you will never find me here, maybe i will hang on some other (fun) forum

    I don't think that Google penguin 2.0 will happen anytime now, I believe that Google working on disavow link tool and they will launch soon to let webmaster disavow spam links created by other sites then after they will update Google penguin to target spam and low quality sites ...you should expect Google penguin 2.0 somewhere at the end of the year...

      *laughs* What a clown, you reply to this at the end of the month calling bs like you are Nostradamus.

      This is like me making a prediction, Green bay Packers are going to lose in week 3 over a blown call at the end of the 4th quarter! How did I do?

      He did the same thing a lot people do, read it on the internet so it must be true.

    I am against spammer I agree but what if Google make a mistake.. Google engineers did already mistake by Jul 26 sending "unnatural links" message to the webmaster for a innocent reasons,message has occurred due to wrong algorithm set tweaking by the Google engineers, who said is not possible that they may do mistake with Google penguin 2.0 and even good sites with Good content get wiped out...

    I think it was already Google penguin 2 and 3

    Penguin 1 was April 24, 2012 effected (3.1%)
    Penguin 2 was May 26, 2012 effected (less than 0.1%)
    Penguin 3 was Oct. 5, 2012 effected (0.3%)

    so I would say it was already Google penguin 2 and 3 ...

    Tricking google is like trying to trick a grown adult into selling their car and house for a cheeseburger.

    Gone are the days of spamming your link everywhere and expecting to get on the first page for your keyword. It's not going to happen. In fact, you'll probably end up worse than when you started.

    Focus on writing good, quality content and don't worry about backlinks - they will come naturally with time.

    IMO, in the post penguin world, this is the only way to gain true success with google.

    The first update hurt me. I went from 5,000 visitors per day to 800. The next few updates helped me, though I still don't get 5,000 daily visitors, I do earn LOTS more on clicks and sales!

    One thing that helped me I think is my competitors got scared to link build, I kept pace and stayed the course, NOW I am dominating! Keep building those backlinks folks =)

      Google is rolling out algo changes all the time. I have an authority site (9 year old domain) that dropped from Google literally overnight at the end of September. (I'm sure it was the EMD penalty.) Traffic dropped by 90%. In fact, overall, since September my online income dropped 50% due to less targeted (SEO driven) traffic.

      You may think that you're safe and playing by the rules, but there is no guarantee that your site won't suffer when the Big G sneezes.

    I understand that Penguin 1.0 effected lots of people, and if you don't want to hear yet another complaint about it please skip the rest of this post.

    Penguin 1.0 devastated my website, after stocking up for my continuous rise, renting a large storage space for the extra stock, plus hiring two extra staff. Penguin hit, and my Google traffic suddenly dropped and stayed below 30% of what it once was,. Feeling hopeful, since I had never done anything but white hat marketing, I held on, and held on to my staff....one year later, last month, was the first month I had been able to pay the bills with work in a year, it was not that Google was starting to show me a lot of love, but because I had brought my closing ratio up from .4% to 2% and now just as I thought I saw light on the horizon it is covered in the shadow of a supposedly even larger Penguin 2.0.

    I hope that when the dust settles in the wake of Penguin 2.0's rampage, I am at least back to where I was last month, but I dearly wish it would reset me to pre penguin levels. I used to think penguins were cute, but now I find them and Google in general to be the stuff that makes up my nightmares.
