Google’s Webmaster Trends Analyst, Gary Illyes, stated on Twitter today the next Penguin update is due to roll out within weeks. At the very latest, it should launch by the end of this quarter.
This is the closest thing to a launch date we’ve heard out of the Google camp with respect to the next Penguin update. While reluctant to give an exact time frame, Illyes has at least given an estimate to hold over questioning webmasters and SEOs.
It has been over a year since Google officially rolled out an update to its link spam algorithm. Penguin 3.0 was rolled out in October 2014, which was technically just a “refresh” that affected less than 1% of English search queries.
