Google first ever introduced the Penguin Algorithm Update in mid of the year in 2012 in April. The main purpose of this Penguin Algorithm was to capture the sites that were actually spamming in the Google search result, especially to catch the sites involved in purchasing links or acquiring links from the networks which were designed in the manner to boost Google rankings.

As the Penguin Algorithm is released, the ranking of the sites are boosted that took action to disavow spammmy links to get back to their rankings. In addition to this new sites which were not formerly captured by the Penguin Algorithm update might get caught by the new Penguin Algorithm Update.

The new kind of the Penguin Algorithm is called as the “Real Time” refers to the webmasters who disavowed their link will be processed by the Penguin Algorithm at the real time, which could help webmasters in quick recovery from google penalties. Simultaneously your website would now be more exposed to the Penguin penalty if it’s not been hyperlinked from the profitable sources.

Get a Recovery From Penguin Algorithm, The Real Time Update!

Since Penguin Algorithm, The Real Time Update targeted spam, now you must need to take action on any kind of spam you have. Though Google notifies the webmaster in Webmaster Central about any spam activity in some cases. So, that is why it is necessary you must verify your site in the Google Webmaster Central.

If you found any message from Google about any spam activity so without any confusion remove the spam that has been flagged to your site. If there is no message in Google Webmaster Central and nothing is being flagged and you think your site has been hit by Penguin Algorithm update then remove all spammy links manually. My opinion is to use the MOZ spam factor, if your any link spam score is 6 or above 6 then you must disavow that link.

Google Webmaster Central also supports the option for you to reconsider your site. Regardless of the reconsideration form, Google declares that the penalty is the algorithm automatic process, the person working for Google has noway in relation to sitting and spotting the spam and applying what’s called a manual penalty. This is the only reason Google told that reconsideration request wont work with Penguin penalty.
