Title: Google Penguin Update Timeframe Now ‘This Quarter’

The much anticipated Google Penguin update has been expected this month, but from the sound of it, that’s unlikely at this point. Google’s Gary Illyes mentioned on Twitter (via Search Engine Roundtable) that it is probably “weeks” off and that Google is aiming for this quarter.

@mrjamiedodd I'll go with weeks. We're aiming for launching penguin this quarter, but we don't have a more precise timeframe.

For a significant part of last year, Google suggested that the update could hit before the end of 2015. That was until the end of 2015 actually approached, and they hinted at a January launch.

Eight days into January, Illyes said he hadn’t seen the experiment results.

It’s worth noting that Illyes isn’t actually on the team that works on Penguin even if he generally serves as one of the main messengers to webmasters.

As you probably know by now, this Penguin update is supposed to go real-time, so it will continuously update without webmasters having to wait forever for a refresh if they happen to be impacted by it and need to make changes to their site to recover visibility in search results.

Title: Another Google Update Gets Webmasters’ Attention

Last week, a big update to Google’s core search algorithm dominated the SEO headlines (along with the fact that Google said that Panda is now baked into the core algorithm). The update rolled out the weekend prior, and it looks as though history has repeated itself.

Now there are reports of another big core update from this past weekend with Google confirming it.

SEOs and the webmaster community have been anxiously awaiting Google’s forthcoming Penguin update (which the company has been teasing for what seems like an eternity). When the previous core update launched there was Penguin speculation among some of the community, but that was shot down. Once again, with this more recent update, the speculation once again occurred.

According to Google (via Search Engine Land) it was still not Penguin:

@AdilAdilrehman core algorithm. Not penguin

Google is still expected to push the new Penguin within the month. That may or may not happen, but last we heard about the timing, it was looking likely. It was even supposed to happen before the end of last year, but Google ultimately delayed it because of the holidays. Still, there’s likely more to it than that or it would probably have begun rolling out by now. Stay tuned.

Title: Google Webmaster Guy Hasn’t Seen Penguin Yet

For a significant part of last year, we heard that Google’s next Penguin update would likely happen before the end of the year. That didn’t happen. Last month, Google finally admitted it wasn’t going to.

At the time, it sounded like it wasn’t quite ready yet, but was very close. It also sounded like it would likely happen THIS month. Google’s John Mueller said he was confident it would come in January. Here’s what he said (as transcribed by Search Engine Roundtable):

Um, I don’t want to make any date promises but I am hopeful that things are lined up. Since it was kind of on the edge for this year, I’m pretty confident that that’s good enough for January. But I really don’t want to make any announcements on that.

We’re now eight days into the month, and so far, there’s no sign. Google’s Gary Illyes, who often responds to webmaster questions, including those about Penguin (even though he’s not on the actual team that works on it), said he hasn’t seen any experiment results from the upcoming update yet:

@rustybrick i haven't seen the experiment results yet, i could only speculate. which i won't @DonnieStrompf

@rustybrick dunno, my future reading skills are rusty @DonnieStrompf

— Gary Illyes (@methode) January 8, 2016

@rustybrick penguin is not my baby, I'm just your messenger, but the team is very open to feedback. Yes I'll see it before @DonnieStrompf

As you probably know by now, this Penguin update is supposed to go real-time, so it will continuously update without webmasters having to wait forever for a refresh if they happen to be impacted by it and need to make changes to their site to recover visibility in search results.
