Penguin 4.0 Algorithm Live And Running Wild!!
Google’s Gray Illyes on Twitter has officially confirmed Penguin 4.0 Algorithm Update. Google Webmaster Blog states Penguin is now part of the core algorithm
Google last updated Penguin in October 2014, which resulted in Webmasters waiting two years for Google to refresh Penguin. Sites that were affected in October 2014 should see recovery. If you dont see recovery it means the site has not been cleaned.
The real-time Penguin will crawl the web as part of the core algorithm and amend as they crawl. The new Penguin is no longer site-wide and will impact pages on an individual basis (it wont affect the entire site, only spam pages)
Google had the following to say:
With this change, Penguin’s data is refreshed in real time, so changes will be visible much faster, typically taking effect shortly after we recrawl and reindex a page. It also means we’re not going to comment on future refreshes…
Penguin is now more granular. Penguin now devalues spam by adjusting ranking based on spam signals, rather than affecting ranking of the whole site.
Always remembering, you can use the disavow file for links you think are hurting your site, which should take a few days to reflect.
Will the page then restore its rankings to its original state?
No the page will not restore its full rankings if you remove or disavow links (it will only remove the filter) Always remembering prior to the algorithm filter you were credited for those links. Your credit is now gone, the page now ranks were it should.
Furthermore, Penguin is only one of over 200 signals Google use when weighing a site.
To fully recovery simple concentrate on other signals that could even result in higher rankings.
The simplicity of 1+1=2!!

Did Cyber SEO slip in rankings?
No. Cyber SEO has PR0 and has never embarked on backlinking (except for nofollow links) The Cyber SEO site and all my other personal sites that also have PR0 actually increased in rankings, and will continue doing so.
We don’t believe in self created links and don’t believe in creating automated links via programs like ‘XRumer’, which is a program that can post links and ads on more than 400,000 resources and ‘Ultimate Demon’ as well as ‘Sick Submitter’.
To be honest. So called backlink specialists such as the likes of Rand Fishkin and Eric Ward and MOST SEO EXPERTS are barking up the wrong tree and are emphasizing to much importance on backlinks, which your site does not need to rank front page (our sites rankings are proof of it)
