Google’s new real time Penguin algorithm, version 4.0, will probably be released by the end of year 2015.
We are all expecting the next Penguin update to happen soon, but now we know it will most likely be released within the next 2 months.
Gary Illyes, a Google Webmaster Trends Analyst, has posted on Twitter that he expects the release to be within 2015. Since just November and December remain in 2015, we have to suppose this release will happen within the next 2 months.
We can as well expect the next release to be the real time version. That means that the algorithm will update persistently in real time. There won’t be particular release dates for the Penguin updates after Penguin 4.0 (which is the upcoming release). Rather, as Google identifies spam links on a site, it may be affected by Penguin. In the meantime, when those spam links are removed and Google’s indexer picks up on that, the sites will no longer be affected by Penguin.
As news turns out on Google’s Penguin update, we will tell you.
