Google’s latest algorithm update is starting to take effect, with many website owners experiencing a notable drop in traffic and enquiries from websites.

Penguin specifically targets back links to website. Links from poor-quality websites, link farms or irrelevant websites are seen as “webspam”. Websites linking from them will be penalised.

Back links have been an important part of Google’s algorithm, and it has now evolved to prevent unethical techniques from gaining ranking advantages. The first Penguin update was released in April 2012, followed by smaller updates. Penguin 2.0.

Sites can recover from algorithm updates. There are a number of steps that you can take:

  • Collate and analyse backlinks – identify the links that are hurting your  website.
  • Put an action plan in place to request back link removal, and follow up to check that the link has gone.
  • Ensure that future links are from relevant, trusted and good-quality sources. A well thought-out content marketing strategy can help attract natural back linking. White papers, blog articles and infographics create excellent sharing and linking opportunities.
