Google’s Penguin 3.0 update still being rolled out

Penguin 3.0

Last month we reported that Google were rolling out their third and latest Penguin Algorithm, and it would seem that the update is still in the process of being rolled out – for some websites at least.

Almost three weeks after the refresh first took place Google’s John Mueller, via a Webmaster Help Hangout, announced yesterday that the update is still active.

But it would seem that Mueller is referring to the worldwide roll out of Penguin 3.0, as we already know that the US English version was completed some time ago.

So if you’re located outside of the United States, or your sites are written in languages other than English, you may still see some fluctuations in rankings for the time being.

The best advice is to keep monitoring your rankings and don’t get too comfortable thinking Penguin 3.0 is history and you weren’t affected – there’s still time!
