Comment 1 by Google “Penguin is now real-time”

Before: Previously the websites that got hit by penguin could not recover even after the webmasters would remove the spammy links. They had to wait for months before the website could be recovered. Penguin, needed to be refreshed periodically.

After: The data is in real time now, changes are now updated shortly after Google re crawls the page again and reindexes it.

Comment 2 by Google  “Penguin is now more granular”

Penguin now looks at each page and does not spam the entire site.

BEFORE: Sitewide penalty

AFTER: the entire is not devalued if only one page gets a panalty.

Google recommends webmasters should focus on improving the quality of their websites to boost their rankings.
