News broke within the SEO industry today that online businesses will want to take very seriously. Google’s Penguin 3.0 algorithm, the boogieman under the bed of your website, will update continuously in 2015 and beyond. Some are calling it Penguin 3.X. Has a ring to it, doesn’t it?
We can’t say that we didn’t have an idea that this was coming. When the October 2014 update rolled out it was reported that a larger rewrite of the algorithm was expected in the months ahead, as opposed to the annual affair Google likes to make out of these things. Instead of a “rewrite”, we’re getting a live script that will optimize and run along through the remainder of our days, it seems. The implications for your online business are as clear as day, your backlink profile will need to be squeaky clean from hereon in. So, how do you go about this? Let’s take a look.
