Changes with Your Traffic These Past Few Weeks? Penguin 3.0 Still Rolling Out

Notice some unusual changes with your traffic these past few weeks? Expect so since Google Penguin is still rolling out and is now on its 45th day. This is one significant update since the version 2.0 last year but the precise toll on the total percentage of queries is still unclear.

This filter was designed against spammy sites in violation of Google guidelines about link-building. This filter was introduced in 2012, and now the new and improved Penguin 3.0 is said to be more efficient.

Changes with Your Traffic These Past Few Weeks? Penguin 3.0 Still Rolling Out

The concept of bringing quality content on Search Engine Results Pages rather the good SEO is the main aim of Penguin to remove webspams and sites that use black hat techniques in SEO such as cloaking, keywords stuffing, hidden texts etc. Even if a webmaster unintentionally trick users to visit their page, you might get hit by the Penguin.

October 17, 2014, when Penguin 3.0 was first launched by Google. The roll outs and changes are still unclear, and it is reported to affect only about one percent of queries.

It is possible that Google has been twerking updates constantly for flaws and glitches from the system. They might also notice that some sites are gaining more traffic due to the filter so it had to be fixed. 

Although it could cause confusion for webmasters and developers alike, the mission of Google 3.0 seemed to be for the greater good. It would be better, though, if Google would finally fix all the glitches from the system so it could be used in full operation. 

Since web marketing and advertising had been booming for the last couple of years, most bloggers and site owners struggle to keep their blogs or sites smooth and updated. The more they are attuned to the conditions of Google, the more their sites would stay on the game.

Goodbye PageRANKING Google PageRank may Officially Die

To those who are wondering what is Google PageRank, it is a link analysis algorithm that rates various websites on a logarithmic scale of 0-10 with the rating “10” being the best.

Although Google has had the habit and tradition to regularly update PageRank in the past, now might be the right time for us to move on from it, according to Google’s John Mueller.

Goodbye PageRANKING Google PageRank may Officially Die
Mueller states that the update done last December 2013 will most probably be the final one though PR was technically last updated in October 2013. The December update was, apparently, done by accident and wasn’t in the plan.


A frustrated user had asked a question as to why he could not understand why there were so many spam sites selling PR6 backlinks had not been taken care of despite having been reported to Google a multitude of times.

Mueller replied to this individual during a Hangout that there are a few things that Google had taken action on but is just not directly seen by the users. Toolbar PageRank is something that they have not updated about a year now and Mueller says they will no longer be updating it going forward. PageRank is essentially blocked from passing through sites that sell problematic links and Google has a lot of ways to recognize these links.



As an addition, Mueller also mentioned that he would go through that individual’s list of spammy sites himself to determine if he can discover and find anything that are not picked up on by Google’s algorithms.

PageRank will most probably be no longer updated according to Mueller as Google has prepared measures in place to stop do-follow backlinks from flowing the PR juice if they are placed on spammy sites.

Why did Google decide to kill PageRank anyway?

Matt Cutts mentioned last year that the next update will probably take place later in the year, seeing that Google had last updated PR in October 2013. The unplanned update, however, occurred in December 2013 when Google engineers were working on the backend and just happened to venture to make an update along the way.

A piece from the warlier reporting about Google’s announcement, earlier this year about its plan to no longer update toolbar PR stated that Google obviously thinks that the consumers do not need the latest data for publishers obsess over it so much. So they decided to pull the meter from the toolbar altogether. Why not?

Despite everything, that was what Google had said and consumers might still find it useful. On the other hand, people still need the data, though they obsess over it too much.

Therefore, Google says they are to rank websites by the use of other signals instead of PageRank as good ol’ PR might finally die and be saying ‘goodbye’ to its users for good.

MUST READ: Is Your Blog Actually Traffic Worthy?


A blog is a personal website of an individual or a group recording their own opinions, news, interests, videos or even links to other blogs. During the 1990’s, blogs are like online journals of a blogger’s interests with the aim to express oneself. However, nowadays, that is not the only game in the blogging communities; it can also be used as a part of a company, a way of business and to earn money.


Just 2 years ago, in 2012, in Wordpress.com alone, there are 42,000,000 blogs with 500,000 new posts a day and 420,000 daily comments. Which is why, to actually create something unique in the internet world is quite hard.

The question though, that stinks in every blog is— is the blog actually “traffic worthy”? Do the contents of your blog deserve to be clicked by people?

One major issue is the copyrights violation. This is when a person copies off a content of another one and to post it as his. Some bloggers discreetly post such just to have content. Originality, people, be original. It is not merely copy-pasting but you’re stealing. What is even more nerve-wrecking is that most of the time, the bloggers don’t even know if the content or the information they’re copying is actually true. This goes to many blogs nowadays, who just create “noise”, most especially in the news section unless of course, if it is a satire. Some people call the current journalism as highly biased without even knowing they are doing it themselves in their own blogs!

The next one is the scam sham- to which some people are still foolish enough to click it. One would post something online, promising something- perhaps a downloadable software, music, games or even explicit sex tapes or the classic “You are the 1,000,000th visitor. Collect your prize!” This is a cheat and smells desperation but goodness, it DOES work (well, to some people who haven’t learned a lesson anyway). If the traffic in your web page comes from misleading links, think about it a little, you’re the guy running for a place in the government promising good life but turns out to be a jerk.

The last one to be discussed is the never-ending-not-quite-original spam in the comment boxes. These are those comments which say, “Good Article,” or “Nice one,” Then pastes the link of his blog. Oh sure, did you even read the article? Even in Youtube, where vlog (video blog) are quite prosperous have these comment spams. Most bloggers are better off without those. Actual discussions of the article are quite rare nowadays which tells something.

Whether or not a blog is traffic worthy is a subjective matter. But the thing is, wouldn’t it be nice if you search keyword/s on Google, Yahoo or Bing, you’d actually see a blog worth reading? Is your blog traffic worthy? It is up to you to vote.
