Hey Relax folks! The Google change this past weekend was just a core update, nothing penguin related.
Gary Illyes from Google said on Twitter this morning that the weekend fluctuations were “core algorithm” and “not Penguin.”
Many webmasters are waiting for a Google Penguin update, and we are expecting it to happen early this year. So when we see major fluctuations, some are quick to say it is Penguin.
But Google is telling us this is not Penguin but rather just common core ranking algorithm updates.
