the SEO Tear Down with Scott Gombar

This week we talked about the Penguin 4.0 update and what it means to your SEO efforts.  The penguin algorithm on Google focuses on backlinks.  The last update was in December of 2014, almost 2 years ago.  That means if you were penalized 2 years ago you were only able to remove those penalties with this update.

Penguin 4.0 will become part of the Google Algorithm and will not longer be a separate entity.  That means it will now be updated more consistently with the rest of the Google algorithm.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Penguin is now part of Google’s core algorithm
  • Penalties AND recoveries are now almost instant
  • Links from PBNs, Gret Hat Links, and Aggressive Link Building will be hit the hardest.
  • This is an ongoing, real-time update
  • Stay on top of backlinks and disavow low-quality backlinks immediately

If your business is interested in featuring your site on the SEO Tear Down then contact us and we will schedule you.

Scott Gombar has spent over 20 years in the technology world. At the turn of the millenium he was the owner of a company that promoted and managed local musicians & artists. He often found himself creating websites and online profiles for the artists to help promote them and their performances.

He also coached many people on internet assets and related topics. For seven years Scott owned and ran TechsRUs; a technology support company. No matter how many times he tried to focus on the IT side of the business he was continually pulled to helping others with their websites and social media marketing. He also learned through trial and error how to market TechsRUs using the internet, and became quite good at it. Through all his attempts he gave TechsRUs the look and feel of a large corporate IT Support company while maintaining the mentality of a local small business.
