As the authoritative search engine, Google sets the standards for intending to provide the most accurate search online. Developers worldwide have been anxiously awaiting Google’s latest release in a series titled Google Penguin 3.0 to determine how the search engine conglomerate will rank websites based on previous changes made to website-to-website relationships and site authority. As of Friday, October 17, Google began the roll-out of this major refresh impacting a reported 1% of queries. Google reports the roll-out will continue over the next few weeks and website Owners will only continue to see fluctuation in ranking .
Penguin 3.0 delivers no surprises to the search engine community. Termed a “refresh,” Google simply re-ran its algorithm to allow any sites that ditched poor or non-credible links to comply with Google's guidelines. The intent of the refresh is to identify websites that use manipulative, low value content and misleading tactics to gain ranking in queries. Many websites will be impacted depending on the sources of how a website is paired to other websites online.

Penguin 3.0 rewards sites that have meaningful, relevant external website relationships to other websites sharing mutual or niche content. The stronger these connections and the more authority the external website value has on subject matter, the better the ranking. Websites employing sneakier tactics, like linking to outbound commercial, spammy websites, have been penalized and will continue to lose ranking with this latest Google refresh. Because this is the third installment of Penguin to hit the search engine, most credible sites have already been impacted and corrected up to this point.
While there is no short-term fix to a site that has experienced an extreme drop in ranking, website owners can correct the situation over time.
