    That answers a lot of questions.
    Thanks for the heads up. I guess they finally opened the cage door.

    Holy s... I'm about to have a heart attack. Seriously why can't Google make this a gradual change.

    So many businesses rely on the internet, rely on Google and stability. I hope it makes them feel great to play god.

    I'm not looking forward to the weeks of panic and speculation. Hopefully we will eventually get some people publishing good data and we will have a better idea of what needs to be done to avoid or recover from Penguin.

    I had a few clients where I had removed a manual unnatural links penalty and they had not seen a significant recovery, but now, after Penguin they are doing well, so that makes me happy.

    I had some test Penguin hit domains that were donated to me where I disavowed a whack of spammy links but I have not seen a recovery. But it's too early to tell too much yet.

    I have a question:

    Are sites "recovering" from penguin yet? It's been what a year + and I still haven't seen any real recoveries (not that I've had my ear to the ground in the seo world last few months).

    It was talked about a refresh being needed, has that been the case? have any sites "recovered" after previous penguin updates.

    Comments on this post

    We know a lot more now than we did last year at this time.

    I had a few clients where I had removed a manual unnatural links penalty and they had not seen a significant recovery, but now, after Penguin they are doing well, so that makes me happy.
    That's good to hear

    I had some test Penguin hit domains that were donated to me where I disavowed a whack of spammy links but I have not seen a recovery. But it's too early to tell too much yet.
    did you also send in a reconsider request?

    No, because there was no manual penalty.

    Hard to gauge a late afternoon/early evening launch.

    I don't see any difference on a few hundred domains I checked so far.

    They sign up for it but forget what they signed up for...and maybe tomorrow will never come. lol

    If a person disavows a bunch of links, do the links stay on the list in the GT account?
