I'd bet during the summer holidays, it would be the best way to hit hard.
How did I not see this thread earlier? Are predictions still open?
My prediction is: 6 of August
HCF - Where Every Affiliate is Happy, Calm & Focused
As far as i remember Panda was around 17. July so i'm going for the same date! 17. July 2016
Aha the holiday are coming, lets see if we nailed it or not. My penguin fish rod is ready and waiting for the first Google branded penguin that passes by to capture it and bring it to you guys so we can have a feast
Haha, I've never had Penguin before! Do you marinate it? Will the skin be very tough?
I'm surprised that it's gone this long! Just goes to show that if you have a big project in the works, you should be very careful about what you promise the public about its release date.
Sorry smartyank! I thought that was a pretty good prediction. We'll see if Pierre is right about the holidays soon!
It's August and I ain't seen hide nor hair of the Penguin update! Though there is currently a thread on the forums about a potential "Phantom" update: Google Algo Update June / July 2016
Maybe we'll be waiting until winter to see the Penguins come marching in?
Haha, I was just about to post here! I'm inclined to split it between HCFGrizzly and Pierre Benneton! Grizzly's specific prediction was closest, but if you consider the autumnal equinox a holiday then Pierre was closest!
It figures they'd release it on a Friday. I'll be creating a newsy/discussion thread in our Google Optimization section as soon as I can today.
