    The Penguin Update Betting Pool


    What the heck, let's have some fun!

    Post here with the exact date that you think a Penguin update will be announced.

    I'll give 1,000 rep points to whoever's the closest. Also, you'll win the honor of being SEO Chat's unofficial "Penguin Predictor 2016" ;)

    Gary Illyes claims the update will be here within "weeks," so get your bets in soon!

    I'll say Pie Day, March 14th 2016. It's just nerdy enough to work!

    It's a complete crap shoot now, but I'm going to guess february 25, mostly because I'm speaking at SFIMA on that day and won't be able to pay close attention to what Google is doing.

    I'm not saying that Google cares at all about my thoughts on Penguin, but I just think that this would be ironic.

    March 1

    SMX West is in March: They like announcing these things over at conferences
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end

    Ignore beanstalkim. I had lost my account info but then remembered the email I'd used to set it up. So ... January 24th.

    March 1st. By the way, do you count for rep point? If so, I might modify my answer Need to find my sweet spot between other posts.

    Done and done!

    For anyone coming to this thread and seeing posts by "guest," just consider them posts by beanstalk!

    Your wager was bold, sir - but unfortunately it didn't pan out ;___;

    When Google postpones Penguin to Q2 or Q3, I suspect we'll all be in the same boat!
