    Google Penguin now not only affects the whole site (or not). It has its impact on all levels like domain, folders, pages and probably also keywords and keyword groups. So anything that goes into the organic rankings will now be affected by the Penguin algorithm on a fine level.

    "Penguin is now real-time. Historically, the list of sites affected by Penguin was periodically refreshed at the same time. (…) With this change, Penguin's data is refreshed in real time, so changes will be visible much faster, typically taking effect shortly after we recrawl and reindex a page. It also means we're not going to comment on future refreshes."
    The “real-time feature” implies that effects of the Penguin algorithmic filter, i.e. demotions and promotions of organic rankings for a website due to link spam (unnatural links) happen faster than in the past. In the past, every Google Penguin update brought drastic changes.
    Penguin 4.0 is the last Penguin update in history. There will be no other update.

    Penguin primarily targets content that has been optimized excessively – one that has too much of poor link building technique and stuffing of keywords. The phrase keyword stuffing means using keywords that are not necessary do not occur in an organic manner or are not relevant.

    Do you even know what SEO is? Maybe it is not that you don't understand Penguin Update it is more on you don't know anything about SEO or the internet marketing as a whole?

    It is more granular in real time i.e crawling and indexing rate increases and it affects your whole site

    Google Penguin is an algorithm designed to penalize and prevent link spamming. Google introduced Penguin back in April 2012 to combat web spam and to penalize websites whose SERPs relied on exploiting “black hat” SEO tactics (e.g. keyword stuffing, link schemes, cloaking, duplicate content, etc.).

    Penguin 4.Zero has made two major changes that come as a welcome relief to many search engine marketing professionals:
    1. Penguin now runs in actual-time.
    2. Penguin is no longer a website-huge poor rating thing.
