The word is going around that Google did an algorithm update in the beginning of February. Most tracking tools are showing signs of a recent update. But most white hatters are not experiencing big fluctuations.
At the blackhat forums however, they are talking about it a lot, and they labeled it an update that target PBNs, private blog networks.
So it might very well be a link based algorithm change. But Google keeps quite as usual. They never want to talk about Penguin related stuff and blackhat techniques in public.
Personally, I do hope it’s a Google Penguin tweak or another link based change. Because most of us already know that the new Penguin 4.0 is not bulletproof: https://www.nethit.xyz/2017/01/19/keyboost-linkscheme-still-working-well-despite-penguin-4-0/
And I would love to see those ‘keyboost motherfuckers’ go down. The same goes for any other black hatter copying other peoples stuff. Let’s see who will have the last laugh. Its only a matter of time..
I am ready for the show. Bring it on, can I have some popcorn with that Google? Want to know how this ends? Follow me on Twitter and I will keep you updated..
