Google officially announced that they released a new link spam update, that we reported on here.
They also explained that it would take approximately two weeks to completely roll out, but it appears it is not entirely done yet.
Google’s original announcement included a reminder on links that qualify to be on Google and their latest link spam update:
On Twitter, Barry Schwartz asked whether or not the update has completed rolling out yet, and Danny Sullivan confirmed that it has not. See their exchanges below:
Also, see this conversation:
Based on Google’s responses, it looks like it is taking at least twice as long to roll out than initially predicted, if not more.
While there has been an unconfirmed algorithm update as of this past week or so, it’s difficult to figure out whether or not this update is in any way related to the link spam update.
It is also quite possible that, even with another update brewing, we are seeing the tail end of the link spam update.
It’s too early for any predictions yet, and it’s likely that we still have another week to go.
As always, we will continue to keep you updated.
