‘Do We Still Need to Disavow in the Era of Penguin 4.0?’ – MOZ
Marie Haynes says, “It has now been six months since the launch of Penguin 4.0. In my opinion, Penguin 4.0 was awesome. It took ages for Google to release this update, but when they did, it was much more fair than previous versions of Penguin. Previous versions of Penguin would cause entire sites to be suppressed if the algorithm thought that you’d engaged in manipulative link building. Even if a site did a thorough link cleanup, the suppression would remain present until Google re-ran the Penguin algorithm and recognized your cleanup efforts.
I saw many businesses that had looooooong periods of time of suppression — even years!
According to Google spokesperson Gary Illyes, the new version of Penguin that was released in September of 2016 no longer suppresses sites”.
