Minor weather report: We pushed 1st Penguin algo data refresh an hour ago. Affects <0.1% of English searches. Context:

No major changes have been noted from webmasters on forums and webmaster communities, so it may be that a small % of sites which was penalized wrongly by Google as reported on various SEO forums or which may be big brands.

As we know that Google’s Penguin algorithm affected many sites due to low-quality links.

We can expect more such refreshes in the coming days so that Google can lift the filter from those sites which already removed bad links as reported by Google.
