Here we are sharing few tips for how to recover your website from latest Google penguin update 2.0:
1. Just Wait and Watch
Whenever Google updates any algorithm, the impact of process keep going for almost a week with fluctuations in keyword with each search you perform in Google search. So if your website hit badly and you are wondering how to recover now? Than first you need to wait for few days because you will notice keyword fluctuations going around for almost a week after each big algorithm update either panda or penguin. So just start preparing your plans to recover in this time frame and keep an eye on keyword fluctuations. Sometimes websites get back their ranking back within this time period, so just wait and watch.
2. Don’t submit your website for reconsideration
Well many experts would suggest to submit a request for Google reconsideration, but I personally would suggest not to do this, why? Because this (Penguin Update) is an algorithm update not a manual Google penalty. Google team also do not care and do not participate in reviewing reconsideration requests of websites affected by Google algorithms. If your website could have manual Google penalty than submitting Google reconsideration request could be much beneficial for you but in this case, this is not going to work for you. The only recovery is just follow what Google wants and you will be only recovered in next Google penguin update not before that by anyway. If someone says that than I suspect how much knowledge person have regarding the normal processes of Google.
3. Check your inbound and outbound links:
