Answer: At least one time per day.
There were over 400 updates in 2012!
However, sometimes there’s a BIG update….and the next one is coming soon.
Tip for preparing your home care website for the upcoming Penguin 2.0 Update:
- Analyze and clean-up your link profile. First and foremost, Penguin update combats spammy and low-quality backlinks.
The new Penguin version is expected to use even more sophisticated techniques to spot spammy links in your backlink profile, so even if your backlinks seem quite OK for Google right now, you’d better run another thorough audit before Penguin 2.0 arrives.
So the first thing to do now is to analyze your site’s backlinks, identifying any potentially spammy links and getting rid of them before the update.
The basic rule here is to avoid backlinks that:
- Come from sites built exclusively for the purpose of SEO.
- Use overly-optimized anchor text.
- Come from adult or other “bad neighborhood” websites.
- Come from sites that are irrelevant to your own.
