Has Google ever definitively stated that it is possible to recover from Penguin?2 Recommended Answers
Also I can say easily some sites that don't update often and don't look interesting rank higher than me since being Penguin hit and the site hasn't recovered yet. A lot of sites seem to be in this situation also.
Also a few reasons it seems that a Penguin update would be fair is that there is the topic of negative seo going on now so technically the disavow tool seems like the way to combat that. There were some articles that have came out in the news talking about it. It's messed up but if someone wants to spam someones site now they can hire so called negative seo services.
If Google ditched Penguin algorithm then arguably a lot of penalized sites that have top quality content and user experiences, and didn't intentionally do black hat seo, in other words sites that cleaned their act after being aware of the Penguin updates, would have a chance at recovery.
If it takes a month or three with an update that would be fair, if sites that were hit can get a fair shot. Especially when they really are putting out what could be some of the most relevant material and best user experience to their niche. On Bing and Yahoo my site ranks on top and it did on Google till their penalties hit us, and since then we have disavowed everything questionable and deleted whatever bad links possible, and we also have some fair natural links as well.
