September 23, 2016 – A date which will be remembered by the digital world for years to come because that’s when Google announced Penguin 4.0 – the real-time update.
Most of the businesses mourned over it, especially the e-commerce brands because the update came around the same time as the peak shopping season that entails in the last three months of the year.
Just imagine, your rankings taking a serious hit and your main keywords dropping significantly in the SERPs.
Feels like HELL!
The same was the case for brands all across the world, and as a result, they were deprived of the fruitful results of the seasonal sales.
To avoid such penalties in the future it’s important to learn and strategize the overall link building campaign for the years ahead.

Before 4.0 if an SEO knew that there were problems with their client’s sites or that they had been using questionable tactics, they had a window of time to get their act together because Google had to re-crawl everything.
This is really the way things should be because those search marketing professionals (and site owners) that are doing things correctly get to reap the benefits for themselves and their clients right away.
As for link building techniques, that folks should be focused on in 2017, I would say that aspect of things hasn’t really been changed by the 4.0 update.
