 Google Penguin Update Is Still Awaited

Google Penguin update which was expected to release in End of 2015 as was confirmed and later delayed due to the holiday season in December is still awaited by webmasters.

This version of the Penguin algorithm is expected to be real time.This Implies that as soon as Google discovers that a link is removed or disavowed, the Penguin algorithm will process it in real time, and you would be able to recover from a Penguin penalty incredibly quickly.
