The main purpose of penguin was to capture spam websites. The spammy websites will be penalized. Penguin 3.0 was the next update and this was launched in the year 2014. In order for websites to be free when captured by the penguin 3.0, they must wait for two years. Now, these long delays are a thing in the past.

The regular process of Penguin is that it will capture and also release the web pages. Penguin 4.0 is now more specific regarding web pages. The new Penguin is more granular. Which means it affects more finer granularity than websites. And this does not necessary mean that it will only affect web pages. The new Penguin only affects a certain page or website.
