    Google penguin is also known as the Over Optimization Penalty. The objective of this algorithm was to gain greater control over and reduce the effectiveness of a number of black hats spamming techniques. It penalizes for the Spam or irrelevant links.

    The Penguin algorithm is a filter that sits on top of Google's regular algorithm and attempts to catch link spam. Link spam refers to the manipulative ways that spammers and black hat SEOs create links to boost their rankings in the SERPs.
