Google updated its Penguin algorithm for the 5th time and named it Penguin 2.1. According to Matt, the change is going to affect about 1% of searches to a noticeable degree.

Penguin was first implemented by Google on April 24, 2012 affecting about 3% search queries to fight web spam.

Penguin basically was released to fight with Keyword Stuffing, Black hat link building techniques and Copied Contents.
