SEO techniques have been changed ever since Google updated their algorithm. Google named these updates "Penguin and Panda" as Google give names to its entire product. Google failed to ignore duplicate content and over optimized websites before these updates. Many websites used to rank well in SERP even though those sites were low quality, duplicate content sharing and unnatural links pointing to those sites.

Google Panda & Penguin
In the year 2011 Google engineers successfully updated their search engine algorithm to fight with duplicate content sharing websites. This update was created and named as Panda to penalize websites with duplicate content and poor quality. This update was basically done to fight with on-page SEO technique.

In the year 2012 Google again updated its Search Engine to fight with off-page SEO Techniques. Many webmasters and SEO Experts were doing Black Hat SEO for the sake of improving their targeted keywords ranking in Search Engine. But with Penguin update, Google is easily reviewing websites and penalizing which has violated their quality guidelines by creating artificial or unnatural backlinks pointing to their sites. Websites which got unnatural links by buying or participating in links schemes. Google is just penalizing these websites by dropping their ranking and/or washing out these sites from search engine. So, if you have seen drops in your ranking go check in your webmaster if your website have been a victim of Penguin. You can do this check by submitting a reconsideration request in webmaster. If you get a below message this means you have been penalized for unnatural links pointing to your website.
