Well, it’s survival of the fittest! During academic examinations, we were tested how far we have gone with a certain course we were taking! Somehow, after we stepped out from our Alma Mater, we would joyfully say it’s over. No, it’s not! The real test is out here. As bloggers, the Google Penguin Update that has been rolling out in the month of April was just like a Dean’s exam… it’s not easy for sure. But, if we have been preparing ourselves, it’s not that terrible.
