Re: I'm working on google penguin update but keyword ranking dropped why?

Most likely, with Google Penguin, your rankings dropped because of the anchor text links that are pointing to your site. You most likely have too many exact anchor text links with your keyword(s) pointing to your web site.

It will take some time for the site's links to be worked out by the algorithm. Without knowing your site's URL and without taking a look at it there's not much you can say about why rankings have changed.

With your 40 percent, you may need to actually reduce that number even more--and it would depend on the sites linking to you and their authority, etc.
