Plenty of guys lost their thousands of every day traffic, because they did not comply with latest pitfalls of Google algorithm.
Did Google Penguin generate mass unemployment in India?
India and Philippians are thought about to be hub for outsourcing various tasks such as call centers, various SEO related tasks etc. from developed countries like USA and UK.

No, I don't think. google keeps updating its algorithm and everytime there's up and downs in traffic of blogs which does not mean Google Penguin created mass unemployment in India.
