    Google Penalty just disappeared!


    Hi All,

    I have just logged into my WMT area to have a good look around and noticed that my site was not rooted to the bottom of the list when sorted by health. I had a good look around and clicked on the 'Manual Actions' and i was very shocked to see the words 'No Manual Webspam Actions Found'. WOW! YAY!!!!

    I have been trying for over 12 months to get this removed and was about to pay someone to start seeing what they could do to help. I have already seen an increase in some page listings which is great.

    How would this have happened?? I havent done any work on any links recently and havent submitted any requests for reconsideration. Has any one else had any joy like this?

    Many thanks

    Paul

    You must have done something as you claim to have been trying over 12 months to get the penalty removed. Did you submit a reconsideration request? or get links removed?

    Congrats on getting things cleared up anyway.

    Manual penalties expire.
    ....and can be reapplied.

    Yup. All manual penalties expire. But...make sure that you've done a complete cleanup because if you get revisited by the webspam team again and have another manual review you can get penalized again. When you get penalized a second time, the consequences, and the requirements for cleanup, can be more severe:

    Google Doesn't Recommend You Wait For Penalties to Expire
