    There are statistical glitches in everything, including 1 in 76,211 reconsideration requests being approved :)
    I'm pleased you were on the winning side of the equation.

    OP's website may have been unfairly penalised (possibly due to negative SEO), although we won't know the whole story unless OP tells us. :D

    I have had it work as well. I bought an aged domain with barely any links and a nice name and started making a website on it. But it just wouldn't index. Turned out it had manual spam penalty on it. Requested reconsideration and said it the way it was. 2 days later it was revoked.

    Don't know why but I only had success with reconsideration when local business websites were involved. For larger general websites never received a single response back...

    It would help if you detailed what you were penalized for and what you have done to get it revoked. And yes, congrats for being successful.

    If I get only 79 visitors a day, I would kill myself.

    Then stop posting on Black Hat World and work on the SEO for your website (or stay here, read, and learn it if you don't know how to do it). :D
