Hi guyz, I don't open a lot of threads seeking guidance from members, but this time I've tried searching online and found no answer. I've received a "Manual Penalty" with the Mention "Pure Spam" Here is a screenshot : This is for a churn and burn website which is actually not important to me, because I could replicate what I did for ranking it with no problems. However I need to know more about this penalty. 4 days ago I ordered a fiverr gig with express delivery that built like 75k backlinks from 400 domains. The ranking went from #9 to #2 on the same day I received the report (the gig was processed in less than 1day) , but At the same Time I did some onpage changes and recrawled with googlebot and submitted to index, this was like 1hour before the rankings went from #9 to #2. (I did this because I noticed I might have been over-optimizing some elements) Is it content based ? Or is it link based ? Is it really manual or algorithmic ? Hope you guys have some experience with this situation.
