    Finally I got this message, was fighting for it more than 2 years, disavowing links little by little. I wish success to everyone who still fighting, keep it up and one day you'll get this great news:

    We received a reconsideration request from a site owner for http://www.moneyblowers.com/.
    Previously the webspam team had taken action on your site because we believed it violated our quality guidelines. After reviewing your reconsideration request, we have revoked this action.
    You can use the Manual Actions page in Webmaster Tools to view actions currently applied to your site. It may take some time before recent updates to your site's status are reflected on this page and in our search results.
    Of course, there may be other issues with your site that could affect its ranking. Google determines the order of search results using a series of computer programs known as algorithms. We make hundreds of changes to our search algorithms each year, and we employ more than 200 different signals when ranking pages. As our algorithms change and as the web (including your site) changes, some fluctuation in ranking will happen from time to time as we make updates to present the best results to our users.
    If your site continues to have trouble in our search results, please see our Help Center for help with diagnosing the issue.
    Thank you for helping us to maintain the quality of search results for our users.

    I strongly recommend you remove your site's url immediately, otherwise you might end up with another manual action.

    Glad you got the penalty removed but a couple of things about that...

    1. 2 years of work was it worth it or just move on to another site?
    2. Remove your link :)

    Again congratz

    According semrush, your site (if this is your site) have manual penalty from Jun 2013 (deindexing possibly). Than July 2013 it have small jump.

    Hey, grim - this is less than year! Are you forum link builder?

    Concerning 2 years fight, yes it worth it! Harder the fight, better you feel when you won it.
    I never wanted to move to a new domain, first of all this is brand name, second of all it still was functioning and getting traffic from other pages and other language versions. And the main reason I stood is that I wanted to win it and learn from it. This is huge experience, sending reconsideration requests back and forth, and yes you may get sick of it, but this is examination of your guts.
    I started fighting for it before disavow tool was made (Semruch is for losers), just before first Penguin came out, so I was sending requests just trying to explain myself to the Google Spam Team that I'm a good guy and have quality, unique and useful content that helps users, but no one listened to me there (naive kiddo))). Never the less disavow links work perfect, I was able to remove just few links, other than that I have disavowed few thousands and it worked, maybe on 5th or 6th time. I have left just natural links and from high quality sites with naked url links. Most of reach anchor text links I had to disavow.
    Never the less its a great filling to get free.

    I wish you all who still hustle, to keep fighting and one day to get this awesome message from Google.

    Congrats, hopefully the improvements in your traffic and rankings justifies the efforts you put on this reinclusion .. it will be great if you shared some data before the recovery and after, have you seen any traffic or rankings improvements?

    Thank you. I did't notice any traffic improvement.
    First what is happened is huge drop in traffic (when I got penalized), later I discovered that my homepage excluded from search but my inner pages started ranking for same KWs so I started to promoting them, but when site manually penalized there is some restrictions occur, so SEO doesn't work the same way and only harm pages. So I had to remove manual action first to be able to move further.

    While I was disavowing links traffic went down about 50% (from Google) because of lose of juice.

    Now I will give a little time and later will see how it reacts to SEO.

    Thank you all for good wishes.

    Congrats on your small success. Personally I don't think it's worth trying to recover, as building up another website under a different domain would be much quicker. Could you provide us with some data - rankings, traffic chart?

    Thank you all for good wishes.
    I have explained above about rankings and traffic. I will update here later when I will get any changes in rankings or traffic and would come to some conclusions.

    All the best to haters.
