Hello BHW brother and sisters, I just checked my webmaster tools for one of my old sape sites and I saw that my manual spam penalty for unatural links has been revoked. I received the message today but am still nowhere on the serps. Any idea how long it will be before I get some sort of bounce back? Has anyone dealt with this before? Thank you for your help. S. Reconsideration request for http://www.123456789.com/: Manual spam action revoked - October 24, 2013 We received a reconsideration request from a site owner for http://www.123456789.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.
