Google Manual Actions viewer to check manual penalty on your domain

We have got one more reason to add our websites to Google webmaster tools. Google is adding a new feature in Webmaster Tools that will leave no doubt when a site's search rankings are affected by a manual webspam action. It's called the Manual Actions viewer, and it's available under the "Search Traffic" tab.



Manual Actions viewer will show existing webspam problems under two headings: Site-wide matches and Partial matches. In both cases, Google will indicate what type of problem exists from a list of about a dozen categories — things like "hidden text and/or keyword stuffing," "thin content," "pure spam" and others.

Now no more guessing that your website is hit by a manual penalty or it is an algorithmic penalty.

I think the reason Google created this page is because the recent updates must have increased the amount of reconsideration requests they received by an extreme amount. So they've had to start giving us more information.
