    I had a subpage on my website - like http://mywebsite.com/subpage

    I ordered link building services here directly for the subpage and a couple of months later I got a manual action taken on me from Google and lost my rankings. I deleted the page of my website and submitted a reconsideration request. A few weeks later they said the manual action was revoked. Then I completely revamped my website with a newer theme, better SEO, and optimized that same exact keyword for my homepage instead. It's been a week and I'm not showing up in the SERPS at all. It's only a 90,000 exact match keyword, and I optimized the hell out of it on the content on my homepage (not overuse though). Plus I have some high quality genuine links pointing to my homepage with similar anchors to that keyword.

    Do you think even though they said they revoked the manual action that they still have "eyes on me" and are making it harder for me to rank for that same keyword even though it's not my homepage and not the page I deleted?

    I would have bought a new domain and 301 the old one, you can never be too sure.

    I had mine revoked too but still looks like there is a penalty to me it won't move.

    you lucky more then me .
    google give me replay on my reconsideration request very fast less then 24 hour . replaying my site still Violates their quality rules .
    if it not another manual action I suggest using 301 and try your best to hide your links because 99% from manual Action comes from competitions report to Google that's happened to me twice . see here

    I wouldn't be too worried yet, sometimes it can take a while for things to happen. That being said I'd still be working on something else in case you never return.
