    Hi,
    I got a warning a few days ago from Webmaster tools and a few days after a specific keyword and a specific url of my site disappear from Google (used to rank 2nd). Fortunetly i got punished only for one url and not the whole website.

    My question is:
    Should i forget about the penaltized Page and start SEO to another one in order to rank the new one again? Or is there anything i can do to retain back to rankings from the penaltized one?

    I already submit reconsideration and removed a few backlinks i could

    The warning:

    We encourage you to make changes to your site so that it meets our quality guidelines. Once you've made these changes, please submit your site for reconsideration in Google's search results.

    If you find unnatural links to your site that you are unable to control or remove, please provide the details in your reconsideration request.

    Penguin certainly hit only specific urls (inner pages) on my sites, or, specific keywords. I haven't found confirmation yet if it is the url that is slapped, it's going to be easy for me to create a new page and seo the keyword back to position one. If the keyword is penalised or filtered site wide, for my ecommerce site, it's harder to recover....and would it apply to a sub domain if site wide.

    Was it page-specific?
