    After the first penalty I got from Google from having bad quality content on my site I remove all the old content from the pages and rebuild the whole site again. I check for the bad links and other stuff that violates Google webmaster guidelines and everything looks fine.


    I don?t know where I went wrong this time but after reconsideration I still got the next message:

    Dear site owner or webmaster of mydomain. com


    We received a request from a site owner to reconsider mydomain. com for compliance with Google's Webmaster Guidelines.


    We've reviewed your site and we believe that some or all of your pages still violate our quality guidelines.


    In order to preserve the quality of our search engine, pages from mydomain .com
    may not appear or may not rank as highly in Google's search results, or may otherwise be considered to be less trustworthy than sites which follow the quality guidelines.


    Any suggestions or any help with this will be highly appreciated.. Thanks!!

    Peter,

    Aside from clearing up the content and the links, have you done anything with the structure of the site that may be causing issues.

    i.e. temporary redirects, 404s, poor site navigation, etc can all contribute to issues why they would not rank your site.

    If it was penalized with Penguin, then many cases it is just easier to deindex the content and once it is removed from the search engines, start it all over on a new domain... Do not just redirect to the new domain, otherwise you will pass the penalty onto the new domain.

    Hope that helps!

    Did you 301 redirect to preserve the age or send spammy links its way? How unique was the content?
