Dear BHW members, I think there may be a fair few of you who have recovered from a manual Google action, so I have a question for you. Some background - I want to purchase a domain but I know for a 100% fact it has both had a manual penalty against it and then received notice that the penalty has been rescinded. The domain is an EMD and is my 1st choice to build upon, 3X the search traffic of the nearest comparable & brandable. It is a decent size investment so I do not want to buy a turkey. My question is, even when you have recovered from a Google penalty did you still get the feeling the domain had a black mark against it in terms of where it ranked for various search terms? I am particularly interested in hearing from anyone who may have purchased a domain with an action against it, not realizing, and then submitted a reconsideration request and built upon the domain. Any advice appreciated.
