This is really interesting, there is a new Manual Actions tab in Google Webmaster tools and what is cool about this is that if your site has had manual action taken against it, then it will tell you. And guess what, my site has had manual action taken against it. I never thought this was the case and I always thought I had received algorithmic penalties. [video=youtube_share;7Y74Op_k6UY]http://youtu.be/7Y74Op_k6UY[/video] I requested a review and hopefully I will get the manual action removed. When I stopped link building b/c of Panda and Penguin like penalties I had around 15,000 links in GWT and now I have around 2,400. Some of the links I was able to get removed, other links I removed through the google disavow link tool and others were just lost through attrition so hopefully a reconsideration request will help.
