    the 16th of june, i received this notice:



    I believe this penalty was applied because i had 17 files on my website sharing the exact same content. they were all either removed or given unique and original content. i submitted a reconsideration request.

    Today i have received this response:

    Still no movements in the serp, all my keywords which were ranking in top 5 prior to the penalty are still in the fifties.
    can i expect changes in a few days or are penalties usually removed instantly, thus meaning i am still penalized?

    UPDATE: all my keywords are now in the top 15. They used to be in the top 5 before, hopefully they will climb back to what they used to be.

    However, this confirms me the penalty was lifted.
