Though I am fkn bizzy at the moment, I wanted to share: "Good news! Your reconsideration request has been approved and Google has removed any manual action on your site. Bear in mind that removal of a manual action doesn’t guarantee that your site’s ranking will increase. " Bought some site that "seemed" clean. but must have been abused somehow. I got it back. cat background, unique HQ article, video and must have done the trick. still, somehow I cant shake the feeling it is flagged SO, to sum it up: it took appprox 2 weeks.
