    One question, the only way to fix the thin content penalty, is to request a manual review via webmaster tools? (after fixing the site, of course)

    I have read on another site that someone fix the thin penalty, adding more content, and after 1 week the thin content message got removed automatically.

    However, when I read official help in webmaster tools, it says that you need to manually submit a reconsideration request, because it needs to be removed manually.

    Any ideas about this?

    Thx!

    i think that it's better to fix your website and add some content and then send them a reconsideration message :p why would you wait for the penalty message to disappear all alone while you can notify them that you've fixed the problems

    I have also read that if they reject the reconsideration request, you can't submit another one.

    Obviously, I will be convinced that I did the proper changes and they will re-accept the site.

    However, we can never know for sure. That would be the case where my question comes into play.

    Just really review your site and take care of all of the pages that have little to no original content. Start adding content and then file a reconsideration request.

    I haven't heard of removing the penalty without a reconsideration request but then again this seems to be something that could easily be automated. Who knows.

    Yeah, You needs to be submit reconsideration request. But, before that you have to make some changes by adding new original contents to your site with videos, infographics, real reviews and other value added informations. Then, share those newly uploaded contents in social media. After that submit the reconsideration request.

    Three of my finance affiliate sites got the 'thin content' manual penalty a couple of days ago.

    Removed some inner pages that had the same setup:
    - Built to rank long tails
    - Tables with loads of affiliate links

    Just wanted to hear if you submitted a reconsideration request and if you have heard something?

    Add some more content and then submit for re-consideration.
