So got a manual penalty on a 3 year authority site. So i removed some links and sent a reconsideration request. They denied it saying that the site violates G's quality guidelines! WTF I wrote every article and they super high quality all over 500 words. The site has like 70 pages and I dont even write the articles with seo in mind as it is for my offline business, so I am not even trying to rank any of them. I have no idea what to do, I really dont want to lose this site but it looks like I really dont have a choice. Im now convinced that those manual reviewers do not have a clue what they are doing. Take home message: Dont use SAPE on your money sites. Knew it was a fuckin bad idea. Not even one month in got hammered now this is a huge pain in the ass.
