    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.

    I'm so sorry to hear that, you said that you wrote all the articles but how did you submit them ? Seems that you use SAPE for money site and you got caught - they even did human verification over your backlinks if you got that "site violation".
    About the guys that are writing manual reviews - they just want to take your money - most of them have no clue what they are talking about.
    As a small clue: did you check your late backlink activity ? maybe you just got hammered by some competition blast with negative SEO and "XXX" backlinks - check it.
    All the best

    Same problem with "violates G's quality guidelines" ... full bull shit. I got a Review Site. Every Review is unique, readable, with a test. Ranked 2 Years... and now, bam.

    I Love Google.. allways the same shit.

    As you said you did some sape links ( from your Take home message) ...you are bound to see that ..but even if you had not done that, it was never certain that you were not going to receive that message from them..

    homey sorry this is how it is these days.

    the best course of action is to hire a professional link removal service, the two my friends are using are removeem and linkdelete

    otherwise do it yourself. but be prepared for a long ass road ahead as removing links is a huge pain in the ass.

    got questoins i can try and help, ive helped out a few friends so far with stratgies.

    Well then its a really, really big coincidence that my site lasted for 3 years without anything then about 25 days into sape it gets hit. I cant be sure but Id bet on it.

    As they are sape links, they will be rented and the effects hopefully wear off over time. Just leave you site and don't do anything with it, or keep doing what you were before if that was just natural link building from quality sources.

    Sorry to hear you joined onto sape just as it got slapped but just keep pushing forward.

    SAPE links aren't bad. They're actually pretty amazing - but - from personal experience at least - don't expect them to keep you ranked long term. You can use SAPE links to bank thousands in a month, then trash it and make a new site. SAPE links, like all forms of backlinks, have their purpose. Just learn how to use them.

    Ya i agree with that. Should not of used on my offline business authority site. Also within that month those links never moved my site in a relatively low comp niche, so not worth it. On a good note its been over a month and my site is still at #5 for all keywords. Maybe it will just stay there lol.

    It's you OFF page seo which is the problem! Not the content. You have to start cleaning your blackhat links IF YOU CAN.

    Well yes thats what i said. Sape. So why would they now say it doesnt meet with their quality guidlines instead of an unnatural link penalty. Why did this change?

    I agree with this, Long ago i spent all my time and money whitehat(so called SEO), google started treating my sites very bad after a while, now i follow the exact strategy you mentioned im doing better than ever.

    I agree it hard to see your site got slapped, its time to move on with new site than working on that site

    Cheers
