Algorithm Penalization vs Manual Penalization martinacastro msg:4371061 2:36 pm on Oct 5, 2011 (gmt 0) A question for the more experts For example, I have a site with a minus 50 penalization, and this penalization perhaps is automatic for duplicate content or thin affiliate. If I decide to make a reconsideration request, what happens if my penalization is algorithmical but someone in Google sees something else wrong in the site and decides to make a manual penalization? I will have both penalization? algoritmic penalization and manual or they switch to manual?

If Google eyes are looking at your site they reserve the right to adjust it manually or algorithmically so it's always a risk to draw the attention of those eyes, imo. If you know you have a penalty there is more to gain than lose, just be sure it's a penalty first. Panda's bite can be worse than a penalty.

I have a feeling that for algorithmic penalties, like Panda, you will get an automatic canned message. It doesn't take much to write a script that check for MANUAL penalties and if none is found, send the no penalties message. conroy msg:4371157 5:20 pm on Oct 5, 2011 (gmt 0)
Yes, sites hit by panda only will get an automatic message saying no manual penalty is found when you apply for reinclusion, and they will not be manually reviewed. If there is a manual penalty you won't receive any message until they review your site. Then they will tell you that you have a manual penalty and good luck.

How long does it take typically to get an answer?
