All right, you made me look:-) No change for my site that just reported no manual penalty.
Happened the same way for us back in 2005. Hopefully you should be good until update Elephant, Rhino, Polar Bear or whatever comes next...
I found it most strange. I guess not many others did :D
What changes did you make prior to submitting your reconsideration request, and did you make further changes while awaiting their response?
Also, perhaps you coincidentally cross a 90-day penalty expiration around the same time as their response.
I also found in Google forum people that says that google team gives the standard message "some or all of your pages still violate our quality guidelines" as a kind of an auto message that remains until a time period (45 / 90 / 180 days) after you clean the site...
People, what do you think about?
People say all kinds of things. I wouldn't put too much credence in that.
|I'm pretty sure they didn't update the algorithm for me :D |
the algorithmic penalty must have been so silly that Google must have changed the Algorithm for you!
matt cutts insists that most of the changes back are from algoritmic nature. ( if it is violating it will still be punnished)
It could be that the google person or a separate google algorithem checked your website and found it did not violate the terms. It would make sense to check by algorithem before a human would check it. THAT would result in : not a manual penalty
Saying there is no manual penalty is a bit misleading since it may very well have been a set of human evaluators that gave your site poor ratings which in turn caused the algo to slam you down 600 spots in serps. Technically not a manual penalty but sure as heck caused by manual actions...
something to share reading G Webmaster Forum
One person recieve early today a message saying that " If we don't find any problems, we'll reconsider our indexing of your site."
and later today he recieve one saying that "your site violates the quality guidelines"?
Is the first time that I see this... perhaps people more expert knows about this ...
seems that a supervisor revoke the first message of today?
. This suggest that the site is yet to be evaluated. As such if it met quality guidelines it would be indexed. Having reviewed the site it appeared that it did not meet the benchmark and as a consequence the standard template of "your site violates the quality guidelines" came into effect. In short there is nothing to support any decision being overridden.
