Submitting reconsideration request for 2 sites



7:56 am on May 7, 2014 (gmt 0)

I have 2 sites and both of them received a partial penalty under manual spam action.

I tried to remove the links as shown by the webmaster account and submitted the reconsideration request and it was denied for both sites, TWICE.

Now I have been trying to remove all the back links in past 3-4 months. I purchased a tool subscription to find more incoming links that were not visible in the webmaster account. I have been sending emails to webmasters to remove my links.

To ensure that the reconsideration team if they may want to check whether or not I have sent the emails, can check it through a ticket no. which is mentioned against each link in a xls and simultaneously has been used in the email as subject of the relevant message.

My plan is to send the xls and login credentials of the gmail account I used for removing links along with my reconsideration request.

I'm done now and would be submitting the reconsideration request again.

My doubt is that I have used only one email account to send messages to webmasters to remove my link for BOTH sites.

And therefore I would need to send the login credentials of the same account in both site's reconsideration request.

Could this effect my chances of coming out of penalty for either or both sites?

Have you thought about disavowing the links? I would disavow links before handing over the email login.

Yes I have disavowed the links for both the sites on last week Saturday. However being the login credentials same for both the sites would in anyway effect my chances of coming out of penalty?

Personally I think partial ban or some manual spam actions are one of the big problems created by Google company.

Now do not you feel it is hard to find irrelevant links which were relevant some years back.

Disavow tool, you can use tool but it will take months for you to remove links, in the mean time your business will come to an end.

Yes I have kind of 10K links out of which many are returning Internal Server error, some are returning 404, I have been able to remove around 50% of links and still trying. I have submitted the disavow list and is now submitting the reconsideration request.

Since both sites received a manual penalty at the same time, I'd guess that the chances are Google already knows the 2 sites are related or owned by the same person (not that there's anything wrong with that, necessarily). So you're unlikely to be making things any worse by having used the same email account for both sites.

Working on the assumption that they already know the two sites are related somehow, I'd take the time to make sure there are no issues there with regards to the way the two sites link together, as that could also be a contributing factor to the penalty.

Good luck with the recon!
