Google can be a heartless beast. You work hard to establish your online business, you spend years gradually growing your online presence, ultimately achieving a respectable amount of traffic and revenue – and then, in the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down. You have fallen victim to the dreaded Manual Spam Action. The demigods at Google are displeased with your methods of generating visitors, and have therefore responded with thunder and lightning. Your traffic has dipped more than 90 percent, and your site has disappeared from Google’s index.
Though the storm was devastating, you picked yourself up and brushed yourself off. After a careful review of your Webmaster Tools, you determined the reasons behind Google’s wrath and subsequently took steps to make amends. Perhaps you eliminated some questionable content from your site and removed dozens of poor-quality inbound links (even though Google is annoyingly vague about which links its considers offensive). You have done everything in your power to wipe all traces of gray-hat and black-hat karma from your website, but now comes the truly hard part: Seeking Google’s forgiveness.
Reconsideration Request – Easy, Right?
If your site has become a casualty of the dreaded Manual Spam Action, the problem will not go away on its own. It’s not like receiving a Panda-era slap on the wrist, where you could clean up your site and see your traffic gradually restored. Manual Spam Action is a death sentence; it equates to unequivocal banishment from the Google index, and the only way to resurrect your site from the dead is to submit a Reconsideration Request. This is both good news and bad news. It’s good news because it provides you with the hope of a lifeline for your business; it’s bad news because there is no guarantee that Google will just let bygones be bygones.
You’ve heard it said, “The man who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.” Submitting a Reconsideration Request is not unlike pleading your case in a court of law – but in this case, the court happens to be an all-powerful search engine. Much like a client in criminal proceedings, you need a knowledgeable expert to help you make your case in the most effective way possible, thereby maximizing your chances of receiving a favorable ruling.
