    I am pretty sure the definition is defined in the title “Reconsideration Request”. Therefore I will assume you have had poor luck with it. It’s actually a really great tool. If your “Seo Foundation” is built on sand though it might make this tool pretty ominous. Anyway, its great for reconsideration after a malware attack, a poorly devised strategy, or even when recovering from old techniques suddenly getting targeted by the latest algorithm updates. The bad part of it, is you have this reward hanging on string in front of you, and sometimes it can be hard to determine the means to obtain that reward.

    Nice post! it’s really great to know that Googlers are reviewing each reconsideration request manually which is really needed. All points must be considered while submitting the reconsideration request. I must say really a powerful tool to let the Google know after cleaning your bad backlink profile.

    Cheers!

    Google has said do not submit reconsideration request unless you have a manual penalty applied to your site. Not sure what Barry Schwartz is talking about.

    If your site was hit in the last penguin 2.0 update only thing to do is work on your link profile and pray. I did submit one minor site of mine to Google and they wrote me back saying nothing they can do, as their was no manual penalty placed on my site.

    Submitting a recon request when there is no penalty letter seems pointless to me. If its an algo penalty then you should just cleanup your back links surely.

    I recommend reading the original blogpost carefully; there are some oversimplifications here. Particularly regarding the order of the removals and the manual review of every request.

  • Miguel Silva Rodrigues

    only requests where manual action has been taken at some point

    Indeed. Although if someone didn’t yet register their site at Google Webmaster Tools, then they might have missed a notification about a manual action being taken, in which case the immediate submission a reconsideration request will let them know if manual action has been taken.

    There’s one exception: if someone didn’t yet register their site at Google Webmaster Tools, then they might have missed a notification about a manual action being taken, in which case the immediate submission a reconsideration request will let them know if manual action has been taken.
