Google Reconsideration Request Rejections May Include More Details

Google Webmaster Tools - Facebook FeaturedGoogle’s Matt Cutts, the head of search spam, announced at SMX Advanced that they are updating how they handle reconsideration rejection requests with more details from Google Search Quality analysts.

That means when a Google search quality representation reviews and responds to a reconsideration request with a rejection notice, that Google representative has a new box where they can enter more details.

Hasn’t Google provided more detailed responses to webmaster who have submitted these requests? Yes. Matt Cutts explained they have offered a couple link examples for link issues and general categorization for other issues but now they are going to offer more.

Specifically, it seems that part of the internal reconsideration request response on Google’s end will prompt Googlers to type out specific advice or recommendations for the webmaster.

So webmasters should expect to get more specific and detailed responses starting today from their reconsideration requests.

Update: Here is a screen shot of the new rejection notices.
