Reconsideration request approved: Search Engine Land’s ultimate guide to Google penalties and messages
Google’s manual penalty removal triggers a short, uniform reconsideration request approved notification. Aside from mentioning that the penalty has been lifted, this notification makes it clear that coming back into compliance with Google Webmaster Guidelines does not necessarily mean that your site will experience improved rankings in organic Google Search. The site may grow in visibility, stagnate or drop.
There’s no further action required once this message is received, other than focusing on users and the core of the website activity again. It is the best possible outcome to be expected.
