Reconsideration request for http://www.sample.com/: Manual spam action
Dear site owner or webmaster of http://www.sample.com/, We received a
request from a site owner to reconsider http://www.sample.com/ for
compliance with Google's Webmaster Guidelines.
Previously the webspam team had taken manual action on your site because we
believed it violated our quality guidelines. After reviewing your
reconsideration request, we have revoked this manual action. It may take
some time before our indexing and ranking systems are updated to reflect
the new status of your site.
Of course, there may be other issues with your site that could affect its
ranking without a manual action by the webspam team. Google's computers
determine the order of our search results using a series of formulas known
as algorithms. We make hundreds of changes to our search algorithms each
year, and we employ more than 200 different signals when ranking pages. As
our algorithms change and as the web (including your site) changes, some
fluctuation in ranking can happen as we make updates to present the best
results to our users. If your site continues to have trouble in our search
results, please see this article for help with diagnosing the issue.
Thank you for helping us to maintain the quality of our search results.
Google Search Quality Team
