Reconsideration request for Manual spam action  

Dear site owner or webmaster of, We received a 
request from a site owner to reconsider 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.
