Google Launches New Reconsideration Request Process

Brian Fontana Quote

For those that missed it, Google’s Matt Cutts announced at SMX last week that rejections received by webmasters submitting re-inclusion requests may now provide more helpful data. Although not every request will include more precise information as to why a request was rejected, there is now an area for the Google team to provide feedback and note other areas that may have been overlooked in a back link review.


Since the inception of Penguin based penalties, there’s been a lot of talk in the SEO community over where Google’s responsibilities lie in providing webmasters with all the information needed to have them lifted. Depending on the type and severity of the penalty, the re-inclusion process if often quite lengthy, this latest addition will hopefully be a step in the right direction for webmasters that have largely been left in the dark.
