Google Reinclusion Request Approval Times

Oct 14, 2008 - 8:00 am 8 by

PollThe other day, I held a poll asking SEOs how long it typically took for their sites to be reincluded into the Google index after submitting a reconsideration request. We have complied 72 responses and I thought I share the results.

As I thought, the responses are really all over the place. Let me break them down for you.

Google Reinclusion Took Me... :: More Than Three Months said 18 respondents or 25% :: 1 Week To 3 Weeks said 12 respondents or 17% :: A Month said 12 respondents or 17% :: A Few Days said 11 respondents or 15% :: A Week said 6 respondents or 8% :: Three Months said 6 respondents or 8% :: Other... said 4 respondents or 6% :: Two Months said 3 respondents or 4%

Other responses were from "never" to "8 months" to "still waiting."

Forum discussion continued at WebmasterWorld.
