Google Manual Actions Report Back In Webmaster Tools

Aug 12, 2013 - 8:25 am 6 by

Google Webmaster ToolsFriday we reported that Google launched manual actions within Webmaster Tools, which basically shows you in almost real time if you have any manual actions against your web site.

Shortly after, Google had to take down the tool because of some issue. Well, the feature is now back as of this morning.

Google's Matt Cutts wrote on Friday afternoon:

Unfortunately we've hit a snag during our feature deployment, so it will be another couple days before the feature is available to everyone. We will post another update once the feature is fully rolled out.

But like I said, now it is back, at least for me.

And it does indeed seem to work.

A client of mine had a manual penalty on or before Friday, submitted a reconsideration request and the request came back as a revocation of the penalty on Saturday. Today, the tool shows no manual action for this client.

Anyway, go ahead, check to see if you have a manual penalty.
