The Dreaded Google Reconsideration Request Response

Jun 17, 2015 - 8:16 am 14 by

We know Google has four different types of reconsideration responses they can send, so when Marie Haynes posted an example of a new one on Twitter, she was confused.

Here is the message her penalty client received (she works with penalties):

Dreaded Google Reconsideration Request Response

This one is similar to the fourth listed, the dreaded one, where Google says they processed your reconsideration request, but there still may be a manual action. We said back then:

Google processed your reconsideration request, which means, you are between numbers two and three. Google needs to look deeper and maybe you resolved some things but not all things. Maybe Google found something interesting they want to look deeper into.

John Mueller responded on Twitter basically saying what Matt said, here are John's replies:

Marie said this one is different than the "we've processed" manual action she is accustomed to. But it seems like it may just be slightly different wording than the normal kind.

Either way, these are known as the dreaded reconsideration request responses because you don't really know what to do after you get such a response.
