In the recent #AskGoogleWebmasters YouTube series, John Mueller of Google has shared his advice on webspam manual actions and reconsideration requests.

In this video, John said that if your website is flagged as spam and you have no idea on how to deal with a webspam manual action then it’s strongly recommended to visit webmaster help forums to get advice from peers.

So, once you are in the webmaster help forum make sure to provide all the information you have about your website and try to explain the original issue, describe actions taken to clean up and be honest about what happened so far without hiding anything. John has also asked webmasters to not take suggestions personally as they might be harsh.

And finally, after doing the significant changes to your website, submit a reconsideration request to Google. Here you need to make sure that the request contains detailed information about the changes you have made and a link to the forum thread.

As these requests are reviewed by Google webspam team, John has advised webmasters to be clear about what you submit without overloading it with unnecessary details.
