Originally I had wrote a post that covered both the history of the messages and a collection of replies to various reconsideration requests. It became quite evident that it was going to be a bit much for a single post, so this is part II of the series.

You can find Part I here;

Again, the goal here is really about keeping a running record of the various messages and replies from Google. Over time we can learn from them and hopefully help some folks when they get the urge to freak out.

Yes, it sucks. Yes... getting one is never fun. But it does happen and it happens a lot. Hell, it's been the cornerstone of a lot of my SEO consulting work over the last few years. When things go wrong, they seek out the fixer!

Anyway, I figured it was time that I had somewhere to keep my collection of various manual actions and reconsideration request replies for all time. Something to refer to for relevance and history. So here we go.....

Not sure if you have a manual penalty? Try out this new tool from Google.

Interestingly enough I was sitting here writing about Google's manual actions. A two part series actually on the types of actions and a history of replies from Google. Then, because the SEO Dojo chat room is soooooo awesome, one of our uber geeks, Wissam Dandan, passed me this;

While they are still going to be sending out messages on manual actions, this tool can be used for a quick real time check on a domain. The tool breaks things down into;

Yup it's true, we started a little experiment last week by doing the show LIVE over on Google Plus Hangouts. We enjoyed it so much, we're going to be doing it that way moving forward.

The Regulators

Yes, we'll still be doing it in podcast version as well... so if you listen to the show here on the site or via iTunes, no worries, we'll still be doing that as well. We've simply added to the format.

One of our members, Doc Sheldon of Top Shelf Copy, was noting on the boards that there's some changes (apparently?) to the Google Help docs on "Link Schemes". While I have no idea what's new or added, I did find a post from July, a thread on WMW from Oct. 2012. If anyone has a running tab on changes to this page, please do let me know.

As a guy that does a lot of forensic consulting, including Penguin and Unnatural Links issues, it seems this page is a bit of a blueprint as far as what might be causing you grief.

Hey gang, just a quick update to let you know about some things we've been changing with the Friday chat sessions.

For starters, about a month ago we started doing them live, via Google Hangouts. This seemed like a natural evolution from the previous text chat's on Skype. Sure, you can still drop in there and engage during the sessions, we've just stepped it up some.

Over the last week or so I have been out and about posting and yakking... A LOT. No really, even for me. It's all just kinda nutty when I look at it in aggregate. Anyway, for those interested....

Here's the trail;

Writing

As always I have been writing stuff, but over the last week or so I seemed to be going a little mental with it. Some days I just can't stop the voices, so I hafta let it out!

Hey gang, Dave here with a bit of an update. For those paying attention you may have noticed we're branching out in a few directions lately;

New Google Webmaster Tools section

Over in the Study Hall, we recently started adding some content in the form of a series on Google Webmaster tools. We covered these in a recent Friday Chat session and now we're going to publish what we learned.
