Understanding The Reconsideration Request via Matt Cutts

Penalized sites get removed from the SERP’s. Google has been fair to such webmasters and has allowed them a way to get back into the search engine index.

Notes from the video:

  • The response to the RR is really just a yes or a no.
  • Google is working on becoming more transparen
  • They are working on giving more examples in the messages

Does this help you understand the RR process much better?
