Not appearing in Google’s organic search results? Not breaking Google’s website guidelines? Apply for reconsideration!




Google have been working to improve their reconsideration process for websites. Up until recently, webmasters (website administrators) could submit their website to Google for reconsideration if their website was not showing in the organic search results. They would be sent a notification when the reconsideration was received and also when it was processed, but communications stopped there. This left webmasters wondering why their site was not included and gave them no indication of how to solve the problem.

Google are now sending detailed reconsideration request responses that allows webmasters to see if they are in violation of their website guidelines. This feedback can be priceless in terms of finding out any underlying problems with your website’s structure.


If you want to request a reconsideration, follow these easy steps:

1) Sign in or Sign up to Webmaster Tools with your Google Account.
2) Make sure you have added and verified the site you want reconsidered.
3) Request reconsideration of your site.
