Reconsideration Request Template – Heavily Spammed Domain

This is a site that had thousands of spammy links and was penalised with a manual action in April 2012. The manual action was revoked in April 2014 using this template.

Hi, mysite.com has a manual spam action: Unnatural links to your site—impacts links
I believe the problem is that we have some poor backlinks left over from some misguided SEO work that we had done in the past. We have collected together lists of backlinks from MajesticSEO, Ahrefs, Moz, our own lists and of course Google Webmaster Tools. We have tried our best to clean up our link profile.

Link Removal

There are 3721 links that have been checked and/or removed completely from sites that we think may be causing problems, you can see these here in this list:

Link Disavow

We found a further collection of links that we did not like, but were unable to get removed. We decide to add these sites at domain level to a disavow file which now contains 503 disavowed domains. The disavow file was uploaded to Google Webmaster Tools on April 15, 2014. A copy of this can be found here:

We will visit the inbound links section of Webmaster tools regularly to check no bad links have appeared since writing this. If any do, we will do our best to remove them and if that is not possible we will disavow them.

We now believe mysite.com no longer violates the Google guidelines and ask for your reconsideration of the manual action.
mysite.com a ticket marketplace to buy sports Tickets for popular sporting events all over the world. The site has a secure and guaranteed online booking system.
We have used some poor SEO strategies in the past, which we now realize have hurt our rankings. We do not do anything like this anymore, instead we are concentrating on providing valuable content for our clients.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
