Screen Shot Of Google’s New Rejection Notices For Reconsideration Requests

Google-Webmaster-toolsAt SMX Advanced last week, Google’s head of search quality, Matt Cutts, announced that they will be revising their reconsideration requests rejection noticed with more detailed responses in some cases.

We’ve now located an example of the new rejection notices, as shared by @johnedwarddoyle with me on Twitter.

The new notice has a new section at the bottom titled “A note from your reviewer.” Then the Google reviewer was able to give specific advice that, at least in this case, would be extremely helpful to the webmaster with the manual action.

Here is a picture of the reconsideration requests rejection notice, with the new note from the Google reviewer:

Now that seems useful, unlike the more templated responses Google has been responding with.
