Should I Submit For Google Reconsideration If I Just Lost Pagerank?
Posted 02 November 2008 - 11:44 AM
I have redone many things on the website and don't sell text links anymore. should I submit for Google reconsideration?
I know Pagerank doesnt matter in ranking but advertisers still like it and that is my major income from the site

That's quite a strong statement you're making. Are you sure you mean that?

I'll leave the answer to your question to someone who knows more than me about the intricacies of it.

JohnMu has such a cheerful Google outlook.
I still stand by my advice below.
Note: at the moment, based on your post, only TBPR is affected. In making a reinclusion request you are asking for a full manual/human review. If you are not pristine you run a considerable risk. Consider carefully.
On the basis of what you have said, no.
should I submit for Google reconsideration?
Note that TBPR (toolbar PageRank) drop is not a reconsideration option. If your pages have generally suffered a major SERP collapse, then yes; but not otherwise.
If your site isn't appearing in Google search results, or it's performing more poorly than it once did (and you believe that it does not violate our webmaster guidelines), you can ask Google to reconsider your site.
Requesting reconsideration of a site
Remember that TBPR is only updated a few times a year and you have no input/control whatsoever. All you can do is suffer and wait and hope. Or totally ignore it as do I.
TBPR (as opposed to internal unknowable PR) doesn't matter for anything.
I know Pagerank doesnt matter in ranking but advertisers still like it
Unless your advertisers are buying backlinks rather than ad space. And I would be very very quiet in public if that is the case.
If your SERP hasn't much changed but the TBPR has dropped then you are likely tagged as selling links. And that may never go away. In any case all you can do is clean up to Google's standards and stay that way...and wait. At a minimum I would not expect to see a TBPR change for several months.

I have actually changed the website's direction to become attractive to actual visitors and not just the advertisers (hoping to put an e-commerce on the site soon)...
I have tried to comply with all Google's policies, but I am also afraid of what you said about being reviewed by a human might prove cruel...
So I'll just wait and hope for the best. (actually my SE rankings have improved during this same period).

I've got rid of all the paid links, but I'll probably post the website in the website hospital today to get it reviewed by you guys for something that I might have missed.
