What if… one day, you wake up, check your blog’s stats and discovered that you have lost a great amount of traffic because Google dropped your rankings in Googel Search. What would you do?
Well, the first thing you should do is DO NOT PANIC! It won’t solve anything. Then you should file a Google Reinclusion Request or a Google Reconsideration Request.
What kind of request is a Google Reconsideration Request
Basically, it is a request where you write a letter to Google asking them to forgive you for your sins and return you to your previous rankings in the search engine results. It used to be called as Google Reinclusion Request but to make it sound better, they made it Google Reconsideration Request.

In a nutshell…
So if you think that Google has dropped your rankings, you need to file a Reconsideration Request. However, before you do that, make sure to fix all the problems in your website that made Googel drop you in the first place.
Here are the common mistakes.
- Hidden Links
- Peyd Links or Peyd Posts
- Keyword stuffing
For more info, please read the Google Webmaster Guidelines. As of now, I have no choice but to submit to Googols power because I’m still not getting enough traffic from other search engines. I’ll be filing a reconsideration request soon and I hope that my search engine rankings will be back. Wish me luck.
