One thing that I took away is that Aaron Wall seems to think that Google is outsourcing their review of reconsideration requests. I don't think Google would go to that length to handle the 5000 requests per week, but it is consistent with their claim that humans are reading them.
From my experience, I thought that Google's employees are looking at the recently dead links count on a domain before they even read the RR. How could they go by the letter and support documentation? Our summaries of our link removal efforts could be totally doctored, and the letters are always going to hit the same points. The real test is how many links are dead.
I always imagined an engineer that works close to Webspam used Dmoz as an example link. Someone unfamiliar with the details of SEO, but close enough to handle part of the 5000 RRs a week. Maybe they got Dmoz mixed up with the low quality directories using ODP data.
" If you have been practicing the articulated website building regulations, you might be among those already reaping the benefits of compliance. On the contrary, if you implored the use of manipulative links in the building and design of your site, expect your traffic to reduce up until the time when your will be cleared by Google after having complied with the regulations set forth for building of websites."
I've always asked these kinds of clients "What do you have on your product pages that set you above everyone else on the same data feed?" The answer was usually "not much" because they had thousands to write descriptions for. Now that this version of the thin content issue is official, a lot of retailers are going to be gnashing their teeth.
Ain't that the truth.
