Google launched the Penguin Update targeting webspam earlier this week. If your site got hit, but you think your site is scores away from webspam, then you can file an appeal with a new feedback form, that has been provided by Google.
For those innocent of webspam
Google has come up with a feedback form where webmasters can make an appeal to Google if they have been pulled down wrongly. This was tweeted by the head of Google’s web spam team, Matt Cutts. The tweet went something like this, “If you know a site affected by algo update that you don't think should be affected, we made a form to provide feedback: http://goo.gl/nt3Pz.”
The form invites details of your site by mentioning that it is for people who think their site was wrongly affected by the "Penguin" webspam algorithm update on April 24th, 2012. You have to provide the URL of your page, and a query which shows “non-ideal results”.
For those guilty of webspam
Google wants the guilty reported too. That is why, post the Penguin update, Google has advised people to use the standard spam reporting page, and report any spam that you believe should have been smacked by the Penguin Update. The search engine has directed webmasters to use the “Report webspam” button to make their complaint. Remember that when you are reporting a spammy page, you must use the word “penguin” as part of the details field.
