So you have gotten a Google penalty? Google penalties can come in two different ways which are partial matches and site-wide matches. And there are two ways that you can also get penalties from Google. That would be cloaking which is the act of showing a different web-page than what is shown to Google. The second one is sneaky redirections which is sending the user to a different page with a link that is different than shown to Google. But don’t worry there are also ways to recover from this Google penalty. 

The Google penalties can be fixed with these small simple steps: 


1. What you want to do is go to Google search console, then crawl, then fetch as Google, then fetch the portions that are affected on the portions of your website. 


2. Compare the content that has been fetched to the one that is on google. 


3. Then make changes to the different parts of the websites so that they can be the same. 


4. Also what you want to do is check all of the redirects that send the users on the website to a different direction than the ones that are shown on google. After that, you should remove them. 


5. Last but not least, you need to submit a reconsideration request form that for Google after you have fixed all of the problems that have come up. 

With these small simple steps, you can fix the penalties that you had got from google from either Cloaking which is the act of showing a different web-page than what is shown to Google. Or you had got it from sneaking which is sending the user to a different page with a link that is different than shown to Google. Both are major violations of the webmaster’s guideline for Google. 

Cloaking also has the first click violation which is when a webpage shows the full page to google but restricts the user from viewing the webpage when the user clicks on it. This problem can be fixed with two simple steps. 


1. is to make sure that the webpage content matches the same webpage shown on Google if not make the necessary changes to make sure that it is. 


2. is to send in another reconsideration request form to Google. 

Cloaking can also be for images too. For example, if the image redirects them another webpage that is not related to the image. Also, if the images are different than the ones shown on google. Steps to fix this are: 


1. make sure the images are the exact same as the ones that are on google. 


2. submit another reconsideration request form

Last but not least, also have the pure spam pages which unlike all of the other examples nobody can say they don’t know about. These are just either a whole bunch of gibberish on a webpage. Or either has scraped content. You need to make sure you make all of the changes necessary before you submit a webpage reconsideration form.
