    Try getting your pages indexed in Google. Submit sitemap in G WMT. This will help getting some numbers in index status..

    Either your indexed our your not, do a site: search.

    GWT is usually slow with updating data. I guess you have a new site?

    This is an old site. (The site I previously put in a thread saying it was hit again by an update and now dead.) It's still ranking on the 1st page of SERPs for some keywords but traffic is really down the gutter. I did a 'site:domain' and yes it is still indexed. I was thinking probably there's something wrong with it so I looked at it in my WMT and that was the thing that I found.

    (Yes, I'm trying to revive it while I create new ones.)

    I think it is a penalization of unnatural works/over optimization etc.

    There is no such specific time. If you can resolve those issues, then resolve them and request Google for reconsideration of your site.

    I already asked for a reconsideration from Google and they said there was no manual spam penalty. And this leaves me at a lost where to start. That is the reason why I checked my WMT. I was able to survive Penguin 1 by posting content and doing some backlinks, but in this latest Penguin and 'query spam' updates my traffic just worsen.

    I don't know if it's best to wait for months if the penalty has a duration. I'm really at a lost here.
