Dear Fellows,
I received the message in my webmaster tools, Would you please help me what is it and what my next strategy should be to get rid of it.

"
Thin content with little or no added value
This site appears to contain a significant percentage of low-quality or shallow pages which do not provide users with much added value (such as thin affiliate pages, cookie-cutter sites, doorway pages, automatically generated content, or copied content)"

Regards,
Asif

    You've posted one link couple of years ago (leathercoverstore). That's got very thin content with Amazon affiliate links. If your site is anything like that, I believe you've got your answer.

    It means the content on your website is of low quality !! The page in your site may require refreshed content, so i'd say change your content !! It's content base penalty ....

    I think your site content quality is very low or are you using spun content? if yes then remove all and use unique and well written content.

      It is not a spun content but thin is the major reason. How much time shall it take to come back ?

        How much time for what? Once you've corrected the problem you might be able to submit a manual reconsideration request. I've heard that penalty might expire, but I'm not sure how long would that take.

          You have heard that the thin content of 2014 will become the quality one in 2020

          It isn't so. OP, if you haven't recognized the quality of content on your site over an entire year, then you must consult an SEO specialist to figure it out what's actually wrong there or post the link to your site here to get free suggestions.

          Once you correct the problems, you can submit a review request from WMT to let Google review your site. After that, it is up to Google either it ranks you or not.

    Before submitting a reconsideration request, remove all the adsense and affiliate contents and gain some traffic by sharing your refreshed page on social sharing sites at least for couple of weeks. This will help in strengthening you web presence as well as approving your site in the first go.

      Manual penalty is bad both for the webmaster and web.Your site is penalized by Google penguin and Panda. As seen in the thumbnail,the manual penalty can only be remove by trying
      • Remove all adds and affiliate links.
      • Removing low quality or thin content or at least rewrite them.
      • Check the backlinks and try to remove all unnatural links (manually or submitting request to the other webmasters)

    Google didn't say anything about backlinks, so there's probably no need to check those.

    How and why would extra traffic help with the reconsideration?

    Is it possible to be recovered by rewriting all the thin contents if you received the penalty for being a thin affiliate?
