A reconsideration request

How easy is it to put up a reconsideration request to Google say if you buy a domain and later on realize that it has been blacklisted? My thinking is that this is a very complicated process. Are there instances or grounds that Google can use to decline such a request?

I have always wondered if there is a definite timeline for a reconsideration request to be completed. I have also heard that it is much harder to send a request for a parked domain. Overall, it is much easier if you submit a consideration request for a site that has content.

I had to ask Google for a reconsideration request for one of my domains I purchased without checking it first. I took a screen shot of the whois to prove that I just purchased the domain two weeks prior. I explained that the content was new, that there was not an email address associated with the domain name. It was a parked for sale page. Google took about 3 weeks, never directly answered my request. I found out that the request was approved just by trying to go to the page one day and it was not blocked anymore. So it may have been faster than 3 weeks but I just didn't find it until then. So it can be done. My only other experience was a false positive for malware on another domain that I purchased. 5 emails and a phone call later to Avast had that page free after 3 months. Google was much easier.

What a sequence of events and did you pick up the issue of no response with them? I searched online and there is a step-by-step guide from Google where they state that they acknowledge all requests and respond accordingly (be it approval or rejection).

I probably should have but no I did not take up the issue of no response with them. I was just glad to have it over with and the domain not blocked anymore.

I would probably have done the same. My worry would be that person who wouldn't care to check if the domain was up and running, rather waiting for a word from them. Worse still, you wouldn't be happy to see a rejection response. Either way, it is good you got your domain back.
