Reconsideration requests are for manual penalties, not algorithm changes/site downgrades.

You don’t need a robots.txt file in order for your website to be crawled or indexed.

Adding websites to a disavow list does not hurt the reputation of the website that has been added.

It doesn’t matter whether you use bold tags or strong tags.

There is no “duplicate content penalty”.

Disavowing the bad links to a website is not enough to get a manual penalty removed.

Foreign top level domains (.com, .ca, .org etc) are usually treated differently by Google.

You are allowed to ask people to link to your website (it’s not against Google’s webmaster guidelines).

Not all websites go through a “sandbox” period.

Manual Google penalties DO expire.

Meta descriptions and meta keywords are no longer used as rankings factors.
