If you’ve received a manual penalty and have made a good-faith effort to fix the issues that triggered it, you can request Google to review your site so that you can have the penalty lifted. This is what is known as a reconsideration request.
After you submit your site for reconsideration, Google will confirm receiving a reconsideration request in the same way they acknowledge receiving a disavow file. The specific text seems to vary, often to manage expectations regarding the expected processing time.
Currently, there’s no officially guaranteed turnaround time for reconsideration requests to be processed. Experience shows that this process can take anywhere from a few hours (rare) to a few days (more common) to several weeks (worst-case scenario).
