Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a website which was recently penalized by Google and all of a sudden it stopped caching my pages. After some research, I found out that issue was due to too many duplicate titles as depicted in webmasters.

I used noindex to those duplicate urls and after 3-4 days of my putting noindex, Google restarted caching my website.

Does it indicate that Google Penalty has been removed or will it be removed in future or it has no relation at all?

Also, I have not seen any improvement in the traffic though.

It's a positive sign but there's no way to know at this point. –  John Conde Nov 29 '13 at 15:26
    
@JohnConde Thanks a lot for quick response :) Would like to inform you that we were hit on 12th of November and our traffic was reduced to 20% . We guessed it to be a PANDA penalty –  Prashant Singh Nov 29 '13 at 15:37

Generally you will not see traffic gain in just one-two days... You have to wait at least for a month. Google started re indexing your site is good sign. Now google bot will move around your site. And if everything is OK then you will see your site in Google search. Google bot will try to check each page through each angle and will evaluate your site and your penalties will be removed.
