I have purchased a legacy domain which was hit by Panda/Penguin in 2011/2012 for paid link networks. When I redirected my old site to the new domain I purchased, organic traffic and rankings immediately and significantly declined. I have gone through the link profile of the legacy domain and disavowed all sketchy/spam paid links.
I suspect that a Panda/Penguin penalty from 2011/2012 has been recently reactivated or reinstated because of the site move.
Is there a way for me to view past webmaster tools manual actions / penalties from a previous site owner? With the new way google handles reconsideration requests...if you do not have a current manual action, you CANNOT file a reconsideration request.
