I got a notification in Google's Search Console stating:

Google has detected structured markup on some of your pages that violates our structured data quality guidelines. In order to ensure quality search results for users, we display rich search results only for content that uses markup that conforms to our quality guidelines. This manual action has been applied to zippi.co.uk/ . We suggest that you fix your markup and file a reconsideration request. Once we determine that the markup on the pages is compliant with our guidelines, we will remove this manual action.

Here’s how to fix this problem:

1 Update your markup to follow our structured data guidelines Fix erroneous markup or remove markup that does not accurately represent the content of your page.

2 Submit a reconsideration request. Once you fix your site, file for reconsideration to remove this manual action. Include any details or documentation that can help us understand the changes made to your site.

I have fixed the suspected issue but when I go to submit a reconsideration request it says there have been no manual action taken.

What does this mean? Was this not a manual action? And what should I do next?

    Sometimes Googles Search Console is a bit slow. It may take an additional day or two more before a manual action shows up online. I have seen e-mails show up before the online notice before. Let's hope this is the case. Otherwise, I am not sure what to say. Sorry. Cheers!! – closetnoc Aug 23 '16 at 15:14
  • Hi @closetnoc you are right, it has been 2 days and the form has become available. – GrapeSoda Aug 25 '16 at 8:39
