So far from our SEO test and in referenced with manual time-based Google penalties, we can

confirm (also double confirmed by Matt Cutts of Google) the following ones (there are about

20 others under ongoing test, and we will be updating them on conclusion of testing results):

Cloaking-based penalty: 1-3 months expiration (yes, they are different levels to this one).

Spam-based penalty: Depending on the offense (this one we can’t determine timeline yet).

Hidden-content penalty: Most cases within 1 month this one expires assuming is corrected.

Notes: Algorithm-based penalties don’t rely on re-inclusion requests to end, only manual ones.

Also, 301 redirects do not cause penalties as some SEOs  think, rather a trust-based delay filter.
