If any of you have experience with getting a penalized website reinstated, I would love to hear your story.

My site was banned 2 years ago, I believe because of having affiliate links. Since my site has grown and matured considerably, the content far exceeds the affiliate links. So, I emailed and asked for reconsideration of the penalty. I saw someone from Jeeves looking around my site and they hit some of my better content pages. So, given that they visited and pulled 8 content pages, there is hope that they will release my site.

Unfortunately, I have heard nothing back, and I have seen no jeeves spidering activity. I am not sure if the spider response would be immediate or what.

Any idea want to add anything? Any experience dealing with Ask? Don't tell me they aren't worth worrying about because I have another very small, 7 page website that is 3 years old that gets 45 to 50 visitors a day from them, with mediocre rankings. That is nothing to sneeze at these days, IMHO.

They are making some headway.
