Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
So, i've fixed the layout (CSS instead of html) so the code-to-content ratio is MUCH better. From what I recall one has to wait a very long time for pages to get out of the supplemental index(3-6 months). Is this true?
Should I simply start fresh with new pages and write off those that have gone supplemental?
Thanks so much.
I believe that you should not. Just try to attract more links and visitors.... And, if possible, improve that ratio with additional content.
If some of your pages are really low on content, it might be worth investigating combining them - and certainly, for the future, set yourself a 'minimum' level for new pages.
Get a few more incoming links to get the page back into the normal index. Google will still show the old version as a Supplemental Result (when you search for words that were in the old content and are not in the new content) for several years after you make the changes though.
