Timeframe to fix Supplementals

I recently put up about 20 pages of new content. Problem was that there wasn't too much content per page (they were defintion pages) and they were top-heavy with code-to-content ration. They just went supplemental.

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.

It seems with new Google algo the pages return to main index from supplemental as soon as they get enough authority.

... 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.

The old version of the page can show up as a supplemental result (when you search for words that were in the old content and are not in the new content), and the new version of the page can show as a normal result (when you search for words that are in the new content).

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.
