Error pages dropped from index

Hi Guys,
We had a set of pages dropped from the Google index because they had an asp error right at the bottom of the last page in the page run, so the page looked fine if you were looking at page 1 : 2 : 3 : but if page 4 was the last in the run an error occured.
Google dropped these pages due to the spider obviously not being able to completely spider them.
My question is, now that we have resolved the issue - how long will it take to get the pages back? Or are the penalties going to stay and force us to build new pages.

Thank you

URLs that give an error response are spidered again and they can return to the index once the error is fixed.

However, I'm not sure you've got the right analysis for your situation. Google will naturally want to drop an error page from their results, but not the other pages. There may be some other reason that these pages are not included.

It is very common for Google not to include all the URLs from a website. For example, pages that are at the end of a long click path and not linked to in any other way may be omitted. Pages may also be omitted if they are similar to other pages - the same products in a different order or something like that.
