We're still not doing well. We were hit in the first wave of penalties mid-May (-50). We took down a bunch of suspicious looking links, fixed some other little stuff and submitted a reinclusion request about 2 weeks ago. Google told us it reviewed the request on July 10th. It was the canned response that everyone gets:
"If we don't find any problems, we'll reconsider our indexing of your site. If your site still doesn't appear in our search results, check our Help Center for steps you can take."
From what I've read, not everyone sees immediate results.. how long should we wait before we can be fairly certain that things are not going to get better?
One thing we've noticed that we thought was really strange is that we haven't been crawled since May 30th.
Has anyone else experienced this?
