answering the op's ?'s about my situation
May I ask if you were able to un-ban some/all of these sites eventually
Nope*. I sent re-inclusion requests for 4, never heard back from G.
What I did was take some sites off the web completely. (mostly newer smaller ones)
Some I have left up. (as kind of a test)
*Some I did 301 redirects to new domains. I did this about 4 months ago. They are all indexed by G and get traffic. But not like before. I see them as "sick" & don't expect to invest a lot of time into them.
not all of my sites got banned. Was that the case with you?
About half my sites were banned. They all had adsense(except for one), some of them were also my affiliate moneymakers. My adsense acct. is still active BTW. It won't be used again though :)
