I'm not sure what you mean. Googlebots crawl every page on the site several times everyday and has for years.
Isn't that what it does for your website?
I probably should be more clear. My question is how long until any penalties are lifted. Using "How Long for Google to Notice?" was not the best choice of words. We have not been notified of any problems in WMT but our page ranks dropped years ago to 4's and 5's when it was much higher before that.
Yes, we have made up our mind. We are not posting paid links without a 'nofollow' on the rel attribute of the anchor tag. Not only does it hurt our ranking with Google but it also hurts the person who bought the link as Netmeg mentioned.
If I misunderstood what you meant by "Google crawls your website" let me know.
