If you are certain it wasn't the content, I don't see why you couldn't re-use it somewhere else, although it would be best to change it a bit.
First of all, I think you "must be" able to identify what causes you problem and avoid doing it again. If it is the on-page factor, you are at risk to repeat your mistake in your new domain. If it is the off-page page, then tweaking those identical pages to certain degree would be a good idea.
So the lesson learned is better to do the things moderately. Going beyond the borderline could be more expensive.
I love Google, but their support really makes me mad.
Review everything that you have done for content and building links in the last 2 months. The answer is at least one of those changes. I would not publish the same content on another site, this will only cause problems in the future. Besides you will probably be blocked by the sandbox. I looked at your profile and it looks like you are in one the dirtier neighborhoods where alot of seo is back hat. If you are in that area I would build several sites with unique content and do not interlink them. Chances are this is only your first Google penalty and you will want to diversify your traffic and revenue.
ps double check your robots.txt file
You should demand your money back on that support contract.
Otherwise, you just might consider that you are not, in fact, "banned" but that there is something else happening that is keeping you out of the index. There have even been cases where hosting services have blocked googlebot because it takes up too much bandwidth.
Since they send out a different canned response when sites do not mee their quality guidelines, then it would be best to assume that there is some other problem. And it is your job (not Google's) to figure out what that problem is.
Seriously though, while buying Adwords probably won't get you BACK in, I've proof that buying Adwords can keep you from getting banned in the first place if you're a buyer before you get caught spamming. Seriously, try it. Find a spammer who's a big Adwords spender and send in a few detailed spam reports. You'll be amazed at how fast those sites either clean up the offending spam, or have no action taken against them at all. In several instances that I've experienced with this, the spam has always been removed within a week of submitting the report. And in all cases, the spam was there for months to years before the report.
Kinda makes you wonder doesn't it? Can we avoid the dreaded banning by paying our annual due to the G gods via Adwords?
*Disclaimer* While I know that Adwords won't save you in ALL cases... it will in many. So before ya flame me I'm not saying this is THE rule... simply that it's an interesting phenomenon.
Maybe I know where is problem. I have a few pages with picture galleries suppose football players galleries. There is a few identical words and identical design but different title (Manchester, Liverpool etc.) and different pictures (which google don't see). So I could be banned for having identical pages with only different title...Will google banned my site if I will have identical pages with same title (for example football teams)?
DRGather: I use this domain for google adwords...
