Let's assume that your site was indexed and ranking nicely, with lots of incoming links etc... and then was dropped completely from the index.

Google continues to crawl the site nightly but will not index.

So, you clean up the html, correct any broken lnks, ask google support for help (and get the canned response), switch isp, increase your adwords budget, all to no avail.

Now in desparation you conclude that it must be some on-page seo factor like keyword density etc. And you decide to begin adjusting these factors...

Let's say that you lower the keyword density today and googlebot crawls the page tonight. How long should you wait to see if your changed page has indexed, before making further adjustments? In other words, assuming that G finds your page and it's acceptable, what sort of time frame can you expect before the page appears in the index?

I switched ISP and improved my crawl rate by 1000

My time frame?
37 hours

So if you change anything and it was a key factor, I reckon you'll find it's sorted within two days, at least for a site that is crawled daily.

From the way you've stated it doesnt' looks that the problem has anything to do with
on-page seo factor

... and then was dropped completely from the index.

I assume that the site is not ranking not dropped from the index. Being dropped from the index means that the site does not show for site:www.domainname.com

If that is the case there is no timetable to be reincluded.

If you simply not ranking for the keywords it depends on the Page Rank of the Page. With a PR5 it can be updated between 1-3 days. If it's lower it will simply take longer.

when you say "Being dropped from the index means that the site does not show for site:www.domainname.com"
- what happens as in my case that it shows pages -well just the URL (no description, title or cached option) for virtually my whole site?

That is a different story. You are being indexed but you will not be ranking. It is case by case ... I had a few like that, some have been solved some not.

If you want sticky me your url and I will look into that.

Yes my site HAS been dropped from the index.

no www.mysite.com
no site:mysite.com

Actually "site:mysite.com" shows 2 results from another site.

Does it show any PR? If it has PR, it hasn;t been dropped. IF it had PR and now shows a PR 0, you must have done something to anger the Google Gods. Often one is lead to believe that thier site isn;t index when it's been sandboxed or triggered some filter and appears so far down that you even give up hope trying to find it.

I'm having a similar problem with one of my sites... it's in the sandbox or has triggered some filter and is rankingterribly in Google at the moment.
