What are the consequences for being chucked out of the major SEs?

And how do we recover from them?

Are your referring to your site being banned? If so, the consequences can be horrific if you were relying on search engine traffic. Some visitors also like to research a domain before doing business with them. If your domain is banned, it will no longer appear for a domain name search, this might also deter someone from furthering a business relationship. The list is really endless.

As far as what what you can do about being banned (if that is what you meant by "chucked out"), that really depends on why you were banned to begin with. Was it because of linking to a bad neighborhood? Were you cloaking, using hidden text, doorway pages or any other on page or off page spammy techniques? Has your ip address been banned for spamming?

Whatever the reason, you first need to identify it, clean it up and send an apology e-mail to the search engine in question explaining how you are sorry and ask if you could be included again. But, there are no guarantees that the ban will be lifted.

So i take it that a mod rewrite wouldn't be much good either?

But suppose I had an information based site rather than an ecommerce site.

What would i have to do get the web content up again?

Change host, ISP, webhost etc

Has anybody had any experience of this?
