I KNOW this has been discussed countless times in this forum, but i havnt been around for a while and i noticed that the rules have all changed. I used to refer to Matt Cutts blog, but i think even that is outdated and google's tool kit now has some reinclude form on it. These rules have changed so many times, in the old days i remember sending an email to a specific address, then using some special url. Now the toolkit. Is there a current definitive method that works? My site has been dead for the past 3 months and i'd like to get back in but unsure which method is most succesful in the current index rules. Also what is the best method to keep your seo in tact without being banned from google? If i do the "whitehat" site then my seo is worthless and my site wont rank for a thing, however keeping my current seo setup is what got me banned. If there is a new list on how to rank well without being tooooo whitehat i'd really like to know the link or see a discussion here. It kills me to having spent so many years building up a site only to see it completely DEAD in the engines now. Sorry to bring up a repedative topic.
