First time it was 3 days, second, 8 days, third 3 days. After which the banner was removed, assuming it passed...
The "reviewed" email doesn't give indication of which way it went.
I think I checked the webmaster tools area ever day up to the final email, and the banner was still showing. After the email, I checked and it was gone.
I'm hoping it's not a coincidence, but the timing would indicate it was removed after the third request was processed, but it seems as if I can't be sure now.
Nothing is returned for site:exanple.com.
But, after the third processed email, the banner was gone, and it did say "Pages are included in our index" but they aren't.
Now it says, Top search queries: No data available.
But I'm seeing Links to your site. It's showing many links to my pages, along with keyword info, and 23 pages indexed form the sitemap, which is strange.
Thanks again for your help and info MrSavage.
I too expected it to show in site: after, but like you say, many people say you need to wait.
Also, I honestly feel as if I have done more than enough on my site, I have gone way beyond what I needed to do.
