    If the site gets delisted or moved down in rank for blackhat activities"

    - for how long TYPICALLY it happens till it gets back?
    - if one of the sites is penalized, does it effect your site network if hosted under the same IP group, same host?

    I will answer first question:

    Banned websites do not come back unless you appeal for reinclusion and succeed. If website is pushed down the ranks, i think it means it is sandboxed. This is where your website sits for at least 6 - 18 months until it settles back to its place.

    I've rarely had it go on for more than a month or two but then again I keep backlinking sites even when they are down in rank
