    so so so so happy ... finally can see my site in the serps again after a massive slap.

    for those that want to know i hit my site with a couple sb and xrumer blasts direct to my site home page ...
    I know before anyone says never blast your own money site - school boy error.

    But today i noticed its back in the serps :)

    was on page 2 before the hit and now its back to page 15.
    (better then nothing i guess)

    was banned april - so it took around 6 months to get the ban lifted.
    i didnt do anything to get it removed. Infact i have not done a single thing for the site since the ban kicked in!

    good point but it will be a interesting test to see where it returns too?
    at the point of its ban it was close to the top of page 2 ... if it gets back to there then i will be like a pig in shit!

    Banned? Your website was completely deindexed or simply wasn't showing up in the SERPs?

    not a complete ban.
    the 4 kw's that i targetted (across 2 pages) both pages were totally removed.
    The site was still in the serps if i searched for the site name.
    As i didn't have any other kw's or pages ranking other then the 4 kw's across 2 pages i couldn't tell if there was any other bans/effects.

    Like to share what you did to get slapped and what exactly did you do to bounce right back? A site of my friend has been punished and he is kind of down in the dumps. He had been going on a submission spree before he got punished.

    Sure ,,,, i had a site with the age of over 10 years.
    redesigned it and made lots of changes (approx Jan time)
    between feb-april i did

    1 x 20k xrumer blast on 4 kw's pointing directly at 2 pages on my site
    1 x 10k sb blast on the same kw's and pages as above
    1 x 10k xrumer blast on the same kw's and pages as above

    When google Panda kickedin (around april-may) i got the boot.
    when i say i got the boot the 4 kw's that i targeted with the above blasts all disapeared ... i mean i couldn't find them in the first 50 pages of google results where they had been on page 1/2 before this.

    The site wasn't removed as i could still find in in serps if i searched for my domain name. Just these 2 pages.

    so what did i do ... other then cry a bit i thought fu*k it! and forget it!
    I left the site, did nothing.

    Then a week or so ago it reappeared?

    i noticed by chance for one of the kw's above on about page 15 of the results. it then jumped to page 10 , then to page 8.
    At the moment its sitting on page 10?

    I will keep you updated to see if it drops again. but so far i have done nothing.

    My site had been sandboxed as well (url in signature) and it took me 1 year to get it back on SERPS....but now it's on PR3 within a month of getting back on SERPs. (I did only WH-SEO and result is......PR3 now)

    Congratulations to you OP for seeing your site back on SERPs, no doubt it really make you feel happy.
